Channel 5 has confirmed that the Celebrity Big Brother will return on Thursday January 3rd at 9.00pm with a two-hour ‘live launch’.

The show features presenter Brian Dowling introduce us to a fresh batch of star housemates, who are expected to move in to Britain’s most famous house for a stay of up to three weeks.

Emma Willis, Jamie East and Alice Levine will be back with an hour-long edition of Big Brother’s Bit On The Side immediately afterwards at 11.00pm, including reactions to the night’s events from the panel and studio audience.

The first highlights show is scheduled for Friday January 4th at 9.00pm, with a new episode of Celebrity Wedding Planner seperating it from a half-hour of live feed at 11.00pm on Channel 5. Bit On The Side follows at 11.30pm.

The new series is the first to air as part of the broadcaster’s renegotiated Big Brother deal, announced in April, which will see it remain on telly until at least 2014.

    Ha ha. So, Billy got it wrong again (as usual). He’s gone from saying it was launching on the 7th, to launching on the 4th and then has the cheek to tweet the following:

    “I see bbspy are up with the news lol 3 days too late :P”

    Yes Billy, but unlike you, BBspy published the correct date.

    @SS Who’s Billy?

    Can’t wait for this to begin although I do feel like C5 are killing the show by airing two series a year

    Can’t wait for the new series of CBB to begin, can’t get enough of it and glad they have two series a year, wish some ppl [like lanky and Jammy] would just stop moaning about it whenever they get the chance and just be glad it’s back with us.

    @SS Ah, I thought his name was Marky. That’s hilarious!


    I am glad it’s back with us, and that’s why I’m against there being two series a year. If they keep throwing it at us viewers will get tired quickly. It’s no surprise that the ratings for this summer’s CBB were down half a million on January.

    Ah, I remember the days when I used to be excited about such things. Now it’s a case of “they’re announcing that already!”.

    Two hours of Brian Dowling – no thanks.
