The Celebrity Big Brother 2017 housemates were given secret codenames ahead of the launch.

In a bid to stop their identities leaking (ahem), each housemate had been given a food-based code name.


The code was used by producers to refer to them and to book them into hotels so no one knows who they really are.

The code names included Shredded Wheat, Haagen-Daz, Sour Patch Kid, Juicy Fruit and Papa Johns.

However despite all the code names, it appeared they were cracked as in the end we knew all about those entering the house last night.

Celebs on the line up are singer of Girls Aloud fame and one-time Coronation Street actress, Sarah Harding and Amelia Lily, who made The X Factor final in 2011 and has since become a West End performer.

Joining them are Gogglebox star Sandi Bogle, TV psychic Derek Acorah and Helen Lederer, comedian and actress best known for her role in Absolutely Fabulous.

More confirmed celebrity housemates are Ex EastEnders actor Shaun Williamson, Former Hollyoaks actor and original Celebrity Love Island contestant Paul Danan, Ex On The Beach star Jemma Lucy and Sam Thompson, Made In Chelsea cast member.

Plus rumoured are American YouTuber Trisha Paytas, reality star Jordan Davies and recent candidate on The Apprentice, Karthik Nagesan .


Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
