Big Brother 2016: EVERYTHING you need to know about the 'brand new game'

Big Brother 2016

Big Brother 2016 is coming but expect a brand new game on Channel 5 this summer.

When does Big Brother 2016 start?

Channel 5 has confirmed the Big Brother 2016 start date as Tuesday, June 7.

There will be a two hour, 5 minute launch from 9PM followed by Bit On The Side for an hour and then live streaming from the house.

Emma Wills and Rylan Clark-Neal are back in charge

There's no changes with the hosts! Emma Willis returns to front the main show on Channel 5 while Rylan Clark-Neal will be back hosting Bit On The Side every week night straight after the main show.

This year, there are TWO houses

Yup, two completely separate houses. The old, main house will be home to the Big Brother housemates and in the second will be 'the others'.

The others, described as a "dark and ominous force" will be conspiring to target and and steal a place in the main house in order to be in with a chance of winning this year's £100,000 prize fund.

However just how this new game play will all work has yet to be revealed.

But not all is as it seems

Unknown to both the housemates and the others, there are existing connections between them.

These connections could turn both houses upside down. But what are these connections and how will Big Brother use them to keep everyone on their toes?

Big Brother won't the be same again

The game is changing, say Channel 5, with the new series evolving Big Brother for a new generation.

The housemates have no idea what they're in for and neither do us viewers right now!

Meanwhile, the house has had major new makeover

Quite literally everything is changing, including the famous house. It's got a brand new look with dark black and grey walls interspersed by shards of colour and neon lights - see the pictures HERE!

And there's also a brand new set

Emma Willis will be fronting this year's series from the comfort of a brand new outdoor stage and indoors eviction studio - and this one can be used in the typical rainy British summer!
