The exterior of the Celebrity Big Brother house is reminiscent of a Palm Springs desert retreat where the celebrities can relax in a garden of cacti, succulents and a brightly coloured mid-century modern design.

This year's Celebrity Big Brother is due to launch very soon, with a number of celebrities being rumoured to take part, including Meghan Markle's half-sister Samantha Markle. Samantha appeared on Good Morning Britain in July to talk about her father's health and the rumours that she will be appearing in the popular reality TV series. When she was asked about the TV series Samantha said, “I’ve worked in media most of my life, why would I not? Why would I stop living because I have a family issue going on? I don’t think she’s in intelligent enough to be able to separate the two, whether you’re a celebrity or a Royal, you have a high public profile and that’s subject to discussion within the media. " [sic]

Other rumoured celebrities include, last year's Love Island star Gabby Allen, footballer Jermaine Pennant and model Chloe Ayling.

We won't know the actual line-up until the celebrities enter the house on the 16th August, however Channel 5 has confirmed that, 'All of the celebrity names entering the house will have been caught up in their own media storm.
