"Big Brother" will see a twist with the final housemate voted in by the public on the launch show this evening (05.06.17).
The Channel 5 show welcomed "Ex on the Beach" regular Kayleigh Morris, model Chanelle McCleary, courier Arthur Fulford, till operator Ellie Young, student Raphel Korine, nightclub owner Joe Quaranta and "Dreamboys" dancer Lotan Carter into the famous abode, plus a whole host of paired contestants.
They are mother and daughter duo Mandy Longworth and Charlotte Keys, employer and employee Rebecca Jane and Kieran Lee, husband and wife Imran and Sukhvinder Javeed and sisters Deborah and Hannah Agboola.
Kayleigh, 28, is hoping she will be able to prove she is more than just a "bimbo" on the reality show.
On why she wanted to go on "BB", she said: "You will be put in an environment where you will either sink or swim with lots of different personalities."
Chanelle, 24, has vowed to cause "mayhem".
She said: "I want to let my wave down and cause some mayhem."
And Lotan, also 28, has vowed to "bare" his soul.
he said: "I want to lay it all bare and put myself through the test in this unique and intense experience."
A selection of candidates hopeful to enter the house will battle it out to be selected as the People's Housemate, who will have the power to communicate with the "outside world".
A "Big Brother" spokesperson said: "There will be one final housemate position up for grabs which will be decided by the public in tonight's live launch, from a selection of candidates.
"The lucky housemate voted in by the public will become the People's Housemate and will hold great power within the house, even having access to the outside world."
The People's Housemate will be announced on the live launch show on Monday night's (05.06.17) episode.
