Celebrity Big Brother 2018 begins TONIGHT on Channel 5 and here's all the timings and shows you need to know about.

The main live launch show will air from 9PM on Channel 5 this evening as host Emma Willis introduces us to the new cast of celebrity housemates.

We'll finally out who on the rumoured Celebrity Big Brother line up will actually be entering and whether there are any new names in the mix.

Straight after the two-hour opener and Rylan Clark-Neal will take charge of the rowdy Bit On The Side audience from 11PM with all the latest news, gossip and exclusive clips from the house.

Unfortunately there's bad news for live feed fans with no streaming from the house following the launch this year.

The nightly highlights shows will then air across the week from 9PM with Bit On The Side and limited live streaming following on eviction nights.

This year's Celebrity Big Brother has a new 'Eye Of The Storm' theme.

Host Emma said of the celebrities heading into the house: "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."

Bit On The Side host Rylan Clark-Neal added: "What I have heard……is amazing. I’m really excited for this one. There’s a few rumours that I’m praying are true and a few I’m praying are false!"

Names on the rumoured Celebrity Big Brother cast include headline grabbing footballer Jermaine Pennant and Kieran Hayler, the estranged husband of former Celebrity Big Brother winner herself Katie Price.

More of the names rumoured are Hollywood actress Kirstie Alley, TOWIE's Dan Osbourne, Love Island's Gabby Allen, Corrie's Ryan Thomas and American porn actress Stormy Daniels, who is currently at the centre of controversy surrounding president Donald Trump.
