Big Brother 2015 housemates to be revealed before launch night

The Big Brother 2015 housemates will be unveiled before launch night this year in a Big Brother first.

Channel 5 has today announced that for the first time ever in Big Brother history, the new Housemates will officially be revealed before the Live Launch show.

And it'll follow a two day The Big Brother: Timebomb themed countdown, commencing at 00:01am on Friday 8th May on Big Brother's official Twitter feed @BBUK and on the official Big Brother website.

Once the countdown hits zero at 00:01am on Sunday 10th May all of this year's new housemates will officially be revealed online.

The move will allow us viewers two days to get to know this year's cast before they enter the house in Tuesday night's live launch show.

And from the moment the new Housemates walk through those doors they'll enter the world of Big Brother: Timebomb.

Speaking about this year's BBUK housemates recently, Bit on The Side's Rylan Clark teased: "We've got young, middle aged and older - and although we've got the typical stereotypes, they don't fit the bracket they're in. So, for example, a young, pretty girl might not be what she seems."

And he's admitted: "You might have seen a couple of the contestants if you really dug for them."

Big Brother: Timebomb Live Launch, Tuesday 12th May at 9pm on Channel 5.
