Following news of the show’s return this afternoon, myGC spoke to 2004 Big Brother winner Trevor Butler, who took home the show’s biggest ever prize of $1 million.

The lovable larrikin, who now works in promotions for 1029 Hot Tomato, say’s he’s really excited to see the return of the hit show, but has questioned the rumoured new format.

“I’m interested to see what they’re going to do, and what direction they’re going to take,” he told myGC.

Butler says he understands it will be a whole new concept to the old version.

“I heard it’s going to be in a warehouse and not on the Gold Coast and more like Survivor style,” he says.

There’s also reports it will be filmed months in advance, which means viewers won’t be given the chance to decide the winner.

“In my opinion, I don’t know if it will work,” Butler says.

“But a lot of people have already told me that they’ll be applying and I’m excited to see what the go is.

“I’m really hoping it works out for them!”
