Emma Willis will present the main show, and she will co-host CBBBOTS with Rylan Clark.

Earlier this week, Channel 5 unveiled the new eye logo, which features a pupil filled with a stormy cloud surrounded by thorns.

The theme for series 15 is "twisted fairytale", and show bosses have warned that the celebrities "will not live happily ever after".

The Big Brother compound, which is located at Elstree Studios, will be redesigned to feature "whimsical elements that conjure up a magical atmosphere full of possibility and curiosity, but there are hints that something more sinister may be lurking".

Emma will present the main show, and she'll also continue to co-host spin-off show, Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On The Side, alongside Rylan Clark. Joining them will be regular panellist Luisa Zissman.

As always, the line-up for the new series of CBB is being kept top secret, but rumoured stars include Calum Best, Katie Hopkins, East 17 singer Brian Harvey, Danniella Westbrook, and this year's X Factor contestant Chloe Jasmine.

The last series was won by Hollywood actor Gary Busey.

Celebrity Big Brother: Live Launch airs Wednesday 7 January at 9pm on Channel 5.
