Big Brother 2016: The Others and Housemates to merge this SUNDAY!

Big Brother 2016

The Others and The Housemates will be together on Big Brother 2016 by the end of the weekend, it's been revealed.

On launch, 12 housemates entered the the main house while, unknown to them at the time, six others entered a new 'Other' house.

Since then there have been a few switches between the two halves and while The Housemates have known about the presence of The Others they didn't know all of their identities until tonight.

While the main house were aware of Ryan, as well as ex-Housemates Alex, Jackson and Chelsea, the rest were unknowns.

In a live twist this evening. Big Brother unveiled the identities of the remaining Others as the Housemates met Charlie, Natalie, Jayne and Hughie.

As Jason reacted to seeing his ex, Big Brother delivered further news for both the Housemates and the Others.

Big Brother told both sides that they would be going to WAR over the next 48 hours, competing for a very special power.

Big Brother explained that with victory would come great power as the winning side would be in full control of the next round of nominations ahead of next Friday night's live eviction.

Furthermore, Emma Willis confirmed that on Sunday night The Others would move into the Main House and become Housemates as - for the first time this series - the two groups become one.

But what does it all mean for the Other house?
