The premiere date for the new season of Big Brother Australia has been announced.

The Channel Seven reality show, which is hosted by Sonia Kruger, will return to screens on Monday, May 9.

The upcoming season will see new housemates competing against some of the most iconic housemates of the past, dubbed ‘royalty’.

From 10’s original era of the show, Reggie Sorensen, Trevor Butler and ‘Farmer’ Dave Graham will make a stunning comeback.

Tim Dormer, Tully Smyth, Anthony Drew, Estelle Landy and Layla Subritzky are also set to make a return.

A newly released trailer teases plenty of drama along with some outrageous challenges and steamy hookups.

Reggie and Tim’s returns were already confirmed by Channel Seven last month.

‘This may be a new game but I’m still the same old Reggie. Big Brother is in my blood. I just can’t believe I’m here,’ Reggie, 47, said in a statement.

Reggie won Big Brother Australia season three in 2003 and went home with $250,000 prize money.

It comes after reports that Reggie is being ‘paid peanuts’ to appear, in the form of $170 a day, rather than an up-front fee.

According to New Idea, Reggie was given just two days to decide if she wanted to take part in the series, adding: ‘It seems she’s been taken for a ride.

‘Her return to the Big Brother house was meant to signal better times. Here’s hoping she wins again!’

Of course, should she win the 2022 season she’d walk away with the grand prize of $250,000.

The upcoming season, which was filmed late last year, will see memorable housemates from the past 20 years compete against 12 newcomers.
