    Actually, now that I've watched it I've decided the promo is a tribute to La Trec in the Stay video.

    So early? Maybe the time bomb twist is that it'll now just stay on forever, with housemates coming and going and no end point at all :o

    NO :( That trailer looks really good :(

    I got away with watching NONE of last series and thought the curse was broken.

    In my experience, if you miss the opening night, you're usually safe. When you've missed that spectacle, the rest of it slips by unnoticed.

    That said, I have no intention of missing it.

    I really don't have the time for this in my tv schedule currently. I still fully intend to squeeze it in.

    They've released photos and information about the housemates early for the first time ever (presumably to avoid the usual tabloid leaks in the days before), and here they are.

    Are The Star not the only tabloid interested in the civilian Big Brother these days? Don't see why they've done that if that's the case.

    I'm liking the look of Eileen (the one in Big Brother seems alright too, etc)

    OMG a (quite) hot (presumably) gay one

    A qualified beauty therapist, Aaron, who's from Northampton, is a huge fan of The Little Mermaid.

    THIS ONE seems to be a hate figure among theatre performers, if #abusedbysimongross is anything to go by

    I like the look of this one too though

    Described as a "salt of the earth Yorkshire lass", Doncaster-based office administrator Chloe says that she loves the Spanish seaside resort of Benidorm, where she claims she's treated "like a local celebrity". Oh, and she described Big Brother as "a gap year for chavs".

    Overall, despite not being a huge departure from the usual Channel 5 line-up, I think they seem quite promising.

    Eileen contestant looks like Gillan Anderson having survived acid being thrown on her face, and fabulous with it. And the more gays the better - at least 6 would be far more interesting (but still stick to just the one token unstable lesbian formula of course).

    The teenage Tory councillor (not a proper one) looks, unsurprisingly, like a right cunt.

    After how much CBB was, I'm tempted to try this.

    Simon is clearly an absolute cunt. I want utterly vile, vicious queenery, sitting in the smoking area pouring SPITE on the fellow housemates.

    (I would hate-fuck Joel, to my complete chagrin)

    This starts tonight, and it feels like there's no buzz about it at all :(

    C5 left it far too late to start the advertising campaign, sadly. They barely had a concrete start date in mind before the launch date was pushed out completely out of the blue to most.

    Ultimately, this keeps things ticking over until the celebrity edition for them, but it is by no means a priority.

    That said, I'm quite looking forward to it starting, but expect a flurry of "Big Brother flops" stories in the coming days when the disappointing ratings roll in tomorrow morning.

    Can't wait for this. Although I'll have to wait for the end of my exam tomorrow to start watching anything.

    I'm going to watch the launch until I can't bear the sight of them any longer.

    I was starting to wonder if I had Ricki Lake on.

    Oooh, oooh!
    Oooh, oooh!

    Not sure if it's the early housemate reveal or what but for the first time I just DON'T THINK I CARE.

    It's barely even trending. Just cancel the main show. We only want CBB.

    Yeah, I'm watching but these housemates are doing nothing for me so far. It appears to be this evil Simon one up next though, so maybe it'll pick up?

    #BBSIMON is the type of queen that sets gay rights back 20 minutes.
