When does Celebrity Big Bother 2016 start?

Celebrity Big Brother - Summer 2016

The Celebrity Big Brother 2016 start has been confirmed today for Thursday, 28th July.

The new series of CBB will be back on TV from 9PM with a live show hosted by Emma Willis.

The two hour launch will be followed by Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side at 11PM, hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal.

As it stands, early schedule information suggests the series will last for 35 days which would make it the longest ever CBB however this is liable to change.

The Celebrity Big Brother will come just ONE DAY after the Big Brother 2016 final which itself has been confirmed today for Tuesday, July 26th.

While the new series of Celebrity Big Brother kicks off later this month, Channel 5 say the line up of celebrities is being kept "top secret".

However that hasn't stopped the usual lot rumours have revealed a number of names supposedly signed up.

Recent reports have linked the likes of rapper Lil' Kim to the show, supposedly scooping the series' biggest fee ever.

Other rumoured celebrity housemates right now include radio presenter Lizzie Cundy, Absolutely Fabulous star Helen Lederer and Ex On The Beach's Ashleigh Defty.

More 'celebs' tipped to be a part of the cast are Gogglebox's Chris Steed and Stephen Webb, model Samantha Fox and a trio of former X Factor acts: Chloe Mafia, Lauren Murray and Katie Waissel, although it's likely only one if any would enter.

Even more names from the VERY female dominated rumour mill include TOWIE's Jessica Wright, Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding, Union J singer Jaymi Hensley, actress Helen Flanagan and American Mob Wives star Renee Graziano.

Last week saw Channel 5 announce the very first details about this summer's Celebrity series, including unveiling the new look CBB eye logo.

They say that the BB House will be given a glamorous make-over for the brand new celebrity Housemates, but they shouldn’t make themselves too much at home, because despite the shiny new look of the house they must remember, all that glitters is not gold!
