Big Brother 2016's big new twist is set to prove "controversial"

Big Brother 2016

The new Big Brother could prove to be "controversial", it's been claimed.

Ahead of tonight's launch, Bit On The Side's Rylan Clark-Neal suggested that the show would end up in the news.

Rylan previously said that BB was going to be "evil" this summer as TWO houses with competing contestants go head to head.

In the main house are the housemates as usual while in the brand new second house are a dark and ominous force named 'The Others', who pose a danger.

However both groups are under Big Brother's ultimate control and neither side knows about connections between them.

Exactly how the new look BBUK will work hasn't been explained yet but Rylan revealed: "We're back and it's brand new, it's a bit worrying if I'm being honest.

"It's a new Big Brother, it's like starting a new job for me and Emma... you could say it's back to the drawing board."

Rylan went on to tease: "We're going to end up on the news, which is a worry, it's going to get a whole lot more controversial!

"I wish I could tell you [more] but let me tell you that."

Last week Rylan claimed that controversy would also come from the new housemates

"I haven't met them but I have seen them," he said of the line up. "Some years we don't get it right but this year it's completely right, it's going to be amazing."

He told fans: "Expect controversy, it wouldn't surprise me."

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

Big Brother 2016 starts TONIGHT, June 7 at 9PM on Channel 5.
