Big Brother 2018 auditions: Apply to be a housemate this summer now

Celebrity Big Brother

Auditions for Big Brother 2018's upcoming series close TODAY, Monday March 19.

It could well be Big Brother's last EVER run this summer, with Channel 5 yet to confirm if the show will return beyond 2018.

Auditions for the upcoming series had taken a while to be announced, which had prompted speculation we'd see an 'All Star' run.

But bosses have confirmed online auditions will be held to find new faces to enter the house.

They'll take part in a brand new summer series, which typically begins around June.

Audition information tells prospective housemates that they must be 18 by 31 July 2018.

Paul Osborne, new creative director for Big Brother UK, said: "Following the buzz around Celebrity Big Brother: Year of the Woman in January we are looking for stand out personalities who may be inspirational to our viewers, who have something to talk about and who will spark discussion both inside and outside of the House.

"We are searching all over the UK and Ireland for the best Housemates leaving no stone unturned."

Big Brother 2018 auditions close 8.40 pm on March 19.

The maximum 2 minute second clip should end with you completing the sentence "I would make a perfect housemate because..."

You need to be over 18 by July 31 2018 and have the right to reside in the UK, but other than that there's no restrictions or any rules on what your video should include but be sure to make yourself stand out.
