Emma Willis and Rylan Clark-Neal are both back for Celebrity Big Brother 2018 which airs on Channel 5 in early 2018.
In January 2018, as the nation marks 100 years since women won the right to vote for the very first time, Celebrity Big Brother launches this series with an all-female cast of celebrity housemates in a salute to a centenary of women’s suffrage on Channel 5.
Emma Willis will return as the shows main host, Celebrity Big Brother will initially explore how the all-female housemates interact, from politicians to performing artists, as they enter the house first, ahead of the celebrity male housemates.
Over the course of the series, as the male counterparts enter the house, the housemates will take part in a series of entertaining tasks and hidden experiments which will test their – and our – assumptions, challenge gender stereotypes and reveal fascinating truths about what it is to be a woman – and man – in the 21st century.
Channel 5 teased: “See what happens when women hold the power, as Celebrity Big Brother January 2018 is set to be celebratory, surprising and insightful.”
Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On the Side will return weeknights with Rylan Clark-Neal.
Earlier this year, Emma Willis addressed reports of a women-only series, she told ITV’s Lorraine: “I’ve read these stories in the papers but I haven’t had a phone call to confirm anything.
“I think it would be an amazing thing to do though. It’s going to have been 100 years since women got the right to vote around that time and we now live in a world that is pro-feminism, finally! We deserve to be equal.
“Personally, I think it would be amazing to have all women in the house. We did it once before when Ziggy (Lichman) was the only man and it was all girls, but then the boys were slowly filtered in.”
The Celebrity Big Brother 2018 eye is expected to be released tomorrow by Channel 5.
The official CBB lineup will not be announced until the day of the launch show, but expect rumours and speculation in the coming weeks.
