Celebrity Big Brother 2017 All Stars! Start date, line up and everything else we know

What time does Celebrity Big Brother start tonight?


Celebrity Big Brother 2017 is coming and from the start date to the line up, here's all we know!

Channel 5 has confirmed we'll be able to sit down for the launch of the 19th series of Celebrity Big Brother in the first week of January, and this time there is a big twist.


When does Celebrity Big Brother 2017 start tonight?

Host Emma Willis will front the live launch of Celebrity Big Brother on Channel 5 TONIGHT Tuesday, January 3 at 9PM.

There Emma will introduce us to the new Celebrity Big Brother line up, made up of the returning housemates and new faces.


Then from 11:05PM, Rylan Clark-Neal will be back to host Bit On The Side while at midnight there will be live streaming from the house as the celebs settle in.

What's this All Stars v New stars thing?

Channel 5 has confirmed that the new series of the show will see a big new twist.


The line up of celebrities heading in will be made up of former Celebrity Big Brother contestants who have already appeared on the show.

But that's not all as they'll be joined by some brand new faces as well, entering the Big Brother house for the first time.

So who's on the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 line up?

Channel 5 aren't confirming any names before launch night, but there have been plenty of rumours.

New stars linked to the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 cast include footballer Jamie O'Hara, X Factor singer Sam Callahan, Angie Best, actor James Cosmo, musician Ray J, reality TV regular Bianca Gascoigne, 90s DJ Brandon Block and singer Stacy Francis.

Meanwhile, past 'all star' housemates who could be returning include Austin Armacost, Coleen Nolan, James Jordan, Calum Best, Nicola McLean, American couple Speidi - Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag - and Jasmine Waltz.

However a number of celebs have said they're definitely NOT taking part, including Angelique 'Frenchy' Morgan, Katie Price, Perez Hilton, Stephen Bear, Lee Ryan and X Factor's Honey G.

Is there a trailer?


In this first Celebrity Big Brother teaser we see hosts Emma and Rylan in a bright and colourful art pop themed video, as they vow to change a dark, cold and wet January.


The clip also features famous BB narrator Marcus Bentley who declares "Pop Goes January... All Stars... News stars"

Will there be live streaming?

Live streaming will air on Channel 5 from the launch night at midnight, but only for an hour.

There are seemingly no plans to bring back a 24/7 live feed either on the TV or online. Furthermore, the nightly live stream on 5Star has also been dropped.

How long will Celebrity Big Brother air for?

Rumour has it that we could be in store for one of the longest series yet, with early schedule information suggesting 40 episodes planned.


However that information contradicts previous reports indicating that the show would only last 24 days, making it one of the shortest series to date.

In other words, no one really knows and it's very likely to depend on how well it does in the ratings.
