Big Brother 2016 housemates to be the most mixed bunch yet

The new Big Brother 2016 housemates are set to be most varied yet with an "electric" mix.

Bit on The Side's Rylan Clark-Neal has also teased fans that we could see some 'familiar faces' but refused to say any more.

There have been rumours that year's 'civilian' BBUK would include celebrities playing against the main housemates as part of the big two houses twist.

Teasing the housemate line up in a Facebook Live Q&A, Rylan said: "I haven't met them but I have seen them.

"Some years we don't get it right but this year it's completely right, it's going to be amazing."

And he told viewers: "Expect controversy, it wouldn't surprise me."

Rylan continued: "This year is probably the most mixed we've had in a long while, different races, gender, sexuality, age..."

Speaking about 'The Others', the mysterious group of contestants who will take up residence in the new second house, Rylan warned: "Watch out for The Others, The Others are coming and it's not what you think.

"They're dangerous, that's all I'm going to say. DANGER!"

He went on to reveal: "There might be a few familiar faces in there, you never know."

There have been a number of rumoured Big Brother 2016 housemates but the official line up won't be confirmed until they step inside this evening.

But what we do know is that the housemates in both the main house and new second home will be connected in ways that even they aren't aware off...

Big Brother 2016 launches LIVE on tonight, June 7 at 9PM on Channel 5.
