Just a definitive list of where you can find every Big Brother housemate on Instagram.

For the first time in six years, Big Brother Australia has finally returned to our screens.

The new season of the reality TV show, which is hosted by Sonia Kruger, is very different from the original series that first aired in 2001.

In fact, when the series first launched, Instagram didn't even exist. 

But nowadays, a spot on any reality TV show basically equals instant social media fame.

Listen to the latest episode of Mamamia's daily entertainment podcast, The Spill, below. Post continues after podcast.
