Celebrity Big Brother: Meet the housemates - Do you know these stars?

7 January 2015 2:31 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We have our housemates! 14 stupid brave celebrities walked through the doors of the Celebrity Big Brother compound tonight to face a twisted fairytale like no other.

But who are these courageous souls who have shunned spa days and champers for a dirty bath and chickpeas? And do you know any of them? Well, we've got all the details of the gang, so read on for everything you need to know...

Alexander O'Neal

Age: 61

Give me the basics. Alexander is an American R&B singer probably best known for his hit 'Criticise', which reached number four in the UK charts in 1987.

7 January 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Finally, something to brighten up our January! Celebrity Big Brother is back tonight, and we can't wait to see who's about to go into the house. Host Emma Willis has promised a stellar lineup, so we're expecting big things.

We're just getting our popcorn ready, but join us from 9pm when the show starts on Channel 5 for all the action from the glamorous Borehamwood bungalow...

23:05Right, that really is it from us - thanks for joining us!

22:58Ooh, a snippet of live footage. Perez is speaking to Katie, which is presumably straining her ability to be nice. Although they are talking about her (and her horrible fat-shaming show) so maybe not...

22:56But for now, that's your lot! Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side is coming up if you want even more house action, but we'll be saying bye on this blog for now. Thanks for joining us, »

Celebrity Big Brother: See the furry Diary Room chair

7 January 2015 2:18 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Celebrity Big Brother returns tonight and Channel 5 has now released a sneak peek of the brand new Diary Room chair.

The famous seat has been given a makeover to fit the "twisted fairytale" theme for the latest series.

But the chair itself is at least probably fairly comfortable, as it is covered in fur - with the back of the chair shaped like a howling wolf.

The lineup for Celebrity Big Brother will not be confirmed until later, but rumours have suggested that gossip blogger Perez Hilton, Baywatch actor Jeremy Jackson, singer Alexander O'Neal, Calum Best, Katie Hopkins, RuPaul's Drag Race judge Michelle Visage, The Big Reunion's Kavana and Ex on the Beach star Chloe Goodman are among the stars who'll walk through the doors tonight.
