As always, we'll have all the latest from the Big Brother house this summer so make sure you're following us on Twitter @TellyMix and have liked us on Facebook.

Meanwhile, when it comes to the Big Brother start date a new look house will be ready for a the latest batch of housemates.

The BBUK bungalow has been given a brand new design and makeover since the last Celebrity series in January.

Bit On the Side's Rylan Clark-Neal cryptically teased the new look house: “There is something in the house I have been wanting for years, and it’s in there!”

Discussing the major revamp to the house, Rylan continued: “I was there not long ago and the house is SO different. When we did the second house last year, that was a massive change for us, but I’m totally just disregarding that for the moment because what we’ve done in the main house is absolutely unbelievable. It’s unreal.

“I got lost looking at it, and I go into that house every single day, I walk around the camera runs and look at the housemates...

"But when I was looking at the plans, I couldn’t even work out why that was there or here."

Big Brother will air nightly on Channel 5 from June 5.
