The Big Brother 2016 start date has been confirmed for Tuesday, June 7.

The seventeenth series of the Channel 5 show will kick off its live launch from 9PM, with this year's show set to be the biggest ever.

The BBUK live launch will air for two hours minutes with Emma Willis at the helm.

Bit On The Side, hosted by by Rylan Clark-Neal, will follow from 11PM with an hour special.

Launch night will then conclude with a an hour's live feed straight from the house until 1AM.

The bumper set of live shows is set to pave the way for Big Brother's biggest twist yet with Channel 5 teasing that the game is changing.

It was confirmed Wednesday evening that Big Brother UK this year will have TWO separate houses with opposing groups in each.

Only the housemates in the current, main house will be in the chance of winning this year's £100,000 prize fund.

Just metres away, in a brand new second house, are 'the others'. They'll be spending their time conspiring to target and take down the housemates as they attempt to steal their place in the Big Brother House, securing a chance of winning this year's prize.

But this is Big Brother and nothing 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?
