Celebrity Big Brother reveals new eye, hints at unwelcome surprises

Celebrity Big Brother housemates are in for a slew of "unwelcome surprises" this time round, as the house embraces a twisted and vaudeville-inspired theme.

Last series, we saw Big Brother divide housemates into Team UK and Team USA, but when the reality show returns in January, a whole new batch of celebrities will have something very different in store.

Big Brother is going all theatrical on us and housemates will be taken back in time to when vaudeville (think burlesque dancers, magicians and stand-up comics) was all the rage. And while that era does ooze glamour and luxury, Big Brother has warned its newest recruits there will be some "unwelcome surprises" in store...

Ahead of CBB's return early next year, Channel 5 has now released the first photo of its new and improved circus-themed eye logo.

And speaking about the house's recent image overhaul, show bosses have said: "The famous house has undergone a major costume change, and Housemates will be transported to a striking and theatrical setting which echoes the vaudeville theatres of a bygone era.

"Big Brother may have set the scene of a decadent, antiquated world, but behind the performance there are hints at a grittier undertone…what lurks in the shadows? The Housemates will discover that there will be unwelcome surprises in store."

While the house's interiors will be grand and theatre-like, the garden will transform into the foggy backstreets of London, complete with a hidden pub snug that will be the perfect place for "sharing secrets" and "backstage backstabbing."

Anyone else getting a *tad* excited already?! We can't wait to see the pictures of the house!

The unveiling of CBB's new look comes after a slew of celebrities have already been rumoured for the new series.

So far, names include former TOWIE star Gemma Collins, Stephanie Davis, Danniella Westbrook, Geordie Shore's Scott Timlin and Spencer Matthews - after his early exit from I'm A Celebrity.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Scott Disick is also rumoured for the show and has reportedly been offered $1million to appear.
