The new Celebrity Big Brother 2011 house will feature a sauna for the first time in five years, it has been claimed. With the new series starting later this year - with the end of the 'normal' series in mid-November - bosses hope the sauna will keep the temperatures high through the winter.
A Big Brother insider told the Daily Star Sunday earlier today: “This will make for must-see TV. Everyone will want to see the famous faces sweating it out.
“Sexy girls and hunky lads will thrill viewers when they flash some flesh. And there’s a good chance it could even lead to a romance if things get really hot.”
This year's house - tipped to be the biggest ever - will also feature a large swimming pool.
"Everyone will be pleased to have a pool as usual," the source said. "But the weather this summer has been so terrible there’s a good chance celebs will avoid the water if the climate stays wet and cold.
"Because the series is starting later this year and running through the autumn, bosses knew they needed a back-up plan to make sure there would be a chance for the girls to show off their bikinis.
"The sauna will make Big Brother weather-proof, which means we’re in for a good series."
The news comes as we reveal how sexy Playboy model and BBC Three telly star Jessica-Jane Clement is set to star as one of this year's celebrity houses.
The saucy glamour model turned TV presenter is just one of many stars lined up for the new series on Channel 5, with TOWIE star Amy Childs and popstar Vanessa White also in the frame.
