CELEBRITY Big Brother contestants are set to vent their fury and frustration in a sea of neon after teaser images gave a glimpse into the new pop-art inspired Diary Room.
Arguably the most important section of the bungalow, the hub of the Big Brother dialogue has been decked out with bright yellow and blue walls and a snazzy red carpet.
A grey chair sticks out rather imposingly from the eye-catching shades yet looks pretty plush and comfy for those fancying a long natter.
The sneak peek photographs also show the diary room has a pretty good view, with a skyline clearly visible through a mirror at the back.
Meanwhile the entrance has also been jazzed up in preparation for the Channel 5 show’s All Stars and New Stars-themed programme.
The Big Brother star icon sits outside while the electronic eye – which grants entry – is on the right hand side.
Last year, the room had a fairytale twist and a wolf could be seen howling at the moon, while tree branches and a darkened sky added to the dramatic look.
Yet this time around, it is an altogether more cheery environment with a nod to the striking colour schemes used by modern artisst Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
It is bound to be at the heart of the action when the new series kicks off tonight.
This year’s theme – All Stars and New Stars – will see returning faces as well as some fresh ones to make it the most scandalous series yet.
In fact, CBB bosses are so keen to encourage old flames to start up again (or see new romances start) that they’ve even tweaked the bedroom layout to encourage people to jump into bed together.
Meet this year’s Celebrity Big Brother housemates…
After an appearance in 2012, The Sun Online revealed that the 35-year-old glamour model and star is returning to CBB.
The fiery star had an explosive row on set with Denise Welch, which ultimately led to her eviction.
A source told The Sun Online: “Nicola is going back into the CBB house. She’s had the worst two years of her life but now she’s feeling strong and she is desperate to let her hair down and have some fun in there…”
The American model is set to return to the Celebrity Big Brother house after starring in the show in 2015.
He came second to Apprentice star James Hill and the pair’s bromance was the subject of much gossip during that series.
Austin also won praise from viewers after he shaved his head in the house in support of Gail Porter who suffers from Alopecia.
However, things are certain to get firey after revealing he hates Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag – who are entering the house with him.
He raged: “Speidi were a disaster. I hate them – as everyone in America does.”
The Loose Women panellist is returning to the CBB house after coming runner-up to Julian Clary in 2012.
She is reportedly re-entering the house in order to force a ‘trial separation’ from her husband, Ray Fensome, after the pair admitted they had been having troubles in their nine-year marriage.
Her appearance was guessed ahead of time after fans correctly identified her in a teaser video for this year’s series.
Speidi were the most controversial housemates EVER – and now they are set to ruffle even more feathers now they are back on our screens.
The reality star couple – known as Speidi – have reportedly signed a six-figure deal to come back for another run on the show after the success of their last appearance in 2013, losing out to BOTS host Rylan Clark-Neal.
An insider told The Daily Star: “Spencer and Heidi are very competitive and they got so close to winning last time that they’re hell bent on coming out on top this time around.
“They’ve never quite lived down being beaten by Rylan. Last time they were not sure what to expect, but they’ve become big fans of the show since their stint in the House.”
Though they haven’t quite given up their diva demands either.
Calum Best essentially let the cat out of the bag that he will be returning to the Elstree compound during a conversation with the Daily Star Online, telling them he was “coming to London in January to do some work”.
When pressed, he just winked and said “no comment.”
He added: “I’ve got a lot of time for Celebrity Big Brother, it has done a lot for me.
“If I did go back, I would go on the All Stars team and it would be fun.”
Calum came in third during the January 2015 series of the show, losing out to eventual winner Katie Price and runner-up Katie Hopkins.
James Jordan divided audiences with his feisty nature when he first entered the Big Brother house in 2014, and The Sun revealed he would be returning as bosses know he “won’t hold back”.
He has signed a six-figure deal in order to appear on the show, only a month after his dancer wife Ola Jordan took on the Australian Outback on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.
For many, he was the villain of the house – and was evicted to a wall of boos from the audience outside when he was given the chop.
Sources confirmed to The Sun that Jasmine has flown from her home in California to London to prepare for her appearance.
The star became famed for flashing her boobs during her time on the show – as well as embarking on a short-lived love triangle romance with Lee Ryan as she fought against Casey Batchelor.
She also snogged both former N-Dubz star Dappy and Apprentice star Luisa Zissman in the house Jacuzzi during her appearance in the 2014 series.
Jasmine was eventually evicted thirteen days into the series, with Jim Davidson going on to win.
Stacy Francis is an American singer and actress that first came into the spotlight during the US X Factor in 2011. She now runs her own talk show on YouTube, and joined the cast of US show R&B Divas: Los Angeles.
She made headlines in 2012 when it was reported that she had an argument with Whitney Houston just HOURS before she died - after Stacy started talking to Whitney’s on/off lover, Ray J – who is also entering the house.
The Sun revealed that bosses had secured DJ Brandon Block for the new series – and he’s sure to be a fiery personality after becoming known for his wild party lifestyle.
At the height of his career, he stormed the stage at the BRIT Awards and got in a furious war of words with Rolling Stones icon Ronnie Wood.
However the musician, who admitted to spending up to £2,000 a week on his cocaine addiction, is now on the straight and narrow and is using CBB to launch his comeback.
The 30-year-old midfielder is following in the footsteps of his ex-wife Danielle Lloyd to enter the famous house next week when the Channel 5 series begins.
He is currently without a club after Gillingham FC terminated his contract in September this year after he failed to recover from an injury.
The dad of three needs the CBB payday after being divorced by glamour model Danielle — giving her £15,000 a month as part of their agreement.
Ray J (real name: William Ray Norwood Jr), became a household name in the States after acting in the TV programme The Sinbad Show in the early 90s.
However, he later saw fame of a different kind in 2007 when a sex tape he made with then-girlfriend Kim Kardashian in 2003 was leaked.
The star is now known best as a rapper after releasing four hip-hop albums (something that runs in the family as he is cousins with Snoop Dogg and his sister is Brandy)
In one of his releases late last year, Ray J slammed his sex tape with Kim K in a diss track, where he spat: “Look at the family, they walk around proud. All because she had my d*** in her mouth.”
Bianca Gascoigne, the former stepdaughter of Paul, was one of the first stars to sign up to enter this year’s CBB.
The 30-year-old is also the ex-girlfriend of another returning CBB star Calum Best, so there are sure to be fireworks as they are reunited since their split.
Whether it’s the rekindling of a love affair or fiery spats between warring exes remain to be seen.
She’s used to the reality show circuit regardless, having found her own shot of fame after participating in Love Island in 2006.
Angie Best is the mother of CBB All Star Calum Best and ex-wife of late footballing legend George Best.
Originally a Bunny at London’s PlayBoy Club, Angie’s modelling career saw her move to New York City and then Los Angeles where she met George.
After her ill-fated marriage to troubled footballer George, Angie moved to Los Angeles and became a celebrity trainer to the likes of Cher, Sharon Stone and Daryl Hannah.
She later penned numerous books about health, fitness and the menopause, as well as writing her own life story about her six-year marriage to George.
She is also the aunt to EastEnders actress Samantha Womack.
James Cosmo is an actor best known for his role as Jeor Mormont in Game of Thrones.
The actor, 68, has had a long and distinguished career in television in film. Born in Clydebank, Scotland, in 1948, he shot to fame on TV series Dr. Finlay’s Casebook in 1965 before going on to star in hundreds of well-known projects.
Starring roles in Highlander, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Trainspotting followed making him internationally famous.
And The Sun Online can reveal there will be TWO more housemates entering on Friday.
Catch Celebrity Big Brother, tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
