There’s just one week to go now until Big Brother 2016 kicks off, and here’s what we know so far...

Today hosts Emma Willis and Rylan Clark-Neal revealed some teasers about the new look series.

And it sounds as though it's pretty much ALL change this year.

"I'm so excited for the brand new series, more so than I ever have been before," said Rylan. "It's like starting a whole new job, this year.

"Without giving it away, we've got a whole new concept and I'm really excited to see how it works with the Housemates.

"It's time for a shake-up, and it's a shake- up that they won't see coming. It's almost a brand new game."

Rylan, who will be back fronting Bit On The Side every week night, added: "This series, when I say this is like starting a brand new job, I genuinely mean it. It's like the first day at school.

"I want people to know that the game is changing this year. I love the show. I'm a fan more than a presenter."

Meanwhile, main show host Emma Willis revealed there would be "game changing twists".

"As a massive Big Brother fan that really makes me feel excited for what’s about to come," she enthused.

It's not just the game play that's changing with a brand new look house which includes a massive extension.

The revamped set marks the biggest changes to Big Brother's house in over a decade.

"I've heard a bit of gossip that the house has been completely changed and it’s not just a redecoration job, so I cannot wait to get my hands on the keys and have a good snoop around!" Emma said.

Rylan meanwhile divulged: "The House is predominantly black and white, but as we know, nothing on Big Brother is ever black and white, and I think that's going to be the real theme throughout the series.

"I've seen the drawings and I've spoken to the designers and the House is looking amazing. It's probably going to be one of my favourite ever series, in terms of how it looks."

Big Brother UK starts at 9PM on Tuesday, June 7 on Channel 5.
