Celebrity Big Brother 2018 is coming but just when does it start on TV again?

The new series is confirmed to be starting in January on Channel 5.

Channel 5 have said the start date will be in the first week of the year and its now confirmed for Tuesday, January 2nd 2018.

The CBB air date will start from 9PM, running for 90 minutes. The first Bit On The Side airs from 11:30PM.

As usual, the show will then continue nightly on Channel 5 for around a month.

This week saw Channel 5 announce a brand new Celebrity Big Brother series for next month, which will have a 'women first' twist.

The series will begin with an all female cast with male celebrities joining later.

And it'll be a battle of the sexes that Channel 5 say will "challenge stereotypes".

The twist will mark 100 years since women won the right to vote for the very first time.

Presented by Emma Willis, Celebrity Big Brother will initially explore how the all-female housemates interact, from politicians to performing artists, as they enter the house together.

When the male celebrities join, the housemates will take part in a series of entertaining tasks and hidden experiments.

Channel 5 said: "These will test their - and our - assumptions, challenge gender stereotypes and reveal fascinating truths about what it is to be a woman - and man - in the 21st century.

"See what happens when women hold the power, as Celebrity Big Brother January 2018 is set to be celebratory, surprising and insightful."

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 starts in January on Channel 5 alongside spin-off show Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On the Side which returns weeknights with Rylan Clark-Neal.
