Celebrity Big Brother 2018 spoilers

Channel 5 has confirmed that this summer's Celebrity Big Brother, launching on the channel this month (August), will have the theme: ‘Eye of the Storm’.

They teased: "All of the celebrity names entering the house will have been caught up in their own media storm.

"And now, the celebrities are once again putting themselves in the public eye and this time they have a lot to prove."

The new look eye is currently teasing the series, featuring a neon light design surrounded by thunderous storm clouds.

Channel 5 says the new logo gives some clues as to what we can expect from this series; fireworks, fun and definitely a few storms!

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 line up

Celebrities linked to the Celebrity Big Brother cast this year include headline grabbing footballer Jermaine Pennant, Hollywood actress Kirstie Alley, So Macho hitmaker Sinitta, 'Human Ken Doll' Rodrigo Alves and American porn actress Stormy Daniels, who is currently at the centre of controversy surrounding president Donald Trump.

Yet more celebs widely tipped for the Celebrity Big Brother 2018 line up this summer include, TOWIE's Dan Osborne, Love Island's Gabby Allen, Corrie's Ryan Thomas.

Joining them could be Emmerdale star Roxanne Pallet, television psychic Sally Morgan and American TV personality Natalie Nunn who is best known for starring in US series Bad Girls Club.

Further potential celebrity housemates are Married At First Sight star Ben Jardine, Kidnapped model Chloe Ayling and rogue trader Nick Leeson, who spent years in prison after bringing down Barings Bank in the 1990s.

Host Emma teased of the line up: "When I heard a few of the names of the celebs coming on this year my jaw hit the floor! I think the theme is interesting because it is the eye of the storm so from what I believe we will see people who themselves have been in the eye of the storm be that either on the receiving or giving end.

"What will be really interesting is seeing the other side of the stories that we’ve not heard before."

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 start date

Channel 5 have now officially confirmed when Celebrity Big Brother will start tonight.

The new series will launch this evening, Thursday, August 16 at 9PM.
