PICTURE SPECIAL: Tour the Celebrity Big Brother 2018 house!

Inside the new Celebrity Big Brother UK house

Here's a special all round look inside the new Celebrity Big Brother 2018 which stands awaiting its all star housemates.

The new series of Celebrity Big Brother 2018 starts in just a few hours' time on August 16 and Channel 5 have given the show's famous house quite the makeover.

This year Big Brother's theme is 'Eye Of The Storm', with a selection of celebs who have been "caught up in their own media storm".

The Celebrity Big Brother house will provide them with a luxury paradise to get away from it all.

(Although they'll still be filmed 24/7 by over 40 cameras).

Channel 5 teased of the revamped house: "Any celebrity wrapped up in a media storm needs a quick getaway from the pressures of the scrutiny and what better place to go than the sunny climes of California.

"The interior of the house is a paradise of tropical prints and Hollywood Regency flair.

"The exterior is reminiscent of a Palm Springs desert retreat where our celebrities can relax in a garden of cacti, succulents and a brightly coloured mid-century modern design. But how long the celebs stay relaxed in this retreat is, as always, up to Big Brother…"

Features of the new look house include a closed staircase, the first for a Big Brother house since 2011.

There's also a brand new layout, with two living areas, a luxury bathroom, a pool AND hottub plus an outside bar.

As ever a total of 42 cameras look on and record every move from behind the opulent double sided mirrors providing constant footage for the nightly highlights shows.

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 launches tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
