MailOnline has contacted Maura and ITV representatives for comment.

It was announced during the Love Island final last month that Big Brother would be revived by ITV after a five-year hiatus.

but according to woman TV heads promise that the reboot will showcase everything viewers loved about the original series and “it’s not going to be like Love Island.”

A source told the publication: “There will be a diverse cast across a range of ages, which is what makes it so special. It won’t be like Love Island, where all contestants are young social media influencers – they want ‘every walk’ of life.

They continued, “There won’t be any outside influence at all – just like in the original series – so they won’t get a day off every week like they do at the villa.”

“He’ll have everything viewers love about a retro series, with nominations, public voting and live evictions, but they want to appeal to a new generation.”

MailOnline contacted ITV for comment.
