Celebrity Big Brother bosses have revealed when the reality show will return for its reboot, with a host of celebs already reported to be signed up to star in the ITV series
ITV Celebrity Big Brother bosses have finally confirmed when we can expect the veteran reality show to return to our screens.
The new colourful eye logo was debuted during an ad break while Love Island All Stars aired on Friday evening on ITV2, while confirming the CBB reboot will be on in March. The bold logo shows a selection of brightly coloured symbols, including a broken heart and a question mark, with a yellow star in the middle – presumably representing the celebrities.
Sharing the new graphic on Twitter, the official CBB account wrote: “Celebrities… Big Brother is coming to get you. Coming March to ITV1 and #CBBUK.”
One celeb rumoured to join the upcoming series is Love Island winner Ekin-Su Culculoglu. The reality star sparked more than a hundred Ofcom complaints after her barely-there costume on Dancing on Ice was deemed a bit much for Sunday teatime.
And days after her split with Love Island co-star Davide Sanclimenti she has signed for the reboot. Breaking the news, 29-year-old Ekin-Su said: “The last 18 months have been a rollercoaster of ups and downs, just like every relationship. Davide and I both wanted to make this relationship work as we cared deeply for each other. Unfortunately, I have recently made the decision to end our relationship and to go our separate ways.”
She added: “Breakups are never easy for any couple. I enjoyed our time together and will cherish the memories we made.”
Turkish stunner Ekin-Su’s CBB rumoured stint would see her live in the Big Brother house with the likes of Kate Middleton’s uncle Gary Goldsmith. The controversial businessman, 58, is known for his outspoken views, and his less-than-complimentary opinions on Kate’s in-laws, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
Royal expert Angela Levin reckons his appearance on the show could be “embarrassing” for the royals.
She told The Sun: “I think it’s cringe-making, very embarrassing, the trouble is he doesn’t like Harry and Meghan at all, some of this comments will fall onto Catherine and she’s had a lot against her, she’s not well, she’s in hospital.
“I think when you come out of an operation you’re quite vulnerable and this could upset her enormously. In principle people who don’t like her could say she encouraged him to do it, but she would have done nothing of the kind.
“It’s very embarrassing. It’s very hard being a royal, and I don’t know if this is a good idea.”
Other housemates set to join the first CBB series for five years include Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas, ex-TOWIE star Joey Essex and former X Factor judge Louis Walsh.
