The dynamic duo will introduce 16 brand new housemates from all walks of life as they enter the most famous abode in Britain during Sunday's (October 8). Over the next six week, they will front the social experiment reality show and be on hand to speak to the cast members as they get booted out one by one.
The iconic show – which sees housemates isolated from the outside world for weeks and made stars out of Jade Goody and Alison Hammond – started back in 2000 on Channel 4.

Channel 5 took over the series in 2011 and it got axed in 2018 but after a five-year hiatus Big Brother is back and as Will gets ready to introduce the new cast to ITV2 viewers, Daily Star has taken a look inside his life away from the cameras.
Will's first TV job was on music channel Viva, where he fronted chat show Suck My Pop and the MTV Top 20 chart show. Between 2011 and 2012, he had a spot on T4 – a weekend segment between morning shows on Channel 4 which also boasted Dermot O'Leary, Vernon Kay and Jameela Jamil before being axed.
Remaining with Channel 4 for another year, he went on to present the iTunes festival, The Crush and Love Shaft on the network's various channels. But his prime time break came on ITV in 2017 when he presented the talent show Dance Dance Dance with Britain's Got Talent's Alesha Dixon, however, the show was not recommissioned for a second series.
Although 2023's series will be his first as a Big Brother presenter, Will was a regular contributor to Big Brother's Bit On The Side from 2013 to 2014.

The TV presenter worked with former Big Brother host Davina on Sky 1's Got To Dance over a decade ago and he says she's "the nicest person in the world".
Speaking about spending time with Davina, Will told Daily Star and other press: "I worked with Davina years and years ago on Got To Dance when I was doing T4 and she was the host of Got To Dance on Sky and I did the kind of spin-off show.
"So I would be interviewing her and stuff on set and I just remember her being the nicest person in the world. The whole show had a nice energy because she was so lovely."
Will is loved up with his long-term girlfriend Tobi Rose who he has been with for over 12 years.
He's only too happy to share their romance over on Instagram including their holidays, family days and much more. Will previously paid tribute to his other half, telling his followers on Instagram: "12 years ago today I met this truly one in a 7.88 billion human being.
"She was even my first ever insta post. And if you scroll right you’ll see that, as well as being the love of my life, she’s also frighteningly true to her word."

But I think one of the best things about doing this, is one, I'm just excited that Big Brother is coming back first of all.
"I've been a massive fan of the show over the years, so for the show to come back, for something you love to come back and then to actually get a chance to work on it, that immediately overrides anything else."
