Even Big Brother haters will struggle to deny that this year's Timebomb-themed house is looking pretty snazzy.

Meet the Big Brother: Timebomb contestants

Channel 5's big-hitter is going retro for its 16th run, so expect giant aquariums, a Sixties-style kitchen, a Mad Men-inspired seating area, beds with sequinned duvets and the usual shed-load of mirrors for the always preposterously vain housemates.

There's even a crocodile in the huge swimming pool. Plus palm trees, lots of kitsch palm trees.

How long will this super shiny kitchen stay glimmering for?

There is plenty of controversy in store for viewers if past Big Brother scandals are anything to go by.

More than 1,800 people complained to broadcasting regulator Ofcom about the latest celebrity series, in which Coronation Street's Ken Morley and Baywatch's Jeremy Jackson were both unceremoniously evicted for “unacceptable language” and common assault respectively.


Then there was last year's main show, which easily won the most complained-about of the year title after picking up nearly 3,800 complaints. Eventual victor Helen Wood was the focus of much of the outrage, with many viewers accusing her of bullying.

One scene, found to have broken broadcasting rules, involved housemates swearing 14 times in just 50 seconds pre-watershed.

Channel 5 announced last month that there will be at least another three years of Big Brother, with one each year and two further celebrity spin-off versions.

Big Brother: Timebomb launches on Channel 5 at 9pm on Tuesday 12 May, hosted by Rylan Clark and Emma Willis.
