Photos of the new ‘CBB’ house were posted online last month, showing that the living area and bedroom had been given a theatrical make-over, in keeping with the new series’ vaudeville theme.

It has now been revealed that the Diary Room will be no exception, with the chair - which is big enough to seat several housemates - resembling an old-school theatre seat, complete with a dramatic backdrop and sweeping velvet curtains.

The new chair is suitably theatrical

Describing the house’s vaudeville theme last month, presenter Emma Willis said: “The house will look theatrical and plush. And the garden is like an old Whitechapel street, Jack the Ripper style, which will be amazing. We're going to basically see an amazing period drama play out over the weeks.

“It's about testing how good they are as actors. Will their masks slip? There's always going to be a sinister side to any ‘Big Brother’ theme and I'm sure there was a sinister side to Vaudeville. So it's going to be ‘Big Brother’ being naughty and messing with them.”

The Diary Room is one of the integral parts of ‘CBB’, as it’s where the housemates can speak privately to Big Brother, venting their frustrations, confessing their secret crushes and even going off on a drunken tangent from time to time.

It’s also where the group make their nominations, and often discover secret twists and turns thrown at them by the show’s bosses.

While it’s yet to be confirmed which celebrities will be heading into the house this time around, a “leaked” line-up over the weekend suggested that former ‘X Factor’ singer Christopher Maloney and ‘Ex On The Beach’ star Megan McKennna would be joining the previously-rumoured Gemma Collins, Danniella Westbrook and Krstina Rihanoff.

'CBB' launches live on Tuesday night, at 9pm on Channel 5.
