Celebrity Big Brother 2014: Emma Willis wants Eamonn Holmes, Ruth Langsford in the house

Emma Willis (Big Brother)

Celebrity Big Brother 2014 host Emma Willis has revealed her personal choices for this year's line up.

With less than a week to go until launch, Emma has said she'd love to see Breakfast TV hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford in the house.

Emma explained: "I think they should be given whatever it takes to get them into the house. He’s such a wonderful man and the dynamic of their relationship would be brilliant to watch.

"People come up to me all the time and ask who’s going into the house, but this time around I just don’t know. I couldn’t say anyway, but I’ve been so busy I’ve not even read the rumours. "

Teasing the new series, which launches next Friday night, Emma continued: "Opulence seems to be the key word. I think it’s going to be luxurious and certainly different to this summer’s Big Brother which was all about upcycling. I think the celebrities are going to be spoilt rotten but messed with at the same time."

Speaking to the Daily Express newspaper, new host of The Voice Emma continued: "I’ve loved watching Big Brother from day one. I am intrigued by people and quite nosy, and I like to observe what’s going on.

"A lot of people are like that, whether they admit it or not. Watching a bunch of people interact leads to a lot of different scenarios which makes fascinating TV. Add in the celebrities and it’s even more addictive."

And Emma reckoned there was a clear different between the "fun" Celebrity series and the "game" that takes place in the summer.

"For me the celebrity one is fun, whereas the participants in Big Brother are playing for the prize money, so it’s a different kind of game," she told the tabloid this weekend. "The celebrities are being paid anyway so they might be there to pass the time and collect their pay cheque at the end or they could be there purely to have fun. Either way, I think it’s a bit more light-hearted."

The current rumoured Celebrity Big Brother line up includes model Katie Price, Apprentice star and This Morning big mouth Katie Hopkins and model India Reynolds.

More names set to the new series are said to be former Strictly star Nancy Dell’Olio, comedian Jim Davidson, boxer Evander Holyfield and Neighbours actor Alan Fletcher.

Celebrity Big Brother 2014 starts on January 3 on Channel 5 from 9PM.
