Emma Willis spills on Celebrity Big Brother 2018 line up…

Emma Willis is getting ready to host Celebrity Big Brother 2018 tonight.


After months of rumours this evening will see the official line up for the new CBB series revealed as the show launches on Channel 5.

It’s been confirmed the cast will start with an all female line up in a new twist.

Speaking ahead of tonight’s launch, Emma blabbed: “They were working on housemates up until quite late because they wanted to get it 100 per cent perfect.

“I found out just before Christmas.”

Emma continued: “The cast is amazing. There’s a real kind of, broad variety of women going in and they all have their own unique viewpoints on what they think of women’s rights, feminism, in the 21st century.”

Chatting on BBC Radio 1 this morning Emma went to deny there would be any returning housemates, after rumours Katie Price could be going back in.


Meanwhile, the telly host revealed she had no say in casting the series, but could suggest names.

“I never get a say. I kind of run the show for the 90 minutes we’re on air and then the person in my ear is running the show really,” Emma explained. “I have zero say – but I can suggest because they say if you can think of anyone, just send us a text and let us know.

Although not officially confirmed, the apparent line up for Celebrity Big Brother 2018 was leaked earlier today.


Those ready for the launch are rumoured to include Boris Johnson’s sister Rachel Johnson, model and Ex On The Beach star Jess Impiazzi, Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Malika Haqq, actress Amanda Barrie, ITV newsreader India Willoughby, former MP Ann Widdecombe and Made In Chelsea’s Ashley James.

Celebrity Big Brother launches tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
