Celebrity Big Brother returned last night for its summer 2016 series, with names including Christopher Biggins and Samantha Fox entering Britain’s most famous house.

As usual, there was an invasion of reality TV stars. Marnie Simpson and Stephen ‘Bear’ Bear are the obligatory MTV housemates, while there’s also Mob Wife Renee Graziano and two X Factor rejects in Chloe Khan and Katie Waissel.

Big Brother die-hards will be familiar with Ariana Grande’s brother Frankie, who was on the American version two years ago. This marks the first time that BBUK has brought over a houseguest from another country’s ‘civilian’ series.

More unusual contenders include James Whale, the controversial radio presenter, and Anthea Turner’s ex-husband Grant Bovey, who has made tabloid headlines over the years with his love life and the collapse of his business.

They’re just some of the fifteen housemates taking part – see all of their arrivals in our gallery!
