Celebrity Big Brother 2013 will start with a "big twist", Channel 5 has teased.

It was confirmed yesterday that the new series of the show will kick off on August 22, Thursday night from 9PM on Channel 5 as a new batch of celebs enter the house.

And producers are planning to stir things up from the word go, with a second special live show the next day.

Celebrity Big Brother: The Big Twist Live will air from 9PM on Friday, August 23, hosted by Emma Willis, with the celebs having been in the house for less than 24 hours.

Details about the twist and what it may involve aren't yet available, although we've no doubt it'll be connected to the current theme of Secrets and Lies which has been played on throughout the current series of Big Brother.

The CBB launch will follow the final of the ongoing series of BB, which concludes on August 19.


Rumoured celebrities for this summer's Celebrity Big Brother include 5ive singer Abz, Outkast rapper Big Boi and Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown.
