Big Brother 2008 is the ninth series of the British reality television series Big Brother scheduled to air on Channel 4 and E4. The series will launch on 5 June, 2008, and it is due to run for 13 weeks until 5 September, 2008. This series is rumoured to be starting later than normal so that it does not clash with Britain's Got Talent, currently being aired on ITV.
Big Brother held auditions from 21 November 2007 to 25 January 2008.
It has been confirmed that the series is to be sponsored by Virgin Mobile once again.
The official "eye" logo was revealed on 12 May 2008, on the official Big Brother website. On 15 May the eye started its televised comeback with clips interspersed throughout the breaks, being first broadcast during the break of Come Dine With Me.
It has been confirmed that Big Brother's Big Mouth, Big Brother's Little Brother and Diary Room Uncut will return. It is unknown whether Big Brother On The Couch will return. It has also been confirmed that Davina McCall will return as the host.
Dermot O' Leary will not return to host Big Brother's Little Brother, and has been replaced with Zezi Ifore and George Lamb.
James Corden and Mathew Horne will also not return to host Big Brother's Big Mouth, and will be replaced with a different guest host each week. Live streaming from the house will return to E4, but has been changed from Big Brother Live to Big Brother:Direct From The House.
The series has moved back from the usual 9pm timeslot to 10pm for the first time in four years. We will also see the return of the Saturday highlights shows, which were abandoned for Big Brother 8.
