Big Brother 2017: It's the final countdown! One week to go!

Big Brother 2018

Big Brother 2017 is coming soon and today marks just ONE WEEK until the live launch.

Emma Willis will be back in charge of the Channel 5 series as it kicks off its eighteenth run next Monday night, June 5, from 8:30PM.

Channel 5 has promised the new series will be "the ultimate social experiment" when it launches next month.

Describing Big Brother 18 as a "must-watch culture clash of modern Britain," the channel teased: "At a time of political upheaval and tough questions about unity in the UK, Big Brother brings you an alternative look at Britain."

They continued: "Standby for a very British summer of contrasts, conflicts and collaboration...and more fireworks than you could imagine, as a selection of people, from a range of backgrounds, come together in the ultimate social experiment.

"The United Kingdom of Big Brother…and everyone is welcome."

Meanwhile, the Big Brother house has been given a village makeover.

"The BBUK house this series is one of Britain's best kept villages," Bit On The Side's Rylan Clark-Neal spilled previously. "We've got cottages, shops... it's very different, it's the most different I've seen it."

Rylan went on to tease cryptically: "But is everything as it seems?

"We promise to reflect all aspects of Britain..."

Alongside Emma on the main show, Rylan will return with Bit On the Side each weeknight on Channel 5. As always, Joining him will be a variety of celebrity panellists, talking heads and an audience of BB fans to debate hot topics, reveal exclusives and go behind the scenes of the main show.

Big Brother kicks off next week on Channel 5.
