Rylan Clark has responded to the early rumours that he will be the new host of the Big Brother reboot.

The former X-Factor contestant took to Twitter after his name had been touted as the favourite to take up the gig.

In his social media post, Clark tweeted: “Should clarify. I’ve not been asked to host the show.”

However, he did end his tweet by teasing everyone with the following: “So we will see… very early days re. team/host etc.”

Fans began to speculate Clark was going to be the new host after he shared a cryptic post saying: “He was always watching… It’s coming home #bbuk.”

Despite denying the rumour, that still hasn’t stopped people on social media from requesting that he takes up the job.

One fan wrote: “I’d love to see you presenting this; you’re the logical choice.”

Another person commented: “I’d love to see you involved again, you’re passionate about the show and that’s what it needs in its team!”

“Got everything crossed that you will be host,” added another.

Big Brother is set to return to UK TV in 2023 on ITV2 after not being on air for five years. 

The show originally aired in 2000 and was on Channel 4, where it was hosted by Davina McCall, up until 2010 when it was axed by the channel.

It would then return in 2011 on Channel 5, initially hosted by former winner Brian Dowling, before Emma Willis took over until the show’s cancellation in 2018.

Clark was a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother in 2013, and he went on to win the show, leading to him ultimately becoming the host of the spin-off series, Big Brother’s Bit On The Side.
