Latest Celebrity Big Brother 2017 news and gossip

cbb launch

Celebrity Big Brother has begun and here is your first morning update from the new series.

Last night's live launch saw the summer Celebrity Big Brother cast confirmed and there were no real surprises.

The leaked line up proved to be completely accurate from the likes of ex EastEnders actor Shaun Williamson, Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding and Absolutely Fabulous star Helen Lederer to Ibiza Weekender star Jordan Davies and American YouTuber Trisha Paytas.

As usual there was a launch night twist as Barry from Eastenders aka Shaun was given an earpiece but it all went a rather badly wrong. Either unable to hear or simply choosing to ignore Big Brother's instructions, Shaun ended up failing the task.

It meant there was no eviction immunity for him and he did faced the tough task of nominating another housemate for the first eviction, picking Mob Wives' star Marissa Jade.

Meanwhile, the housemates got to bond as along with us viewers they tried to figure out exactly who everyone was.

American YouTuber Trisha Paytas seemed particularly clueless, asking Sandi Bogle to give her a rundown of who the most and least famous housemates were.

Later in the garden, the guys eyed up the girls with Jordan Davies confessing to a surprise crush, before they vowed to stick together and not fight. We give it a few days...

And elsewhere in the first night, housemates speculated that there could be more of them on the way with three spare spaces to fill on the housemate wall.

Finally, don't forget to vote for your VERY early summer Celebrity Big Brother favourite in our first poll of the series here!

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 continues nightly for the next month.

Tonight's first highlights show airs at 9PM on Channel 5.
