The launch date for the thirteenth series of Big Brother has been confirmed as 5 June.
The Channel 5 reality show will launch with a special auditions show, hosted by Holy Moly's Jamie East, before the main show with Brian Dowling airs at 9pm.
Emma Willis will also return to front spin-off Big Brother's Bit on the Side at 10.45pm when the launch show ends.
The first live eviction will reportedly take place the following Friday 8 June at 10pm.
This year, viewers will be able to keep up to date with all the action from the house through a regular live feed.
Presenter and winner of the show, Brian Dowling, told Digital Spy:
"Live feed is back after every live show. There will be an hour on 5*. We did that in January and it worked. When we did live [celebrity] nominations I think over a million watched, which was record-breaking for 5*.
"I think people realised then that there really was an interest in live feed."
Fans have, however, been airing their outrage at the lack of a 24/7 live feed, but Channel 5 have since said they will not re-instate it.
Catch the Big Brother launch show on Channel 5 at 9pm on 5 June.
