Celebrity Big Brother 2017 start date nears as Emma Willis and Rylan Clark-Neal pose behind the scenes


Celebrity Big Brother 2017 is nearing and hosts Emma Willis and Rylan Clark-Neal are already back at work.

Bit On The Side presenter Rylan, who is busy hosting ITV2's X Factor spin-off Xtra Factor right now, posted a snap alongside Emma to Twitter tonight.

He wrote: "Guess who's coming back soon......."

The new series of Celebrity Big Brother is expected to launch in the first weekend of January, although an exact start date won't be confirmed for a while yet.

There’s been quite a bit of speculation surrounding the upcoming series, with rumours of an 'All stars' twist.

Channel 5 have confirmed nothing as yet, but tabloid reports have suggested we could get back some familiar faces from past series.

There have been claims we might get a full ‘all stars’ series, perhaps with a ‘villains v heroes’ theme.

However other rumours say the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 cast could be a mix of ‘old stars and new stars’, with both returning housemates and first time celebrities entering the house.

Some of the possible returnees could include ex Strictly pro James Jordan, American couple Speidi - Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag - and model Jasmine Lennard.

A first announcement about what Big Brother bosses have planned will be made next month (December).
