We are just weeks away from the launch of the summer series of Big Brother and this year the game playing and back stabbing looks set to be turned up to maximum.
Coming hot on the heels of the most watched Celebrity Big Brother series in years, the civilian version will initiate Big Brother: Power Trip on launch night. The producers tease that the housemates this year will have to seize power, keep it and impose it on their fellow housemates. Viewers will also have the power to meddle with the housemates and manipulate them throughout the series.
The house has been given a complete redesign. Gone are the sumptuous furnishings and ornate decorations of the last Celebrity Big Brother House and in their place now feature stark open spaces and sleek, clean lines in a House that looks as though it has been transported from the future. Technology is at its heart.
It was confirmed today that former Celebrity Big Brother finalist Luisa Zissman will be joining the presenting team for the spin-off shows Bit On The Side and Bit On The Psych. Big Brother will be back for the live launch on Channel 5 in June.
