Celebrity Big Brother Queen Emma Willis offers an alternative Christmas message


Celebrity Big Brother's Emma Willis has offered up an alternative Christmas message this evening.

The Queen of Big Brother appeared in a video on the official Big Brother website, teasing the upcoming series of Celebrity Big Brother which starts next month.

For what will be the nineteenth series there's something special planned with a brand new twist to the series seeing past celebrity housemates returning.

But it's not just an All Stars series with some first timers also in the mix for what is being touted as 'All Stars v New Stars'.

"In a change to billed programming, #CBB royalty @EmmaWillis delivers her thoughts on the year that has been in the Big Brother House...," the official Big Brother account tweeted today with Emma's Big Brother Christmas message.

"2016 was a year of romances, bromances and showmances," says Emma in the video. "I look forward to welcoming a Celebrity Big Brother in 2017 that's positive and that reacquaints us with old housemates...

"And brings us some brand new shining ones.

"I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and Happy New Year.

"We'll see you for Celebrity Big Brother in January."

Channel 5 say they won't be confirming any names for the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 line up until launch night on Tuesday, January 3.

But new stars rumoured for the cast include X Factor singer Sam Callahan, Love Island's Olivia Buckland, Shameless actor Jody Latham, The Apprentice's Jessica Cunningham, reality TV regular Bianca Gascoigne and snooker ace Ronnie O'Sullivan.

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

However for now we can only speculate!

The official line up of housemates will be revealed only on Celebrity Big Brother's live launch night which has been confirmed for Tuesday, January 3 at 9PM on Channel 5.
