The brand new eye logo for Big Brother 2016 has been unveiled this evening, featuring a multi-coloured shattered effect – while Channel 5 is also airing the first teaser advert for the new series.

The latest incarnation of television’s most famous motif is made up of two halves – one white and one black – intersected by a mess of shards coloured in yellow, red, blue and pink.

A three-second ‘eye flash’ teaser advert premiered on Channel 5 tonight at 6.00pm, featuring the icon shattering in to hundreds of pieces.

Fans were quick to compare the eye to the one used by Channel 4 for Big Brother 9 (pictured below), which also featured a shattered design, appearing in the titles with a mirrored effect.

No further details about the upcoming series have been confirmed, although Bit On The Side presenter Rylan Clark-Neal teased on Twitter that the eye represents “a brand new game”.

The two halves have been compared to the famous yin and yang symbol, adding fuel to rumours that bosses are planning a twist involving two houses.

The Big Brother house is undergoing its biggest renovation since 2002, with workers currently constructing a 700 sqm extension complete with its own garden that has been described in official documents as the ‘2nd house.

Channel 5 has previously hinted that there are big changes in store for Big Brother this year in a bid to boost ratings, with last summer’s run attracting the lowest ratings on record.

    I’ve read on Twitter that there will be two spaces for housemates to invade? Secretly hoping that if there is an element of gameplay then it might be like the Turf Wars task they did in the year Luke A won. That was actually one of my favourite shopping tasks of recent years, it was quite exciting. Perhaps it’ll be that, over the course of a series. Can’t wait though, whatever it is!

    And perhaps the two halves of the eye are black and white to resemble a game of chess, where the housemates might be in two teams and throughout the course of the series have to knock each other out of the game?

      Exactly! And maybe if they were to keep the public vote in, they might have it where each team nominates a member of the other team and then the public evinces one of them. We can but dream eh
