The American celebrities due to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house on Tuesday have given producers a headache.
The Celebrity Big Brother 2017 lineup is reportedly in chaos hours before the launch – All because of housemates who have to fly in for the show.
The celebs booked for Big Brother who have to fly in are refusing to fly in until the last minute – Giving the show’s producers a major headache.
An insider told the Daily Star: “Quite a few of the housemates who are flying in from America wanted to celebrate New Year’s Eve at home. They refused to agree to the flight time put forward by the production team.”
Flights that are late will cause major trouble for producers as they need to prepare the stars for the series with photoshoots and filming before VT’s.
The source added: “This is causing a real headache for production staff. There are serious concerns things could go wrong if one of them misses their flight.”
Emma Willis and Rylan Clark-Neal are returning to host the reality show on Channel 5 – Although Rylan has been hinted to enter the house as part of an early-day task.
In a new twist, half of the famous residents are previous contestants returning for a second stay, having made their mark the first time round.
These so-called All Stars, and the New Stars, will be moving into a house that has been given a bright pop art makeover – although when they start butting heads, the language will probably be more colourful than the decor.
Channel 5 have revealed the famous house pictures for Celebrity Big Brother 2017 – inspired by Andy Warhol, the house is pop-art themed.
Big Brother producers have revealed that over 150 cans of paint were used to theme the newly renamed house.
Celebrity Big Brother 2017 kicks off Tuesday 3rd January at 9pm on Channel 5.
