Rylan Clark breaks silence on Big Brother after being 'snubbed' from the show

Rylan Clark breaks silence on Big Brother after being 'snubbed' from the show

The star took to Twitter to share a statement

After five long years - Big Brother is finally back in our lives.

The beloved reality show, which launched the likes of Alison Hammond, Adele Roberts, and Jade Goody into the spotlight, is now back on screens with the ITV reboot premiering tonight (8 October).

While we're all very excited to find out who will be heading into the Big Brother house, with Will Best and AJ Odudu hosting the revival, there's one face we know we definitely won't be seeing.

Rylan Clark has since broken his silence on Big Brother after being apparently 'snubbed' from the show. Have a look:

The iconic British programme was originally hosted by Davina McCall and was broadcasted on Channel 4 until 2010, when it switched over to Channel 5 until its last episode back in 2018.

Rylan won Celebrity Big Brother all the way back in 2013 and even hosted the show's Bit On The Side until 2018 alongside AJ.

After the X Factor star quit as host of Strictly Come Dancing's spin-off, It Takes Two, earlier this year, many keen fans thought it was he was a likely contender in the running to take on the major Big Brother gig.

Instead of hosting the show - which has historically been packed to the brim with endless rows, hilarious tasks and diary room meltdowns - Rylan returned to the telly last month to host the brand-new Channel 4 programme Sex Rated instead.

Fans hoped Rylan would be returning to the show.

Rylan took to X, formerly Twitter, this morning to share a video of the sliding 'Diary Room' doors shutting along with the caption: "Good luck to team @bbuk. Have a fantastic series and welcome back Big Bro x."

Fans were quick to share their reactions to the news with one X user revealing they were 'gutted' he wasn't going to be involved.

"Big Brother wont be the same without you at least you still have a form of Diary room in your house!" they continued.

A second added: "Won’t be the same without you @Rylan but I hope you enjoy as a viewer again and thanks for all the chats and laughs on BBBOTS over the years."

"You’ll definitely be missed Rylan!" penned a third while a fourth added: "It’s a crying shame that you’re not hosting with beauts AJ or reviving BBBOTS in your own wonderfully inimitable style. I’m still hoping you’re going to surprise us!"
