The date when Celebrity Big Brother 2014 starts on TV has been confirmed by Channel 5 this afternoon.

Celebrity Big Brother 2014 begins on MONDAY, August 18 on Channel 5 from 9PM.

Rylan Clark will host Celebrity Bit On The Side from 11.05pm before launch night concludes with an hour with live streaming (yes, you read that right) from midnight.

The new celebrity series will follow almost straight after the final of Big Brother 2014, with just a three day rest between the two shows.

The current BBUK show will end at 9PM on August 15.

The new series of CBB is set to see quite a mixed cast... and some of the more usual types of 'celebrity' housemates.

A number of stars have been repeatedly linked to the show, including Gladiator star Tornado – real name David McIntosh – and MisFits’ Lauren Socha.

There’s also set to be yet another TOWIE star in the form of Lauren Goodger and another writer with Julie Burchill having reportedly been offered a £300,000 deal.

Also rumoured are Gogglebox’s George Gilbey, Hollywood star Gary Busey, The Hills turned Made In Chelsea cast member Stephanie Pratt and most recently, Corrie actor Michael Le Vell.

They're all set to enter the same Power themed house when the show starts, running for just over three weeks until September.
