AFTER five years, Big Brother is finally back on our screens.
The original reality show is now airing on ITV and features TV presenter Will Best as one of the series’ presenters.
Who is Will Best?
Will Best was born in London on February 21, 1985, but grew up in the market town of Tadcaster in Leeds.
He is a television presenter and entrepreneur.
The talented star has worked for all the major broadcasters including Channel 4, ITV and the BBC.

He is also co-founder of audiosplitter.fm.
The budding entrepreneur launched the electronic music sharing website in 2015.
What TV shows has Will Best hosted?
Will started his presenting career at MTV.
Along with none other than Girls Aloud’s Kimberley Walsh, he hosted a series called “Suck My Pop” on VIVA and addressed the MTV Top 20 charts.
In 2011 he joined the T4 family, hosting the show’s annual T4 on the Beach series as well as other slots.
A familiar face at music festivals, Will co-hosted Channel 4’s coverage of the iTunes Festival in 2012 and 2013 alongside Nick Grimshaw.
You knew you had made it in the music industry when you received Simon Cowell’s seal of approval and Will was lucky enough to work with the mogul on an online TV project.
You Generation TV was a weekly global show looking for talented viewers.
Will also hosted a live Skype slot called ‘Ask Simon’ from the ‘X Factor’ judge’s home in LA.
The popular presenter also hosted “Dance, Dance, Dance” alongside Alesha Dixon.
In 2023, Will landed his biggest show yet when he hosted ITV’s reboot of Big Brother alongside AJ Odudu.
Talking about the show, he told The Huffington Post: “Big Brother is the only reality show where you don’t have to have talent, you don’t have to be single, you don’t have to be an influencer – all these things that we’re so used to.” Too, none of that matters .
“So will we have a fair cross-section of British society? And I was assured, ‘Yes, it will be real people’ and ‘Yes, the nature of the housemates means this will have the feel of a social experiment.’ ‘, which also means it’s going to feel very unproduced.”
Is Will Best married?
As of 2023, Will is not married but is in a long-term relationship.
The TV star has been with his girlfriend Tobi since 2010.
The couple lives together and has an adorable dog.
On their anniversary, Will shared a sweet photo of the two of them to celebrate a big milestone.
He wrote next to it: “12 years ago today I actually met this one out of 7.88 billion people.”
“It was actually my first Insta post ever. And if you scroll to the right, you’ll see that not only is she the love of my life, but she’s also shockingly true to her word.”
