It's not yet been revealed just how the extension will be used in the series but rumours have pointed to it becoming a whole separate house in its own right.

Reports over the past seven days have claimed that this year will see the living area 'split in two' as celebrity housemates and regular housemates live together as one.

It's been suggested that it could make for a hybrid series of Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother over the summer.

A source said: "We’re planning on really mixing up the regular series this time by chucking in a load of celebs too and splitting the house up.

"The producers have been approaching people from Gogglebox, TOWIE and Ex On The Beach and have some great names lined up."

A spokesperson for Channel 5 said they wouldn't be commenting on the rumours and speculation, which means we'll just have to wait and see what's being planned.

Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother will air on Channel 5 later this year.
