Celebrity Big Brother 2013: One week to go!

Emma and Brian (Celebrity Big Brother 2013)

There's just one week to go now until Celebrity Big Brother 2013 kicks off, and here's what we know so far...

Twelve celebrities are expected to enter on launch night, with Neighbours’ Ryan Moloney, Corrie’s Sam Robertson, and Tricia Penrose from Heartbeat among what's looking like a soap star filled cast.

Also linked to the upcoming show is comic Jim Davidson and singer Meat Loaf, who has revealed details of a new UK Arena tour shortly after the show is due to end.

X Factor’s Rylan Clark has apparently been offered £250,000 to take part, although the show may clash with The X Factor’s live tour in the new year.

Steps singer Claire Richards, The Hills stars Spencer Pratt & Heidi Montag and model Lacey Banghard have all also been rumoured.

However both Justin Lee Collins and Katie Price have recently denied claims they’re due to enter the house when the series starts next month.

Meanwhile, it’s been claimed that bosses have given the new house an ‘ice’ theme, complete with an igloo in the garden.

A source told the Daily Star: “This is a first for us. We’ve never had an igloo before.

“If a couple of celebrities get steamy in there, they just might melt the ice.”

The newspaper reports that the kitchen will have a “Scandinavian feel” while the garden will be a luxury get away for the group with a hot tub and a swimming pool.

45 cameras will be filming every inch of every room as always, with all the highlights on Channel 5 every night.
