Celebrity Big Brother has revealed a first nominations twist for this year's series.

The new series kicked off last Thursday and now less than a week in the housemates must turn against one another.


At the end of last night's show (Monday), a preview teased that housemates would be nominating for the first time on Tuesday night.

However, there was a twist with immunity up for grabs for one lucky housemate.

On launch night, Hollywood actress Kirstie Alley became Celebrity Big Brother's 'President' as the first celeb to enter the house. Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas was named as vice president in a viewer vote.

They had the power to grant a 'presidential pardon' to one housemate. Each housemate was able to visit the president and say why they deserve the pardon.

The chosen housemate was Jermaine Pennant. He will therefore be immune from nominations and therefore safe from eviction.

The rest of the housemates will be up for the house vote, with those that receive the most nominations facing the public poll.


Viewers will evict the first housemate in the next live show on Friday night.

Currently thirteen housemates are taking part in the series.

Alongside Kirstie and Ryan are Emmerdale actress Roxanne Pallett and headline grabbing footballer Jermaine Pennant.

Also in the house are model Chloe Ayling, The Only Way Is Essex star Dan Osborne and Gabby Allen, a Love Islander from Season 3 in 2017.

Joining the line up next are Comic, Radio and TV presenter Hardeep Singh Kohli, Married At First Sight star Ben Jardine, Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves and TV psychic Sally Morgan.

Rounding off the celebrity contestants are American reality TV personality Natalie Nunn and finally rogue trader Nick Leeson.

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.


The nominations will air in Tuesday's episode at 9PM. The live eviction takes place on Friday with Emma Willis.

Alongside the main show, Rylan Clark-Neal hosts Bit On The Side nightly.
