Channel 5 unveil Celebrity Big Brother trailer, first housemate

Channel 5 has unveiled the first Celebrity Big Brother trailer for its 2018 run, and confirmed the first housemate that is set to walk through its famous Elstree studios.

Premiering on Christmas Day, the new advert begins with shots of human eyes with a ‘Power’ chant. Clever Big Brother fans have spotted that there are seventeen sets of eyes, potentially signalling that the compound will play host to seventeen famous faces throughout its January 2018 series.

The show’s host, Emma Willis, then appears in the advert, saying: “This time, we’ve got the power. Celebrity Big Brother, the Year of the Woman”.

In other Big Brother news, the first contestant for this year’s show has been unveiled. In an unusual move for Big Brother, a show where contestants are usually shrouded in secrecy, the show confirmed that journalist Rachel Johnson would be joining as a housemate. She follows in the footsteps of her father, Stanley Johnson, who took part in ITV’s I’m a Celebrity last month.
