Celebrity Big Brother 2016: First Look At The New House

The new series of Celebrity Big Brother is fast approaching, and while we continue to wade through a list of line-up rumours longer than our own Christmas list, the first photos of the new look house have been released.

And boy oh boy, have bosses done a great job with this one.

The house has undergone a major transformation, with Channel 5 describing the threatical setting as something which ‘echoes the Vaudeville theatres of a bygone era’.

The celebrities will enter via a ‘majestic’ staircase and will be treated to fancy rooms and a ‘Whitechapel style foggy street scene’ garden with a ‘Victorian pub snug’, but let’s be honest - there’s probably some not-so-nice surprises hidden within.

Celebrity Big Brother launches on January 5 on Channel 5.
