The Celebrity Big Brother cast for 2018's first ever American series has been unveiled.

CBS, who currently air the 'normal' version of the show in the States, announced the line up for the premiere US show last week ahead of tonight's TV premiere.


Although Celebrity Big Brother has been going here in the UK for almost 20 years, it's never made it across the pond - until now.

"'Big Brother' has been dominating pop culture throughout its 19 seasons, and it is exciting to grow the franchise with the first-ever celebrity edition in the US," executive producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan said.

They added: "Celebrities will be under the watchful eye of the Big Brother cameras, facing the classic game elements, and of course new twists in this special winter event."
