As a result of the theme, Big Brother bosses have confirmed that this summer's housemates will have to embrace their power-hungry side and fight for dominance in the compound.

Big Brother: Power Trip will encourage housemates to get ruthless and seize and maintain power, while viewers will also get the chance to manipulate the contestants.

The famous house has yet again been given a makeover, meaning this year's compound will have a futuristic feel with "stark open spaces and sleek clean lines". There will also be a heavy focus on technology.
