12 celebrities are reportedly set for a "gruelling" three weeks in the new Celebrity Big Brother 2011 house, with bosses keen to make sure the luxury pad doesn't get the housemates too relaxed. Despite the new house including a huge swimming pool, gym and sauna, hidden annoyances are set to cause a stir.

According to the Daily Star Sunday, the new look house has "more cameras than ever", and with the show filming in HD for the first time, there's absolutely no where for the celebs to hide.

Then there's some 50 bright lights in the bedroom alone, shining directly into the eyes of the housemates.

And in the first "twist" of the new show, there are only 11 beds for the housemates, with 8 singles and 3 doubles, meaning at least two celebs are going to have to pair up for the first week!

Although bosses are hoping that a bathroom with transparent glass walls in the middle of the house will mean that the celebs will want to be spending time in each other's beds.

With stars including The Only Way Is Essex babe Amy Childs and American Pie actress Tara Reid lined up, it's not surprising.

Together with the sauna, there is also a heated chill out area and heated bathroom floor, all to make sure that the housemates never get cold even when the show is airing in November later this year.

Meanwhile the tabloid claims that the whole mood of the house can be changed by LED lights, fitted in chairs, the staircase, mirrors and counters.

And it’s not just the sauna that’s red-hot – the heated bathroom floor means housemates are likely to strip off even if they don’t plan to.

Celebrity Big Brother 2011 starts on August 18 on Channel 5.
