Twenty years ago, nine people entered a purpose-built house to be watched 24/7 by Big Brother – and it changed TV forever.
On Wednesday night, the new host of Big Brother was revealed as Sonia Kruger.
The experienced TV host is a familiar face to Big Brother fans having fronted the show from 2012 to 2014.
Sonia had previously been a major part of the Seven Network, co-hosting Dancing with the Stars and as an entertainment reporter for Sunrise and Today Tonight.
“I knew 2020 was going to be a fantastic year but to be asked to host the big daddy of reality shows is icing on the cake,” Sonia told Hollywood Treatment on Wednesday.
“I’ve always loved Big Brother and this brand new series of the show will take it to an exciting, contemporary level that will make for addictive viewing.”
A Seven Network spokesperson told 7NEWS.com.au, “Big Brother has spoken and Sonia Kruger will helm the new game. Channel Seven is very excited to have Sonia on board for a thrilling new era of Big Brother.”
The newly revived series is set to air just after the Olympics on Channel Seven in July 2020.
