And it's been confirmed now that the brand new series will begin on Tuesday, June 7, with the launch scheduled for 9PM with host Emma Willis.

Straight after the marathon opener, Rylan Clark-Neal will front Bit On The Side from 11:05PM which will be followed by live streaming.

This year it's all change for Big Brother with the new series evolving the show for a new generation.

As well as a game changing twists to the format, the BBUK house is set to undergo a MAJOR overhaul this year with the biggest changes to the show in its 15 year history.

A brand new, two story house extension is currently being constructed which will provide lots of room of the new housemates.

The existing house is also undergoing a bit makeover, while work is progressing on a brand new staging area outdoors and eviction studio for host Emma Willis as well.


Big Brother is set to air until around August time with Celebrity Big Brother following.

It was reported earlier this year that there will no longer be 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 the two, but not the six weeks that we saw in 2015.
