Get ready people: Big Brother 2016 is coming VERY soon with the start date now confirmed.

There are less than TWO WEEKS to go until launch night with the brand new series beginning on Tuesday June 7th at 9PM.

The launch with Emma Willis will air for two hours until 11PM before being followed by Bit On The Side with Rylan Clark-Neal straight after.

And in good news for uber fans, live feed will return from midnight.

Promotion for the upcoming run has begun to ramp up last week with Channel 5 teasing today that the "game is changing."

What will be the seventeenth series of Big Brother UK is expected to be very different from everything we've seen before.

Channel 5 has revealed a few teasers from the new series with some titbits about what we could expect.

They explained cryptically: "From Day One the Housemates will be under attack from an unseen ominous dark force that will have a dramatic and divisive effect on the House."

The housemates who enter on launch next next month will have no clue what's in store.

"Whilst things may appear to be straight forward Big Brother will ensure that no-one will have the entire picture," Channel 5 say. "The Housemates are not alone and they should be prepared for paranoia and suspicion."

The newly revamped Big Brother house - which has recently seen an extension built - is expected to be unveiled in the coming days
