The Big Brother 2017 housemates line up is set to be one of the most diverse to date.

Ahead of the new series launching on Monday, host Emma Willis has been teasing what we can expect from this summer's show.


She said: "The housemates will be from all walks of life and a real cross section of people from across the country, which sounds like the perfect house to me - all ages, all backgrounds.

"It should bring some very interesting situations. I love the psychological experiment aspect to it and I think having all sorts of different ages and backgrounds there lends itself well to the original idea of the show. I can't wait!"

Emma added: "What excites me is the 'everyone is welcome' message that comes with the eye logo this summer."

However she confessed: "I don't know what most of the plans are but it's a good tease for the new series."

It was reported this week that us viewers could end up choosing the housemates who actually enter the house in a new twist.

However a Channel 5 spokesperson wasn't giving much away, teasing: “Viewers will have to tune in next week to find out more."

But the channel has promised that the new series will be "the ultimate social experiment" when it launches next month.

Describing Big Brother 18 as a "must-watch culture clash of modern Britain," they teased: "At a time of political upheaval and tough questions about unity in the UK, Big Brother brings you an alternative look at Britain."

They continued: "Standby for a very British summer of contrasts, conflicts and collaboration...and more fireworks than you could imagine, as a selection of people, from a range of backgrounds, come together in the ultimate social experiment.


"The United Kingdom of Big Brother…and everyone is welcome."

Emma Willis will host the LIVE Big Brother launch on Monday night, June 5, from 8:30PM.
