Love Island may nearly be over but Celebrity Big Brother is just around the corner – woo?

The Big Brother franchise may have dried up like a withered old man, unable to keep up with the young bucks in the Majorca villa, but this series could be different.

Not only was January’s Celebrity Big Brother a huge success but it’s rumoured that this is the last ever CBB series!

Here’s everything you need to know to about the summer series of Celebrity Big Brother U.K.

When is the Celebrity Big Brother Start Date?

Channel 5 have now officially announced that Celebrity Big Brother will launch on Friday, August 17th.

The show will air nightly at 9 pm.

With Love Love Island 2018 coming to a close on Monday 30th July, CBB hopes that it can be go-to reality TV show for the end U.K of summer.

Is This the Last CBB series?

It’s all a bit up in the air for Big Brother and CBB at the moment.

Essentially, the series producers have recently submitted an application to extend the lease on the BB house for another three years.

This suggests that Celebrity Big Brother will continue running, although Channel 5 have hinted that they may not be willing to extend their contract with the show.

CBB and BB could continue on a different channel, rejoining Channel 4, for example.

What Else Do We Know?

In terms of confirmed contestants, there have been plenty of rumours with no full-proof confirmation.

Love Island series three star Gabby Allen was the latest to fall into the trap, with a source close to Gabby saying that she had “signed up” for Celebrity Big Brother 2018.
