Big Brother 2016 start date set for June, Celebrity Big Brother straight after

Big Brother 2016's start date is set for June this year, with no break before Celebrity Big Brother begins afterwards.

Last year saw Big Brother's earliest ever start with the show running from 12 May, but this year it's set to return to its usual time slot between June and August.

Naturally, no exact date has been set yet but some sources suggest we could potentially see one of the show's latest start dates with the series premiering towards the end of the month.

This year will also no longer see a break between Big Brother and the summer series of Celebrity Big Brother with the two shows airing pretty much back to back.

There will probably be a few days grace between them but not the six weeks that we saw in 2015.

The precise launch dates for Big Brother this summer will possibly depend on how construction goes for the new house extensions.

Bosses have been building two new structures for the show: A two-story addition to the house itself, along with a garden, and a new eviction studio.

The entire outdoor staging area will also be revamped with a new design currently in the works.

While work only began last month, the core buildings have already been erected with walls seen going up in our latest exclusive pictures.

Plans for the extension have yet to be revealed with rumours that could be a whole 'second house' or a new 'task arena'.

Last month, Bit On The Side's Rylan Clark teased that the house wasn't the only thing being revamped on Big Brother this year.

"It’s all change at Big Brother so it’ll be like starting a new job," he said. "We’ve been ready for a while for that, and I think the public have been ready for that, so I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s reactions on launch night."

He added: "This year, expect something very different.”
