Celebrity Big Brother 2012 to launch with live nominations twist

Big Brother Channel 5

The new series of Celebrity Big Brother 2012 will launch with a live nominations twist later this month.

The Celebrity Big Brother start date has now been confirmed as August 15, airing from 9PM to 11PM.

It's the second series of the Celebrity version to air this year, an will run for just over three weeks.

30 minutes of live feed from the Celebrity Big Brother house will follow from 11PM, with Bit On The Side airing from 11:30PM.

However the show will back live again on Friday from 10PM on August 17, with a special twist show.

Billed as live nominations, it seems that the Celebrity Big Brother housemates will have just two days to get to know one another before being asked to nominate two others for the first eviction.

A similar twist took place at the start of Big Brother back in June, with the first housemate to enter, Deana, having to nominate live on the first night.

It resulted in Victoria being sent packing just three days after entering on launch night!
