Celebrity Big Brother producers have spent a record-breaking £250k on the new house, making it the most expensive design yet.
Channel 5 have gone all-out to save Big Brother by splashing quarter of a million pounds to renovate the new Celebrity Big Brother house.
This year’s house is the most expensive yet, featuring a sauna in the garden.
The layout of the house otherwise has remained more or less the same as last summer, although the interior has been revamped for this year’s bunch of celebs.
“Producers pulled out all the stops to make sure this year’s house is the quirkiest and plushest viewers and housemates will have seen,” an insider told The Sun.
“This series is a special one, given the fact only women will be entering the house to start with in a salute to the centenary of women’s suffrage. They wanted the house to be a standout one,”
“They wanted to make sure it would be particularly appealing for the women, which meant they also added in a new sauna,” the source added.
Two bedrooms remain although only one of them has been revealed ahead of launch.
The second bedroom, and the iconic Diary Room chair, will be unveiled on launch night, Channel 5 confirmed.
Celebrity Big Brother will launch with an all-female house and they will initially explore how the female housemates interact, from politicians to performing artists, ahead of the celebrity male housemates.
It has been revealed that the all-female twist will only last 4 days.
Celebrity Big Brother 2018 launches on Channel 5 on 2 January at 9PM.
