Big Brother 2017 has reached its halfway point, host Emma Willis has confirmed.

As we approach the end of the fourth week, host Emma has revealed we're now halfway through the series.

Speaking in a Facebook Live Q&A, she said: "I feel like we've been on air longer than that because so much as happened. I feel like everything's fallen into place."

Based on Emma's comments it would appear the current series will run for around 50 days, just like last summer's show.

That would make it the joint shortest ever with 2016's run, although no final date has been confirmed yet and it could of course all change.

The halfway point was marked last night with four sort-of new housemates.

Although it'll be their first time in the house, they're some familiar faces that have already popped up on the current series.

Andrew Cruickshanks, Simone Reed and Sue Evans were originally at the launch night where they faced a public vote to enter the house, but lost out to Tom who went on to become the People's Housemate.

The trio are joined by Sam Chaloner, who wasn't chosen to join the house by the current housemates last week in a twist. Instead they decided to pick Savannah and Isabelle.

The four piece will entered the show just after one of the current lot got the boot.

But there was a big twist.

The Second Chance Housemates entered the house and Big Brother explains to the house that because Andrew, Sam, Simone and Sue missed out on their first chance of becoming housemates, they are not eligible to win Big Brother.

However, these housemates have stolen £15,000 from the total prize fund. The Second Chance Housemate that lasts the longest in the competition will win this £15,000 prize. This week, Second Chance Housemates have great power in nominations, all four are able to nominate and all four will be immune from the next public vote.

Big Brother 2017 continues nightly on Channel 5.
