CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER kicks off this Thursday and the reality shows host Emma Willis has teased that the show has some big names.
Emma, 42 said her “jaw hit the floor” when she was told about this year’s star-studded line-up.
She said: “When I heard a few of the names of the celebs coming on this year my jaw hit the floor!
“I think the theme is interesting because it is the eye of the storm so from what I believe we will see people who themselves have been in the eye of the storm be that either on the receiving or giving end.
The host also let slip that there’s a “house within a house” in the Eye of the Storm-themed series which kick-starts on Thursday.

“It sounds like #CBB isn’t the first storm that this housemate has been in… Any guesses?.
Alongside some neon graphics, Marcus can be heard saying: ”The sunshine will continue for most of us this week but for the people in the south east of England, you won’t want to be stripping off and heading into the sea just yet as there’s 100 per cent chance of a storm.

“We are expecting the bad boy weather to continue until Thursday evening.”
