This year Big Brother will feature two whole houses each with their own group of contestants.

There is the main, current house which will be home to housemates as usual.

Then there is a brand new second house where 'The Others' will reside...

So who are 'The Others?'

No one knows yet and Big Brother aren't giving anything away. What we know however is that the housemates should be on the look out with the mysterious group being described as "dangerous".

Channel 5 say that 'The Others' will be plotting against the housemates in the main house but the exact game play has yet to be explained.

Do we know any of the Big Brother 2016 housemates?

Officially, no.

But there have been various rumours including former X Factor's Katie Waissel, dominatrix Natalie Rowe, a model called Laura Carter, Connor Hunter, who appeared on MTV's Ex On The Beach, X Factor reject Ryan Ruckledge, who was kicked out by the judge at last year's bootcamp and model Celia Kay, who reportedly had a fling with a footballer.

Also tipped to take part are the so-called 'Selfie Sisters' made up of Lucie, Sophie and Stacie together with Vicky Pattison's rumoured boyfriend and Judge Geordie co-star Alex Cannon.

What's the prize money this year?

£100,000 is up for grabs at the start but as we've seen in past years this could well go up or down by the time we reach the final!
