Celebrity Big Brother 5: Meet the 2014 housemates
Contestant Sam Faiers joins a host of other surprise names
Tonight, Celebrity Big Brother returned to watch over us all once more.
Now in its fifth series, the pressure was on to persuade (but do they really need persuading?) 12 not-so-innocent celebrities to enter the house.
This year, the high profile residence has undergone an opulent Renaissance-inspired upgrade, complete with wall paintings, gold-painted chairs, a theatrical model polar bear and chandeliers. Big Brother will not be letting its contestants simply kick back and relax though - that much is in little doubt.
A massive 45 cameras lurk in every nook and cranny of the house, meaning that viewers really won't be missing a thing. This will either be entertaining, disturbing or both - probably the latter in approximately equal measures.
Emma Willis and previous Celebrity Big Brother winner Rylan Clark will be presenting Bit on the Side during the week to fill everybody in on all the (hopefully dramatic) goings-on.
But whose moves will we be helplessly following 24 hours a day?
