Celebrity Big Brother 2014: First pictures of new house released
The Big Brother house gets a Liberace-style revamp
The first pictures of next year's Celebrity Big Brother house have been released and, well, the contestants are in for a gloriously kitsch experience.
Plush red velvet sofas, golden armchairs, ornate mirrors, grand paintings, glitter ball chandeliers and their very own (fake) polar bear await the celebrities, who will enter the new house on Friday 3 January 2014.
Among those rumoured to be joining the house are The Only Way Is Essex star Sam Faiers, former N-Dubz singer Dappy and the ever-controversial Katie Hopkins. Other maybes include Katie 'Jordan' Price, presenter Justin Lee Collins, boxers David Haye and Ricky Hatton and even Lindsay Lohan (we think not...).
Blue singer Lee Ryan is a possible, as is football manager Sven Goran-Eriksson's ex-girlfriend Nancy Dell'Olio.
Evander Holyfield, the boxer who had his ear bitten off by Mike Tyson in 1997, has reportedly signed onto the show, but this has yet to be confirmed by representatives of the Channel 5. Tyson himself is now banned from the UK following a rape conviction in 1992.
One thing's for sure - whoever enters the 2014 house can expect to kick back in palatial surroundings.
