Here’s everything you need to know about Celebrity Big Brother 2018…

When is the second CBB eviction?

What’s the theme of CBB 2018?
This series saw the first ever all-female Celebrity Big Brother line-up – at least to start with.
Channel 5 bosses are celebrating the centenary of women’s suffrage – when some women were granted the vote in 2018 – by pulling in a batch of female celebrities.
In their announcement, CBB producers said: “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.”
However, male celebrities will be added to the line-up throughout the duration of the series.
“Presented by Emma Willis, 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,” the producers went on.
“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.
“See what happens when women hold the power, as Celebrity Big Brother January 2018 is set to be celebratory, surprising and insightful.”
What’s the CBB 2018 logo?
The Celebrity Big Brother eye has undergone a whole make-over since the last series, this time sporting a colourful iris and thick eyelashes.
It’s made to look like a woman’s eye, with a lick of eyeliner and even mascara to make it pop.
But right at the centre of the pupil is a camera lens – to remind the housemates that Big Brother is always watching…
How to watch Celebrity Big Brother live
You can tune in to Channel 5 on the telly or watch live on Demand 5 from your PC or mobile device.
If you miss any episodes you can catch up on Demand 5 online 24 hours later.
How long does Celebrity Big Brother last?
The celeb edition of the Big Brother series is always shorter than BB and usually lasts about a month.
If the show follows series 19 and 17 – it could run for a total of 32 days and potentially hold its final on Friday February 3.
It doesn’t sound long but it’s plenty of time for stars to make a fool out of themselves.
The summer CBB series in 2017 was the shortest since 2013 lasting just 25 days but the the previous New Year series of 2016 and 2017 have been 32 days.
Who is in CBB 2018?
