13 Feb 2024, 08:30
Ahead of Celebrity Big Brother spectacularly returning to our screens next month, exciting details have been shared regarding what we can expect from the first episode.
So far, the line-up for the rebooted celebrity version of the reality show has been kept well and truly under wraps by ITV, and it has now been confirmed that nobody will find out who the celeb contestants are until they enter the house.
A post on the official Celebrity Big Brother X account (formerly Twitter) has also revealed that the launch show will be totally LIVE. This comes after the opening episode of the 2023 reboot of the regular Big Brother series was pre-recorded.
The new post reads: “NEWS JUST IN 🚨 Celebrity Big Brother is returning this March and the launch show will be completely LIVE! It’ll be the very first time anyone gets to see our celebrity Housemates #CBBUK”.
The move to ITV1 for Celebrity Big Brother continues the triumphant return of the reality format, which was previously on Channel 4 and then Channel 5.
An exact launch date has yet to be revealed for Celebrity Big Brother on ITV1, but we do know it will be in March, and will see a cast of famous faces isolated from the outside world as they embark on the ultimate social experiment.
They will leave the luxury of their lives behind and take part in weekly nominations and tough tasks with cameras capturing their every move.
Celebrity Big Brother will be followed every night by Celebrity Big Brother: Late & Live over on ITV2, during which viewers will get an additional hour of exclusive content.
The Celebrity Big Brother: Live Stream will also return to screens, airing seven nights a week on ITVX, giving fans the opportunity to watch live footage into the small hours after Celebrity Big Brother: Late & Live.
Celebrity Big Brother is coming to ITV1 and ITVX in March.
