As 14 new contestants prepare to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house tonight, it’s time to get to know those expected a little better.

Who? George Gilbey, Gogglebox star.

Where do I know that face from? George is known for appearing on Channel 4’s Gogglebox, the programme that depicts people watching TV. The show won the Bafta for the best reality and constructed factual programme this year.

Why Celebrity Big Brother? There’s something all a bit meta about George starring in a TV show about people watching TV and then in one where he himself is being watched…

What can we expect in the house? The first time George appeared on Gogglebox he was introduced as not having had a girlfriend for a year. He is still single so he could be on the look-out for love among his fellow contestants.

Odds of winning? 11/4

Hosted by Emma Willis, series seven of the hit reality show airs on Channel 5, with viewers promised “countless twists, turns and tough tasks”.

The house has been given a make-over for the new run, but celebrities will not be expecting VIP treatment but, instead, plenty of drama and tension.

Last year’s show was won by Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby, who beat 5ive singer Abz Lowe to the title.
