Big Brother 2018 UK cast: Meet the new housemates

Here are all the contestants making up the Big Brother 2018 cast of contestants this year.

The new series of Big Brother kicked off tonight on Channel 5 at 9PM.

Lasting for 53 days, it's set to be the last EVER series to air on Channel 5.

The live launch saw host Emma Willis introduce us to a brand new line up of fourteen housemates, competing for a £100,000 cash prize.

The new series is said to be 'the most competitive ever' as the show returns to its roots as a 'true social experiment'.

The contestants entered a revamped house, fresh from the Celebrity series which concluded on Monday.

Channel 5 say the new BB house has been "designed to bring Big Brother back to its roots as a social experiment but everything has been designed to remind the Housemates that they are in a game: maze artwork, intriguing design features, and a gaming table."

The House has propaganda-inspired messaging throughout, to instil a sense of competitiveness in the Housemates.

Big Brother airs on Channel 5. Bit On The Side follows weeknights.
