Big Brother is in for a major twist when it returns in a few months time, according to reports.

The regular series of the Channel 5 reality show is set to come back onto our screens soon and this time round, it sounds like we could be getting more than we bargained for.

Rumour has it that this year's housemates will also be joined by a slew of celebrities, in attempts to "really mix up" the next series of Big Brother.

News of producers' plans for Big Brother were first revealed in Now magazine. It's believed the Big Brother house will be split into two - one half will have your usual contestants living in it and the other will have celebrities.

A source revealed: "We're planning on really mixing up the regular series this time by chucking in a load of celebs too and splitting the house up. The producers have been approaching people from Gogglebox, TOWIE and Ex On The Beach and have some great names lined up."

Sounds exciting, right?

If the rumours are true, it wouldn't be the first time Big Brother has crossed over its regular series with its celebrity version.

For Celebrity Big Brother back in 2006, Chantelle Houghton was placed in the house alongside the likes of Preston and Jodie Marsh and had to fool the famous housemates into thinking she was also a celebrity.

Ultimate Big Brother in 2010 saw a slew of memorable housemates from the regular series of Big Brother and some from CBB combine to marks its last series on Channel 4.

And last year, on Channel 5, Big Brother's Timewarp series saw a slew of show favourites including Jasmine Lennard, Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace, Nikki Graheme, James Jordan and Rylan Clark-Neal come back either as part of a task or for a short stay in the house.
