The wait is nearly over as Celebrity Big Brother gets set to return to UK television screens tonight (Monday, March 4) for the first time in nearly six years.

Big Brother returned to our screens in 2023 with Jordan Sangha winning the series.

The iconic reality show first aired on Channel 4 in 2000 where it stayed for 10 years before moving over to Channel 5 from 2011 to 2018.

In 2018 Big Brother was axed (along with the Celebrity version) but was rebooted on ITV with new hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best in 2023.

Following the successful return of Big Brother it was also confirmed late last year that the celebrity version of the show would be returning in 2024 with Odudu and Best hosting once again.

Previous contestants on Celebrity Big Brother include Rylan Clark (TV and radio presenter), Josie Gibson (I'm a Celeb and This Morning), Charlotte Crosby (Geordie Shore), Denise Welch (Loose Women) and Ryan Thomas (former Coronation Street actor).

But which celebrities will be entering the Big Brother house in 2024?
