About Celebrity Big Brother

Since it first threw open its doors in 2001, the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house has gone on to become one of Britain's most notorious residences. Hosted by Emma Willis (formerly Davina McCall and Brian Dowling), 'CBB' started out as a smaller counterpart to the original 'Big Brother' series, but over the years it's earned a name for itself separately from the main show, and is now one of the giants of reality TV. During its time on the air, it's been responsible for some landmark reality moments, including the arrival of Jackie Stallone, George Galloway's stomach-churning impression of a cat, the romance between Chantelle Houghton and Preston, not to mention Denise Welch frolicking in a hot tub with no top on. In latter years, there have also been arguments aplenty, whether it's Julie Goodyear squaring up to Coleen Nolan, Pete Burns laying into Jodie Marsh or Katie Hopkins telling Perez Hilton exactly what she thinks of him. The January 2017 series took on an 'All Stars And New Stars' theme, with some former housemates returning to live with a batch of new famous contestants, including James Jordan, Coleen Nolan, Jedward, Nicola McLean, Calumn Best, Heidi and Spencer Pratt and Kim Woodburn. The summer series will take on a similar format, with the likes of Stephen Bear and Charlotte Crosby rumoured to be returning.
