For the first time in Celebrity Big Brother history, the series will launch with an all-female cast of celebrity housemates in a salute to a centenary of women’s suffrage.
As the nation marks 100 years since women won the right to vote for the very first time, this year’s CBB will initially explore how the all-female housemates interact, from politicians to performing artists, as they enter the house first, ahead of the celebrity male housemates.
Over the course of the series, as the male counterparts enter the house, the housemates will take part in a series of entertaining tasks and hidden experiments which will test their assumptions, challenge gender stereotypes and reveal fascinating truths about what it is to be a woman and man in the 21st century.
Channel 5 have promised that this series will be "celebratory, surprising and insightful” and Emma Willis will return to host the Launch Show and subsequent Live Evictions, whilst Rylan Clark-Neal will return weeknights to host Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On the Side.
With less than two weeks to go until a new batch of celebrities will enter their new home, it’s time to take a first look around the latest Celebrity Big Brother house which includes a fireplace, a sofa in the bathroom and a sauna!
With the identities of this year’s celebrities still unknown, it’s rumoured that Tattoo Fixers star Paisley Billings, Made In Chelsea’s Louise Thompson, ex-Corrie star Shobna Gulati, soon-to-be ex-EastEnders actresses Jacqueline Jossa and Lorna Fitzgerald, businesswoman Michelle Mone, former Gogglebox star Sandra, former Geordie Shore star Holly Hagan, India Willoughby and Sinitta, will all be entering the house.
