The folks at Channel 5 have revealed the start date for the next series of Celebrity Big Brother. It will begin on Tuesday, January 2 at 9pm. Just the entertainment we need for the post-Christmas blues.

Emma Willis shared the news on Twitter yesterday evening.

We found out on Monday that there will be a very surprising twist to this year’s lineup. Bosses have confirmed that the lineup for next year’s show is going to be made up of all women.

In a statement they said:

“In January 2018, as the nation marks 100 years since women won the right to vote for the very first time, Celebrity Big Brother launches this series with an all-female cast of celebrity housemates in a salute to a centenary of women’s suffrage on Channel 5.

“Presented by Emma Willis, Celebrity Big Brother will initially explore how the all-female housemates interact, from politicians to performing artists, as they enter the house first, ahead of the celebrity male housemates.”
