Celebrity Big Brother 2011 sources have teased a "major twist" with this year's house, suggesting that while on the face of it the housemates may be living in "pure luxury", not all is as it seems! Show insiders have revealed this year's house will treat the stars to the "exuberant experience ever"…
This is going to be a house that viewers and housemates have never encountered before. Think of the most exuberant experience ever, with luxury goods and furnishings.
It's a house that is being built as a real home-from-home for those who are used to the finer things in life and it's going to be pure luxury.
"It is being especially designed to encourage good times.
The designers of the house – which is said to be still under construction – are said to have been inspired by the decadent lives of the ancient Greeks and Romans.
It's a house in the lap of luxury – a house of the gods.
However – as always- there's a "major twist" in store from Big Brother.
Celebrity Big Brother stars on Channel 5 on August 18. Stars lined up for the series include Jedward, Kerry Katona and singer Sonia.
A survey has named the top 10 housemates viewers apparently want to see in Celebrity Big Brother this year – with former Big Brother babe Imogen Thomas coming out on top! She's closely followed by reality star and former model Katie Price, while ex-Big Brother host Davina McCall completes the top 3.
Imogen found herself back on the front pages of the tabloids earlier this after it was claimed she was having an affair with married football player Ryan Giggs. The former Miss Wales had originally appeared on Big Brother back in 2006, alongside Nikki Grahame and Pete Bennett.
The poll – conducted by money saving website MyVoucherCodes – asked what celebs people wanted to see enter the house when Celebrity Big Brother returns to Channel 5 later this month.
Sister to the Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton also made the top 10, although we can't help but feel a lot of viewers were just hoping to see her bum in a bikini…
Others opted to vote for Ashley Cole, with the England star fifth on the list. Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner and The Apprentice star Lord sugar also made the top 10, with the latter having reportedly turned down an ambitious offer from Channel 5 to take part.
Lauren Goodger was the only TOWIE star to make the top 10, despite reports suggesting offers had been given to her co-stars Amy Childs and Mark Right.
Lady GaGa and Ryan gigs completed the list, below:
1. Imogen Thomas 2. Katie Price 3. Davina McCall 4. Pippa Middleton 5. Ashley Cole 6. Hugh Hefner 7. Alan Sugar 8. Lauren Goodger 9. Lady Gaga 10. Ryan Giggs
