Celebrity Big Brother 2016: Summer series set to be the longest EVER

The current Celebrity Big Brother 2016 summer series is on course to be the longest ever.

A total set of 15 housemates entered the house last night and could be in there until September.

Chatting on their first night, some of the celebs let slip that their contracts are for up to 35 days.

If the show does last that long then it'd be the longest EVER Celebrity Big Brother series: Three days more than the previous record set in January and 6 days longer than the next longest summer run.

However the potentially lengthy CBB follows the shortest EVER Big Brother which ended after just 50 days.

Host Emma Willis denied ahead of the final on Tuesday that it had been cut short.

She said: Let's clear this up, loads of people on social media are saying 'Oh my God, they're cutting the series short.'

"We have NOT cut the series short! The series was never meant to be any longer than this, this is what it was scheduled for.

"That's that cleared up, this is how long we were meant to be on air."

Whether or not Celebrity Big Brother does last for the full 35 days - which would mean a final on September 1 - remains to be seen.

For now, the first highlights air tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
