The Big Brother 2017 start date could be on a Sunday for the first time ever this year.

The air date for Big Brother 18 hasn't been officially revealed yet, but sources claim it's been set for Sunday, June 4.

If true, it'd make it the first weekend launch for Big Brother ever, with the show typically starting on Tuesday or Thursdays in recent years.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Channel 5 pencilled in the 2nd to the 6th of June for the launch of Big Brother.

"Normally the show kicks off on a Tuesday which would make it June 6 but this year things are different.”

They added: “All signs point to the show kicking off on Sunday June 4."

However Channel 5 has said that no date has been officially confirmed yet. If the launch is indeed the first week of June, we should know by next week exactly when.

As well as the launch date, it also remains to be seen how long the new series of summer's Big Brother will run for.

Last year's show was the shortest yet, coming in at just 50 days, 16 fewer than the previous series and 44 fewer than the longest run to date.

Meanwhile, more teasers about this year's series have been revealed.

Apparently the revamped house will be reminiscent of "one of Britain's best kept villages", which ties into the previously released British themed eye.

Last week Channel 5 confirmed the first details of this year's show, saying: "This summer, Big Brother presents a must-watch culture clash of modern Britain."

They added: "At a time of political upheaval and tough questions about unity in the UK, Big Brother brings you an alternative look at Britain."

Talking about the house, Bit On The Side host Rylan Clark-Neal told This Morning: "The BBUK house this series is one of Britain's best kept villages.

"We've got cottages, shops... it's very different, it's the most different I've seen it."

Rylan went on to tease cryptically: "But is everything as it seems?

"We promise to reflect all aspects of Britain..."
