The date of the first Celebrity Big Brother 2018 eviction has been confirmed.

The live eviction will take place on Friday 12th January, live from 9PM with host Emma Willis.

However there will still be a live show this Tuesday, according to the latest schedules.

Running 90 minutes from 9PM, Emma will be on hand to presumably drop a live twist on the housemates.

What exactly Big Brother has planned has yet to be revealed but we know that this week the women are in charge.

They will be the only ones to nominate and decide who faces the first public vote.

Friday's live show eight male celebrities join the CBB house, which had been women only since launch night.

They included footballer John Barnes, RuPaul's Drag Race star Courtney Act - aka Shane Jenek, Love Island's Jonny Mitchell, Boyzone singer Shane Lynch and comedian Daniel O'Reilly (aka Dapper Laughs).

Rounding off the male celebrities were US R&B star Ginuwine, The Apprentice candidate Andrew Brady and British ballet dancer Wayne Sleep.

In tonight's show the men will face an immunity challenge to save themselves from eviction. The winner of the task will join the four women currently immune from eviction.

The ladies took part in a series of tasks over the past week to secure their own places in the house. Actress Amanda Barrie, Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Malika Haqq, former Detective Constable Maggie Oliver and Ex On The Beach star Jess Impiazzi all won immunity.

The other women - former MP Ann Widdecombe, Boris Johnson's sister Rachel Johnson, Made In Chelsea's Ashley James and newsreader India Willoughby - are in danger of facing eviction alongside the men who don't win immunity.

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 airs tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
