How long is this summer's Celebrity Big Brother?

Preliminary scheduling information suggests it could last for 35 days, making it the longest CBB EVER at more than four weeks.

However this is liable to change and the exact final date won't be known until well into the series.

Who are the Celebrity Big Brother 2016 housemates?

Nothing is confirmed yet but most recent reports have revealed a leaked Celebrity Big Brother 2016 line up of 17 celebs.

They include Frankie Grande, Ariana Grande’s younger-half brother, Geordie Shore's Marnie Simpson, TOWIE's Lewis Bloor and Beth Chapman, American reality star and wife of 'Dog The Bounty Hunter' Duane Chapman.

Also in the mix are Ex On The Beach's Stephen Bear, panto favourite Christopher Biggins, X Factor's Katie Waissel, businessman and Anthea Turner's ex husband Grant Bovey, Page 3 pin up Samantha Fox and US singer and reality star Aubrey O’Day.

Joining them could be Absolutely Fabulous' Helen Lederer, star of Mob Wives Renee Graziano, X Factor reject turned model Chloe Khan (Chloe Mafia), EastEnder Ricky Norwood and radio host James Whale.

Rounding things off are Saira Khan, The Apprentice candidate turned Loose Women panelist, plus Storage Hunters UK regular Colin Newell aka Heavy D.

Will the house change?

Apparently so. Channel 5 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!
