New eye and new house! Celebrity Big Brother housemates will live in a 'high end retreat' hotel

Wednesday 19th July 2017

Celebrity Big Brother will launch on Tuesday, August 1.

Channel 5 bosses confirmed the date for the series, which is just four days after the civilian version ends.

As Who’ll Win revealed last week, the Big Brother house will undergo a total redesign, becoming an A-list swanky retreat.

A Channel 5 spokesman said: “The Big Brother house is undergoing a complete redesign ready for its new star guests. It will become a high end retreat inspired by celeb hotel hang-outs.

“But while the celebs kick back and let their hair down, Big Brother never takes a day off – after all, he wants to ensure that the celebrities will have an experience that they will NEVER forget!"

A number of celebs are rumoured to be taking part in the summer series, including Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding, Absolutely Fabulous actress Helen Lederer and Ibiza Weekender’s Jordan Davies.

Controversially, Ex on the Beach star Jemma Lucy is also rumoured to have signed up - and so has her ex-boyfriend Stephen Bear AND his current squeeze Charlotte Crosby. Phew.
