Big Brother house gets power trip
Big Brother housemates are set to face the toughest series, as host Emma Willis whips the group into shape.
The upcoming season, dubbed Big Brother: Power Trip, will see the housemates showing their ruthless sides to seize power, influence and control the rest of the house. Viewers will also be given the power to manipulate the contestants throughout the series.
The house has been given a futuristic makeover - renovated and redesigned to feature stark open spaces, sleek, clean lines and technology instead of the sumptuous furnishings and ornate decorations from the last home.
As well as hosting the main show, Emma will be joined by former X Factor contestant Rylan Clark to present the spin-off Big Brother's Bit On the Side.
Ex-Celebrity Big Brother housemate Luisa Zissman, who was a runner-up on Alan Sugar's The Apprentice, will be a panellist on Big Brother's Bit On The Psych with Rylan and Iain Lee, and Bit On The Side, as well as a roving reporter for Bit On The Psych.
"When I was in the house I didn't hold back, so I will be exactly the same on the panel. I'm really looking forward working with Emma, Rylan and Iain and can't wait to get to know this year's new batch of housemates," she said.
Big Brother: Power Trip will launch on Channel 5 in June.
