Big Brother Australia is returning for another series in 2012. A spokeswoman for production company Southern Star Entertainment said details such as the launch date, hosts and location, have yet to be confirmed.

Southern Star will produce the show for new franchise owner Network Nine, which secured the rights to the show earlier this year. Big Brother Australia was previously broadcast on Channel Ten, which axed it from its line-up in 2008 after seven years on air.

An official Facebook page has been created by Southern Star in a bid to attract would-be contestants.
