Celebrity Big Brother’s milestone 20th series will kick off with a two-hour live launch show on Tuesday 1st August, Channel 5 has confirmed today.

Airing at 9.00pm, the special will see Emma Willis introduce the latest batch of famous housemates as they move in to a redesigned ‘hotel’-style house – and (probably) face the first twist.

It will be followed by spin-off show Bit On The Side, presented by Rylan Clark-Neal, at 11.00pm – while fans will also be able to enjoy an hour of launch night live feed from 12.05am.

The show follows its usual schedule from Wednesday 2nd August, with the main show at 9.00pm, followed by BOTS at 11.00pm.

Oddly, there is not currently a live show billed for Friday 4th August, with a regular highlights episode instead airing at 9pm that night.

The opening week will also see Big Brother icon Nikki Grahame appear in an episode of Channel 5’s In Therapy, airing on Thursday 3rd at 10.00pm.

Earlier today, C5 released the all new CBB eye logo, which featured a gold and silver zig-zag design.
