Big Brother just dropped a huge new series teaser to mark its 18th birthday
We’ve just had our very first look at the brand new Celebrity Big Brother eye.
To mark the show’s 18th birthday – yes, Big Brother would be able to officially buy alcohol, were Big Brother a real person – the highly-anticipated 2018 series has been given a moody makeover.
Landing on Twitter on Wednesday morning (July 18), BBUK announced: “Here’s a very special treat to mark our 18th birthday: a first look at the BRAND NEW #CBB eye!”
What’s more, we’ve had confirmation of this year’s theme: “Eye of the Storm.”
This news comes one day after hosts Emma Willis and Rylan Clark-Neal announced that something big was coming, so fans have been keeping an eagle EYE (see what we did there?) on their Twitter feeds.
The upcoming Celebrity Big Brother series has been shrouded in rumour and speculation. BB season usually kicks off with a non-celeb version of the show, which in the past has gone up against ITV2 rival Love Island.
Of course, we haven’t had a Big Brother fix yet this year – but this announcement appears to have acted as confirmation that CBB will be coming ahead of a standard Big Brother series.
The launch date is yet to be announced, but if previous calculations are correct then we would expect to see it hit our screens at the end of July – timing itself just after the assumed final of Love Island. At least we know we’ll have something else to get addicted to, eh?
As ever, the line-up has been kept completely under wraps. But rumours include The Only Way Is Essex‘s Bobby Norris, Meghan Markle’s sister Samantha Markle and former Coronation Street actress Georgia May Foote.
We’ll bring you more updates as we get them.
Celebrity Big Brother returns later this year on Channel 5.
