Channel 5 has released scheduling details for the second week of Celebrity Big Brother 2018 – with an extended 95-minute episode due to air on Tuesday 9th January.

Following the first week of the new series, which concludes with a live special entitled ‘Full House’ on Friday 5th, the show continues nightly at 9.00pm.

However, the instalment on Tuesday 9th January has been extended to 95 minutes, airing between 9.00pm and 10.35pm.

It is not currently clear what bosses have planned for this episode, which is currently billed as just ‘Celebrity Big Brother’.

While it could feature an eviction, the only eviction C5 has officially confirmed so far is on Friday 12th, airing in two parts at 9.00pm and 10.30pm.

Tuesday episodes are usually only an hour long, even when they feature live evictions. C5 has yet to clarify whether this is a one-off change, or Tuesday episodes will run for 90 minutes throughout the series.

While the main show has a regular schedule, Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side – which airs on weeknights only this series – will move around.

Due to the extension on Tuesday 9th, BOTS airs at 11.35pm that night, followed by half an hour of live feed at 12.30am.

The following night, Wednesday 10th, it will air a shorter, 45-minute edition at 10.05pm, due to C5’s coverage of the EFL’s Carabao Cup at 10.50pm. The Rylan Clark-Neal-hosted spin-off otherwise airs at 11.05pm each night.
