Mike was Big Brother’s narrator from season one, which aired on Channel 10 in 2001, until its last season on Channel Nine in 2014.

‘Big Brother spent a lot of time and money on the house and finding the right housemates, with 50,000 people auditioning! A lot was riding on it… and it’s all paid off,’ he said confidently. 

‘I thought it would rate well and it just depended on the housemates… and the housemates are great, so I think it’s going to keep smashing it!’

'A lot was riding on it... and it's all paid off': Mike said a lot of money, time and careful consideration went into launching the reboot, but he believed the new format is 'here to stay'

He also appeared on spin-off shows Up Late and Friday Night Live, and even helped with hosting duties at evictions. Pictured with host Jackie Henderson in 2008

Mike said it was difficult to predict how the new format would be received by viewers, but he knew it would initially perform well.

‘I knew that everyone would watch the first episode, because it hasn’t been on for a long time and I still get messages everyday saying they miss the show and asking when it is coming back.’

‘And it came back and people watched the first episode because they wanted to go, “hang on a minute, who are these people?”, “is it going to be any good?” and so now it will come down to the next few weeks, and how it plays out,’ Mike explained.

He added: ‘Judging by the first few episodes and the advancement of technology in the house and how people are taking to it online- I think it’s [Big Brother’s new format] here to say.’

As for the reboot’s host Sonia Kruger, Mike said he believed she was doing a ‘splendid job’ in the role.

Sonia previously hosted Big Brother on Channel Nine.

So far 20 housemates have entered the compound of the 2020 season, and three have already been eliminated.

Mike said his recap show, The Big Bro Show, would not only cover what viewers may have missed throughout the week, but will include chats with old housemates from previous seasons, recent evictees and insider updates from host Sonia.  

He also interviews former Big Brother stars on his podcast, Mike On The Mike.

hollyoaks star jorgie porter stuns in lingerie in her lavish bed

She’s recently been seen dating hunky businessman Ollie Piotrowski in her hometown of Manchester. 

Yet Jorgie Porter, 32, was kicking back alone on Saturday as she shared a duo of sultry snaps while reclining in her giant new double bed. 

The former Hollyoaks star took to Instagram to post two images of herself sporting a silken low-cut lingerie top as she lay in her unmade bed.

In one of her sultry snaps, Jorgie sipped on a lemon-infused beverage, while in the second she posed with her arms pointed up in the air. 

While she was showing off her cleavage she was also showing of her stunning good looks as she went make-up free and wore her hair in a mussed style.   

Her bed was a sea of fur blankets and cushions, while she was showcasing her eye for interiors with her stylish tree print wallpaper. 

Jorgie herself sat up against a huge stack of cushions, while sharing her health secrets with fans with the caption.

The actress captioned the first post: ‘HOT LEMON !!! Make u feel good !! Morning everyone… I have the best sleep thanks to @belgraviabedco’. 

Boasting about its hidden storage capacity, Jorgie added: ‘Stores my summer clothes underneath in an ottoman style it’s insanely brilliant!!!’ 

And just in case fans had not quite got the message, she captioned her second post: ‘obsessed with my new ottoman bed.’ 

Jorgie has most recently been seen making the most of her relative freedom to roam, when she was spotted enjoying a dinner date with hunky businessman Ollie, 31, in Manchester on Thursday night.

The actress, who is set to set return to Hollyoaks for the show’s 25th anniversary, wowed onlookers in a black mini as she made her way into upscale eatery The Ivy. 

Ollie boasts years of experience as a businessman, serving as the managing director of Pinnacle Holdings, which oversees a broad range of property investments.

He also has fashion credentials among his portfolio, serving as the co-owner of new brand Transpire Clothing.

Jorgie’s outing came several months after she admitted that, after getting plenty of attention on dating apps, she had decided to start virtual dating some of her matches.

Her golden locks were brushed into a sleek, straight style, and she used a glamorous palette of make-up for the occasion. 

Flashing a bright smile, Jessica appeared to be in great spirits despite sporting bandages on her sore nose.

Despite the coronavirus crisis, Jessica opted not to wear a mask as she headed out of the airport following her flight.

Jessica revealed on Thursday that she had her twelfth nose job, which she told MailOnline she didn’t know she was set to have.

The reality personality shared a glimpse of her new nose via Instagram following the cosmetic procedure after visiting the Prof. Dr. Ali Gürlek in Istanbul, Turkey, on Wednesday, before she was seen leaving the city’s W hotel the following day.

Jessica explained to MailOnline: ‘Throughout the years I have had a lot of problems, I have had a lot of nose jobs done in Brazil, Colombia, Iran, America and here in Istanbul with great success. 

‘On the downside I’ve had infections with cartilage, but what caused problems was when they use cartilage from a donor and that’s when my drama started a few years ago.

‘My latest nose job was in January last year in Iran, the doctor cleared all my nose, removed all the cartilage and left it without any cartilage at all. That’s why it was so shrunk.

‘Now Dr. Ali Gürlek in Istanbul used cartilage from my ear and I can breathe much better now.’

Jessica added that she was refused the procedure five times, as she went on: ‘I saw five different surgeons and everybody declined the surgery, they said they didn’t know how to do it and they were overly negative.’

She was having her legs syringed to remove nine litres of silicone oil from her legs and feet, and had a lip lift and liposuction on her jawline as she wanted her face to be ‘more feminine’.

The TV personality appeared to be in recovery as she posted videos in her hotel room via Instagram, and she also gushed about the ‘great job’ her doctor had done with her nose.

Jessica’s nose appeared to have been rounded off while the bridge seemed to be more defined after being constructed from her ear cartilage.

She looked sensational in her social media posts, as she slipped into a flowing red gown that had a plunging neckline to show off her surgically enhanced assets.

‘It is an intrinsic human trait, and a deep responsibility, I think, to be an organ and a blade. But, learning to forgive ourselves and others because we have not chosen wisely is what makes us most human.

‘We make horrible mistakes, it’s how we learn. We breathe love, it’s how we learn, and it is inevitable.’ 

Zara’s posts come after a source revealed to MailOnline that a tryst took place between Zara and ‘someone in the music industry’ around the time she took part in X Factor: Celebrity.

The reality star appeared on the series last summer and autumn, as part of the Love Island pop group No Love Lost.

At this point, she had been in a relationship with Sam for several months – but it’s said the Made In Chelsea star has only recently found out about the infidelity.

‘Sam is obviously distraught about this. He only found out about it very recently and has escaped for a few days. 

‘Zara regrets it and feels terrible. She knows it was a huge mistake and is extremely upset.’

A source also told MailOnline on Thursday: ‘Zara and Sam split towards the end of last month. They had been arguing a lot since moving in together as a result of lockdown and things just built up between them.

‘Zara has moved back to her parents’ house in Essex where she’s taking some time for herself, she really loved Sam so this hasn’t been easy for her.
