Big Brother 2018 bosses are currently picking this year's housemates.

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 in the end held open auditions earlier this year to find new faces to enter the house.

Big Brother 2018 auditions closed in March and now bosses are holding callbacks in cities across the UK.

"Meanwhile, somewhere in the UK 👁 #bbuk," teased the official Big Brother Auditions Twitter account.

They also shared snaps of a mock Diary Room and Task Room, as potential housemates are selected for the summer cast.

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."

As yet, no details about this summer's show have been confirmed, with rumours it may not start until August.

It was recently rumoured that show bosses were planning on taking the series 'back to basics'.

The source explained that most recent series will see an end to "manipulative tasks" and allow drama to unfold "naturally".

They said: "Execs plan to restrict producers from 'over producing' and want to let the characters unfold naturally rather than forcing them to do so with manipulative tasks.

"There will be far fewer tasks this time around.

"They want it to be a true social experiment because they realise they have lost that element along the way."

Big Brother airs on Channel 5 this summer.
