A first look at the Big Brother 2018 contestants has been revealed ahead of tonight’s launch.
In the Celebrity Big Brother final, host Emma Willis introduced a first teaser of the upcoming ‘civilian’ series.
She explained: “The housemates have been put into lock down so it means we’ve got the green light to show a first look at who is entering.”
Host Emma said that this year’s Big Brother would be ‘the most competitive ever’ and us viewers would have more influence over the house more than ever before.
A teaser posted by the official Big Brother Twitter account added: “One of the most important choices a housemate can make on launch night will have consequences.”
“Winning is everything. Only hr most competitive housemates will survive the first week,” they added in another clip.
Emma announced that the first twist would happen before launch, saying in the CBB final: “One of the new housemates will get an advantage in the game live on launch night, and you will choose who.”
Big Brother unveiled a series of clips of the housemates, featuring more cryptic VTs that you can watch above.
It revealed the housemates’ hometowns, jobs and ages alongside a quote from them but not their full identities.
Based purely on those first impressions, viewers were given the chance to hand one housemate an advantage in the game via a free online poll.
The public’s chosen housemate will be unveiled in tonight’s launch alongside what advantage they’ll have in the game.
After releasing the new Big Brother eye, Channel 5 teased recently: “‘Big Brother’ is ready with a bold new series of tasks and twists to challenge and surprise the housemates.”
Alongside the main show, Big Brother’s Bit on the Side returns weeknights with Rylan Clark-Neal. Joining him will be a variety of celebrity panellists, talking heads and an audience of BB fans to debate hot topics, reveal exclusives and go behind the scenes of the main show.
Scheduling information currently puts the series at 53 days long – one shorter than last year.
It all kicks off on Friday, September 14 at 9PM on Channel 5.
