The former St Bede’s High School pupil and Will Best were recently confirmed as the two new hosts of the Big Brother reboot. 

The two presenters will share the hosting of the main show as well as a nightly live debrief programme where ITV says they will 'debate all the hot topics inside the house'.

The reboot series will see a new cast of housemates walk into the legendary Big Brother house for six weeks as they dodge weekly evictions and house drama. 

AJ is currently hosting a new Channel 4 show called The Greatest Auction.
