Big Brother's reboot on ITV is coming in October, and the first trailer has been released ahead of its TV premiere during today's (September 8) Rugby World Cup.
The promo – which can be viewed here on ITV's website – sees AJ Odudu and Will Best attempting to do Marcus Bentley's iconic Geordie accent, before the voice of the returning narrator interrupts them to tell them to "stick to presenting".
There's also another clip posted on social media and YouTube (seen below), where AJ and Will are singing and, as Marcus puts it, "butchering" the theme tune.
Elsewhere, there's a new photo of our new hosts sharing a laugh while looking stylish.
You'll notice that none of the promos so far have given us a look at the house yet. Looks like ITV is saving that until closer to the launch to really build the hype up.
AJ revealed that she has been given her blessing by Davina McCall, who hosted the show during the Channel 4 years. "She sent me an amazing video when I got the gig saying, 'You are going to smash it'," AJ said.
Meanwhile, Emma Willis, who helmed the Channel 5 run, revealed she had a secret hand in getting AJ the job.
"I am literally as happy as a pig in muck," Emma said. "She's a very dear friend of mine and I did champion her from the beginning because I love her and I think she's going to do a phenomenal job. And I, for one, am really bloody looking forward to a new era with her – and Will Best, we cannot forget Will Best."
Speaking of Will, he's been vocal in explaining that this revival will go back to basics.
"It’s going back to being real people," he explained. "The focus of this is, it's going to be an entertainment show, but it's going to be fun and funny with all of that emotion and realness that you get with Big Brother.
"Times change, [the Channel 5 version] was the right show for the time, I think. But now I think it’s time for the reality people want to see, which is real people being authentic and that’s where the fun comes."
Big Brother returns to ITV2 and ITVX in October.
