While the highly-anticipated Big Brother VIP hasn’t even premiered yet, news about next year’s season of Big Brother has already started appearing online.

Channel Seven released a new trailer at their recent Upfront event teasing an All-Stars season of the popular reality show in 2022 with the theme ‘Back to the Future’.

The video features a voice-over from Big Brother describing the show’s format, with a montage of memorable contestants from previous seasons playing on-screen - including Nova hosts Chrissie Swan and Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald.

“21 years ago, I invited my first ever housemates into my game,” the iconic Big Brother voice announces.

“In 2022, Big Brother is going back to the future. Housemates of the past are re-entering my house and they will come face to face with 12 brand new housemates.”


“You won’t believe who’s been knocking on my door, dying to come back in. Wait until you see who I have coming back,” they add.

Since the trailer’s appearance online, So Dramatic! revealed that not only has filming already kicked off on the new season but a number of reported cast members have been leaked.

2013 housemate Tully Smyth is said to be one of the big names making their return to the competition.

The podcast host, who has previously said on Too Much Tully that she’d love to go back into the game, announced earlier this month that she was going off social media for a while.

"BRB, taking a break from social media to be this happy IRL,” she captioned a photo of herself smiling. “TTYL, ILY.”

Joining Tully in the house will reportedly be season nine stars Estelle Landy and Layla Subritzky, best remembered for her iconic song ‘Oats A-La Layla’.

The publication says that two winners have also been added to the line-up, Reggie Bird from 2003 and Tim Dormer from 2013, who previously competed on Big Brother Canada in 2016.

2006 contestant Dave Graham, famously dubbed the ‘gay cowboy’ after coming out on the show, is also allegedly joining the cast.

While So Dramatic! also added that filming will be taking place over the next twelve weeks, fans won’t have to wait long for the explosive season of Big Brother VIP to premiere in November.

The celebrity line-up includes Bernard Curry, Caitlyn Jenner, Daniel Hayes, Dayne Beams, Ellie Gonsalves, Imogen Anthony, Jessika Power, Josh Carroll, Luke Toki, Matt Cooper, Omarosa and Thomas Markle Jr.
