They added: "Celebrities will be under the watchful eye of the Big Brother cameras, facing the classic game elements, and of course new twists in this special winter event."

The first series of CBB in the States was won by Broadway star Marissa Jaret Winokur.

Now a line up of contestants who will be houseguests for Season 2 have been revealed.
