This evening saw Big Brother series 18 begin and this year there was a Big Brother first.
For the first time ever Big Brother handed over power to the public. After 15 housemates were revealed, one final housemate position was put up for grabs which was decided by the public in tonight’s live launch, from a selection of candidates.
We were introduced to Andrew from Glasgow, Simone from Tesside, Sue from Bedfordshire and Tom from Swansea.
The four piece pitched themselves to viewers in the live launch before lines opened for the favourite to be decided.
After lines closed, it was revealed Tom had been chosen to enter the house as the People's Housemate. Simone finished the vote in 4th place, Sue was in 3rd place and Andrew was runner up in the public vote.
The People’s Housemate will hold great power within the house, even having access to the outside world.
Tom will join the rest of this year's housemates who were unveiled throughout tonight's launch show.
They include Ex On The Beach star Kayleigh Morris and Dreamboys' stripper Lotan Carter.
Joining them will be sisters Hannah and Deborah Agboola and husband and wife duo Imran and Sukhvinder Javeed.
