Production

Format

On 31 July 2015, it was confirmed that the series would follow a "UK vs USA" theme, with Channel 5 teasing that "the housemates will will feel far from home as there will be plenty of surprises along the way. Our patriotic celebrities will need to be very competitive as UK and USA is pitted against each other in an epic trial of tasks, challenges and twists." It is the first celebrity series to feature a prominent theme throughout, similar to the civilian series' themes.

Bit on the Side

On 31 July 2015, it was revealed that Rylan Clark will continue to host the spin-off show Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side, and that it would be returning to it's original broadcast format of seven days a week.

Live feed

On 14 August 2015, it was announced that an hour of live feed would be broadcast every weeknight during the series on 5*; the most live feed offered during a series since the show's move to Channel 5.

Pre-series

House

The House was redecorated following the sixteenth civilian series, which concluded in July; the first time that a summer celebrity series' House has been fully redecorated and changed significantly from the previous civilian series since it's move to Channel 5 - mainly due to the change of theme and the longer gap between the two shows than usual. The House will be decorated with British and American iconography to fit the "UK vs USA" theme.

Eamonn Holmes

On Day 27, presenter and regular Bit on the Side panelist Eamonn Holmes entered the House as part of the "Battle of the Nations" game show task, which saw Team UK and Team USA answer questions about their fellow housemates and events inside the House based on a viewer opinion poll.

President and Prime Minister

Every week, a competition saw Team UK and Team USA battle it out to win power over the House. Whichever team won, decided whether a President or Prime Minister would rule the House. On Day 2, as new housemates, only Bobby and Janice could compete to become President or Prime Minister. On Day 10, after Team USA won the task, the American housemates voted for who they wanted to become President.

Notes

  • : As Team USA won a task on Day 10, they were granted the right to nominate as Scoop became President of the House. In addition, as Team USA won, Team UK will not be allowed to nominate and will be the only ones able to be nominated. Later that day, President Scoop was forced to make a killer nomination against one Housemate, meaning they would automatically face the public vote. On Day 11, Team USA then collectively decided three more Housemates who would also face the public vote with Chris. They chose Bobby, Gail, and Stevi & Chloe-Jasmine.
  • : This week, the Housemates nominated face-to-face. However, in a twist, the public were voting to fake evict rather than to save, with the two Housemates receiving the most votes fake evicted and moved into a secret Luxury Suite. In a further twist, the other Housemates will be made aware of this, unbeknownst to the residents of the Suite.
  • : As residents of the Luxury Suite, Farrah and Jenna are immune from nominations, and will be in control of who will face the public vote. However, unbeknownst to them, whoever they believe to have nominated for eviction will be immune from the public vote. The Housemates in the main house will be made aware of this and will have to try and get nominated in order to be immune from the next eviction, and whoever is not chosen will face the public vote.
  • : This week all Housemates automatically faced the public vote. The four Housemates with the most votes will be saved, while the five remaining Housemates will be subject to an eviction twist. The four saved housemates (Austin, James, Natasha and Stevi & Chloe-Jasmine) had to pick one of the five remaining housemates (Bobby, Farrah, Janice, Jenna and Sherrie) to save from eviction. Natasha saved Sherrie, James saved Janice, Stevi & Chloe-Jasmine saved Bobby and ultimately Austin chose to evict Farrah thus saving Jenna from eviction.
  • : In addition to finding out who was nominated on Day 25, Housemates were also shown who nominated them.
  • : For the final two days, the public were voting to win rather than to save.
