Big Brother 2017: Rylan Clark-Neal teases some big changes

Big Brother 2016

The new series of Big Brother UK is on its way to Channel 5 and it's set to be all change.

The upcoming 'civilian' run is launching in the summer and Bit On The Side's Rylan Clark-Neal has bee busy hyping it up already.

He wasn't giving many - okay, any - specifics away, but Rylan promised a completely new look house.

And he also remarked: "What I will tell you is don't believe everything you read. Every year, there is always so much gossip, but I'm the only one who really knows what's going on."

Although speaking to DigitalSpy, Rylan then added: "Well, actually, sometimes I read things in the papers and think 'that's definitely not happening', but then it does. I guess even I find things out through the press."

There's been talk of a 'pairs' twist but Rylan would only say: “I can say that we were looking for pairs but I can’t say any more than that. Whether that means there’s only going to be pairs, or there’s going to be singles, I’ve got no idea. I mean I have, but I’m not telling you.”

Meanwhile, this year's BBUK launch could be delayed due to the General Election next month.

A surprise snap election was confirmed for Thursday June 8 last month, potentially in the week in which the new series of BBUk would've launched.

As it happens, the only series not to kick off in June was also delayed by the previous General Election in 2015.

The Timebomb run had been due to begin at the start of May but was pushed back a couple of weeks due to the May 7 election.
