The new series of Celebrity Big Brother, dubbed as a UK vs USA celeb smackdown, kicks off at 9pm this Thursday on Channel 5. While the identities of the British and American celebrity contestants still remains a closely guarded secret, the reality TV show’s producers have given us a tantalising sneak peek around the new house and garden. Now we can all see where these as-yet-nameless celebrities will shortly be moving into, or should that be moaning about (once they’ve scoffed down all the food).
First thing you notice is that there’s going to be a lot of red, white and blue in the autumn 2015 edition of Celebrity Big Brother. From the Union Jack scatter cushions to the bowler hat lampshades, it’s probably the coolest that cool Britannia has ever looked.
However, the overall styling is definitely more American diner than English tea room! As for the garden, the swimming pool area has been given a complete New York City makeover – with skyscrapers as the backdrop and a miniature replica of the Statue of Liberty plonked in the middle of the pool.
The amiable pairing of Emma Willis and Rylan Clark will once again present the main and Bit on the Side shows of Celebrity Big Brother, with the likes of Carol Voderman, Bobby Davro and Lindsay Lohan’s mother already rumoured to be among the contestants in this autumn’s series.
“Celebrity Big Brother has thrown down the gauntlet to celebrities from both sides of the pond to take part in the ultimate CBB battle,” say Channel 5 in their PR blurb to hype up the TV programme. “The CBB House will be decorated with British and American iconography, but the housemates will feel far from home as there will be plenty of surprises along the way.”
All will be revealed on Thursday night, of course. In the meantime, here are those Celebrity Big Brother publicity photos issued earlier today…
Looks like the garden’s upper terrace will provide a welcome sanctuary from the pressures of daily life as a housemate… and a great place for the celebs to gossip about each other.
No sign of a BBQ yet!
A different view of the English Country Garden setting in this part of the #CBB outdoor living area. Take note of the three wooden benches sporting the traditional bench design made famous by the great British architect, Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens.
Quick glimpse of inside the Celebrity Big Brother house for fans of the show. Without the blue, the red and white dining chairs and dinnerware shown here look more Canadian than American or British.
The infamous diary room chair seems to have been upstaged by the Big Brother eye this time around.
