Production

Format

On 7 December 2015, it was revealed that the series would have a much "grittier undertone". A statement from Channel 5 also announced that "as ever the celebrities will be called to the Diary Room to nominate. Not everyone will be present in the final act, but who will make the curtain call and take the final bow? You decide."

It was confirmed that live evictions would be broadcast in two parts, similar to Channel 4 evictions from 2000 to 2010.

Bit on the Side

On 7 December 2015, it was revealed that Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side will continue to be hosted by Rylan, this time under his new married name, Rylan Clark-Neal.

It was also confirmed that Bit on the Side will return to airing on weeknights only on Channel 5, after also appearing on weekends on 5* in the summer series.

Live feed

It was announced that live feed would return for the seventeenth series, with an hour of live feed broadcast every weeknight on 5*.

Sponsorship

For the first time since Celebrity Big Brother 1 in 2001, the series had no sponsorship. It is unknown whether a deal will be confirmed and a sponsor confirmed during the series run.

Pre-series

House

In a statement from Channel 5, they teased that "the famous House has undergone a major costume change, and Housemates will be transported to a striking and theatrical setting which echoes the vaudeville theatres of a bygone era. As they take their cue to enter the House, the celebrities will descend down a majestic staircase, leading to glamorous rooms made up of rich opulent textures and packed with intriguing curiosities."

They also teased that "the BB garden has been transformed into a Whitechapel style foggy street scene with a Victorian pub snug which will provide a hidden corner for sharing secrets and backstage backstabbing."

Days Lasted Task Reward Result
Day 1 – Day 2 Furniture from each room in the House was boxed up on launch night. John and Darren volunteered to enter the housemate box and had to remain there until they were unlocked. Danniella later volunteered to enter the box in order to unlock the bedroom for the rest of the housemates. In a mini-task, Jeremy, Scotty T and Stephanie voted themselves the most annoying and therefore were given the task find the right keys to fit the locks for areas of the House, out of 1,500 random keys. Unlock the House Passed
Day 5 David was asked to produce a talent show and had to pick who would perform what. Angie was given the role of presenter. Christopher, Danniella, Darren, Gemma, Megan and Stephanie all sang. Jeremy and Scotty T, and John and Kristina, both danced a routine each. As the judges, it was then Jonathan, Nancy and Tiffany's decision on which housemate was the most talented. Stephanie
Day 6 Housemates were asked to line up in front of a row of podiums containing presents and were told that their present could be ejected from its podium at any time over many hours. Each person that caught their flying present would receive what was inside. They were unaware that Jonathan had already secretly chosen who would get what present; some being nice and some being bad. During the task, Tiffany won immunity from the next eviction, Nancy won incarceration and John was told he would have to make his next nominations face-to-face. Presents Christopher,

At the end of the task it was revealed they had failed. Big Brother then gave a lifeline giving the opportunity for either the puppeteers or the puppets to have a luxury budget based on which team pressed a button the quickest. The puppets were the quickest. Luxury Shopping Budget Christopher,

Notes

  • : As a consequence of a task Jeremy, Scotty T and Stephanie were solely responsible for deciding who should face the first eviction. On Day 4, it was revealed that Kristina received the most votes to save. Following this, Nancy and Winston were subject to a house vote on who should be evicted. Nancy received just one vote to evict (from Jeremy), whilst Winston received the remaining thirteen votes to evict.
  • : On Day 6, during a task, Tiffany won immunity from the next round of nominations and John was told he'd have to make his next nominations face-to-face.
  • : On Day 11, eviction survivors Angie, Gemma, Jeremy and Stephanie had to give one killer nomination each.
  • : These nominations were face-to-face. Everyone who received at least one nomination faced eviction.
  • : Big Brother announced that there would be no nominations this week, instead all housemates would automatically face eviction unless they earn immunity. Gemma, Stephanie and Darren won immunity and the remaining housemates faced the public vote.
  • : Only the "pure" housemates chosen by Gillian McKeith were required to give nominations.
  • : On Day 26, Stephanie was allowed to make a killer nomination due to all other housemates breaking rules regarding discussing nominations.
  • : This week the public were voting to win, not to save.
