The new series Celebrity Big Brother is set to be a corker.

100 years after women won the right to vote, CBB bosses are celebrating the milestone with the first ever all-female house.

Viewers will get to witness how the slew of famous women interact with no men in the mix, before throwing a batch of well-known male celebs in and watching sparks fly.

While names such as Sinitta, Louise Thompson and Laura Simpson are rumoured to be starring in the show, the first male contestant has been confirmed as Jonny Mitchell.

A source told The Sun's Bizarre Column, “Jonny is going to be a big hit on the show. Viewers really enjoyed watching him on Love Island this summer – and clearly there’s still more to see from Jonny.

“His split from Stephanie was a major factor in Channel 5 booking him for the new series. He is guaranteed to bring some drama to the house and romance one of the female contestants.”

The Love Island star has recently split up with Made in Chelsea's Stephanie Pratt, so he's sure to ruffle some feathers amongst the women in the house.

The pair went their separate ways earlier this year, with Steph accusing him of leading a "secret other life" and cheating on her in a Twitter rant.

Steph seemed to get her own back when she was joined by a mystery man at the Jumanji premier, who she called 'perfection' on Instagram this week.

But it seems as though Jonny is moving on from the doomed romance and focussing on his blossoming reality TV career.

Meanwhile the first female contestants confirmed for CBB are Tory MP Charlotte Leslie and transgender newsreader India Willoughby.

Celebrity Big Brother kicks off on January 2 on Channel 5.

Olivia Attwood

Did you know Olivia Attwood used to compete in beauty pagents? Of course you did. Liv is more glam than Amy Childs having a gold-plated mani, tbh.

Marcel Somerville

In completely brand new information - Marcel was in the 90s band Blazin Squad. WE KNOW RIGHT. He's so modest about that sort of thing.

We all had a Montana Brown phase. Once. Now it's a miracle if we brush our hair on a morning.

CHLOE... ERR, IS THAT YOU?! With a short brown pixie crop and a normal sized lips, we honestly had to do a double take.
