When does Big Brother start? BBUK 2014 launch date set for first week of June


The first details about when Big Brother 2014 starts have been revealed today.

While Channel 5 have not yet confirmed the exact launch date, they have announced that the show will launch in the first week of June.

The likely launch date is either Thursday June 5 or Friday June 6, although it's possible that BOTH may host a split launch similar to last year.

The new series of BBUK is set to see quite the twist of the upcoming run being named 'Big Brother: Power Trip'.

Says Channel 5: "This year Big Brother is offering housemates the ultimate prize…Power! Whoever has the power will be able to influence, twist and control events in the house like never before in Big Brother: Power Trip.

"Big Brother: Power Trip will initiate on launch night with Emma Willis and it will dominate the house for the summer. Housemates will have to be ruthless to seize power, keep it and impose their will on the rest of the house.

"The housemates aren’t the only ones – viewers will also be given the power to manipulate housemates throughout the series."
