Celebrity Big Brother returns tonight and ahead of the show's launch, its host Emma Willis has teased she is "very happy" with the celebrity lineup.

For weeks and weeks now everyone has been talking about which famous faces we will see going into the CBB house this time round. From TOWIE's Dan Osborne to I'm A Celebrity's Janice Dickinson and X Factor lovebirds Stevi Ritchie and Chloe Jasmine, we're all dying to know who will become housemates.

As CBB prepares to launch later tonight, Emma stopped by ITV's Lorraine and teased she is more than pleased with the show's final lineup.

She said: "I found out about a week or two ago. Part of me doesn't want to know, though, because I still like to view it as a viewer and I like the surprise on launch night."

"I kind of have to know..." she continued. "I have to do research on people because some I've possibly not heard of before. Especially because this series is UK versus USA, there are some housemates that are from reality shows in the States that I may not have seen."

Could she mean Teen Mom's, Farrah Abraham perhaps? After all, she has been heavily rumoured too!

Other names thrown into the mix have been US actor Daniel Baldwin, EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook (who has strongly denied she is going into the house) and Hear'Say singer Noel Sullivan.

While the rest of us all sit and wait, Emma is fully aware of each and every housemate and did admit she did spill the beans to her nearest and dearest.

"My parents and Matt are the only people I tell because I know I can trust them," she added. "He gets really excited by it."

The housemates that do enter the CBB house tonight will have to live by this year's UK versus USA theme.

Channel 5 have promised "plenty of surprises" are in store for this series' celebrities as the British and American housemates will be pitted against each other.

Show bosses revealed: "Our patriotic celebrities will need to be very competitive as UK and USA is pitted against each other in an epic trial of tasks, challenges and twists."

And staying true to the show's new theme, the Celebrity Big Brother house has even had a makeover. We think it might be its boldest yet, don't you?
