Thw new series of Celebrity Big Brother, hosted by Emma Willis and Rylan Clark, will start on January 3, and the show’s famous house in Borehamwood has had a flashy, Russian-themed makeover for the purpose. The Moscow-in-Hertfordshire look is created with a grand fireplace, celebrity portraits, sumptuous chairs and sofas, and glittering chandeliers.
The house is built on top of Elstree Studios’ old underwater stage, where scenes in The Dam Busters and Moby Dick were filmed. But who will be calling it home next year?
Contestants are rumoured to include model Katie Price, Nancy Dell’Olio, comic Jim Davidson and The Apprentice’s Katie Hopkins.
