Celebrity Big Brother 2016 lands Theatrical theme.

Celebrity Big Brother returns in January 2016 on Channel 5 and this time, Big Brother is hosting a spectacular that will captivate and delight viewers, as they witness brand new Housemates adapting to life under the glare of Big Brother’s limelight.   Emma Willis returns to host the live launch as the celebs are unveiled.

The famous house has undergone a major costume change, and Housemates will be transported to a striking and theatrical setting which echoes the vaudeville theatres of a bygone era. As they take their cue to enter the House, the celebrities will descend down a majestic staircase, leading to glamourous rooms made up of rich opulent textures and packed with intriguing curiosities.


Big Brother may have set the scene of a decadent, antiquated world, but behind the performance there are hints at a grittier undertone…what lurks in the shadows?  The Housemates will discover that there will be unwelcome surprises in store.  The BB garden has been transformed into a Whitechapel style foggy street scene with a Victorian pub snug which will provide a hidden corner for sharing secrets and backstage backstabbing.

As ever the celebrities will be called to the Diary Room to nominate.  Not everyone will be present in the final act, but who will make the curtain call and take the final bow?  You decide.


Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On the Side returns weeknights with Rylan Clark-Neal.  Joining him will be a variety of celebrity panellists and an audience of CBB fans to debate hot topics, reveal exclusives and go behind the scenes of the main show.
