The return of Big Brother Australia has been one of the most hotly anticipated premieres of 2020.

And now the stars of the revamped series are on the verge of finding international fame, after Stuff revealed the show is set to air in New Zealand.

The publication reported that the program will replace this year’s season of The Block NZ, which was postponed after production was halted in March amid the global coronavirus pandemic.

Big Brother will premiere in New Zealand on Sunday, June 28 at 7pm on Three, then continue to be shown on Mondays and Tuesdays at 7.30pm.

The series will air three weeks behind episodes currently shown on Channel Seven in Australia – making it a nightmare for fans to avoid online spoilers.

The new season, hosted by Sonia Kruger, is practically unrecognisable from the iconic original show, which ran for 15 hit seasons in the early 2000s.

The current reincarnation sees up to 20 contestants compete against each other in Survivor-style challenges, to have control of the game and nominate people to be ousted from the house.

There will only be one public vote- to decide the overall winner.

While finding international fame might sound like a dream come true for a reality star, Married At First Sight’s Michael Goonan is finding it isn’t all it’s cracked up to be after his controversial series began airing in the US.

 The 29-year-old businessman told Fifi, Fev & Byron last Friday that he was being trolled online by American viewers, bringing back bad memories.

‘I’m getting Yankee insults now… it’s reliving a horrible experience,’ said Michela who has been trying to put his tumultuous relationship with ex-‘wife’ Stacey Hampton behind him and move on with co-star KC Osborne.

When asked how his relationship with the dance instructor was going, Michael said things were ‘good’ but that MAFS airing in America had forced them to address issues from their past.

 ‘It’s weird because America has to prop the whole thing back up, so you’re reliving events from your life that you want to move on from, which is a bit of a difficult one,’ he said, adding that the cast had ‘no choice’ when it came to the show’s international distribution.

Daytime television is set for a ratings war after the BBC announced the November launch of a rival to ITV’s award-winning This Morning show, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Corporation chiefs want to model it on their popular evening programme The One Show, with stars such as Stacey Dooley and Rylan Clark-Neal on the shortlist as potential hosts.

Another name in the running is in-demand former England footballer Alex Scott, who is also tipped to replace Sue Barker as anchor on A Question Of Sport.

Starting at 9.15am, the new show is expected to challenge ITV’s mid-morning stars Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, as well as seeking to attract viewers from Lorraine Kelly’s hour-long show that runs from 9am. 

BBC executives hope the programme will also retain viewers from the Breakfast show, which draws an estimated nine million each week, and it is likely to replace Homes Under the Hammer and Island Medics.

A source close to the project said: ‘BBC Breakfast beats Good Morning Britain every day and The One Show is one of the channel’s most loved and popular programmes, so the concept is based on that. The thinking is that if they can put a daytime version of the show on straight after BBC Breakfast, they’ll keep some of those viewers, and will follow the same formula as The One Show but with segments tailored to a new daytime audience.

‘Everyone at the BBC is very excited about this. They know that this could be quite the rival for This Morning, for the first time ever.’

BBC bosses have spent the past six weeks meeting with behind-the-scenes staff to put the show together, with 2018 Strictly winner Ms Dooley – who has a £200,000 contract with the BBC – favourite to be one of the hosts. 

Radio 2 star Rylan is also being considered. He was previously a stand-in presenter on This Morning but also acts as a reserve for radio colleague Zoe Ball’s daily breakfast slot, as well as being her sidekick on It Takes Two, the Strictly spin-off.

Others in the frame to front the new show include Gethin Jones, Ore Oduba, Angellica Bell and former Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh.

But while all have been stand-ins on The One Show, Miss Scott, 35, is thought to be among the frontrunners.

A source close to her said: ‘She is a great favourite of the BBC, she has so many offers on the table at the moment that nothing should be ruled out.

‘She would be perfect for this new programme, she’s clever and very, very likeable. She has very much become a household name.’

Commenting on the new daytime show, a BBC source said: ‘The mix of content aims to both entertain and inform viewers, providing great company and trusted expertise.’

Carla-Maria Lawson, Head of BBC Daytime & Early Peak, added: ‘Following the success of shows such as HealthCheck UK Live, Daily Kitchen Live and Your Money and Your Life with a mix of good company and expert advice reflecting their concerns, we’re excited to be bringing a new daily, topical live programme to BBC1 at 9.15 following BBC Breakfast, and look forward to sharing more details soon.’

Yazmin showcased her penchant for designer goods as she sported a Fendi fedora and matching bag, while also wearing a glitzy Chanel chain necklace.

The reality star flaunted her svelte physique in a black mini dress, which she kept casual with a pair of black trainers.

Meanwhile, James mirrored his girlfriend’s all black look as he opted for a sophisticated black short-sleeved shirt with linen trousers and espadrilles. 

It comes after Yazmin lifted the lid on her reunion with James during last Sunday night’s episode of The Only Way Is Essex. 

She spoke to Bobby Norris and Nicole Bass about how she ditched her gal pal Amber Turner while on holiday to enjoy a romantic reunion with her then ex James.

Bobby quizzed Yazmin on their relationship and told her he’d heard ‘through the grapevine’ she had left Amber at a beach club and jetted off to meet James.

Confronting Yaz over the situation, he said: ‘What I’ve heard through the Essex grape vine is that you skanked Amber at a beach club and jetted off to Mallorca to meet Lockie.’ 

Attempting to explain herself, she retorted: ‘So I was on my first girls’ holiday ever with Amber in Ibiza and I think that kind of, not worried James a little bit…

‘But he thought God she’s moving on with her life and he was messaging me every day like come out here, so I took the first flight out to Mallorca.’

Appearing happy with herself, she told Bobby: ‘And I’ve got to say it was the best decision I’ve ever made.’

Although the TOWIE gang have been separated due to lockdown, their is still drama brewing in Brentwood, as Amber tries to get to the bottom of Lockie’s intentions with Yaz now they are back together.

Soon after lockdown travel restrictions were lifted last month, Yazmin and James, who were together for two years, were seen kissing at a beach club in Mallorca.

They looked as loved up as ever, showing signs they were on the road to returning to a fully fledged romance, with a source saying ‘sparks are flying’ between them.

At the time a source told The Sun : ‘They’re not officially back together but they’re getting closer and everyone around them wouldn’t be surprised if they got back together. 

‘They’re getting along really well and sparks are flying – it’s like the old days. They’re on holiday with a large group of people but they’re really reconnecting.’

Yazmin and James sensationally split last summer after rumours of cheating on his part – which he vehemently denied.

The couple displayed their turbulent relationship on TOWIE during their two years of being together.

Over the summer months, Francesca enjoyed several holidays and her Instagram was littered with sizzling bikini snaps.  

Aside from her frequent getaways, Francesca was spotted cosying up to a new man during a boozy night out in London earlier this summer.

She looked to be on cloud nine as she got up close and personal with Edward Crossan, vice chairman of London-based waste management company Powerday.

The TV personality, who is family friends with Edward, put on a very affectionate display with the hunk who was previously been linked to TOWIE’s Amber Turner. 

In May last year, Edward was seen enjoying a jaunt on a yacht in Ibiza with TOWIE star Amber, 27, who is currently dating Dan Edgar.

The accomplished businessman was named vice chairman of his father’s company in January and is featured on the company’s website.

‘He has worked in various roles within the company to now being a director overseeing the development of the business.’
