And sparkly shiny new BB website launched by C5
As fans of BB will know, this year, we viewers get to vote in one Wildcard housemate, and we’ll get to meet the candidates at 8pm tomorrow night on Channel 5, which is of course an hour ahead of the so-excited-I-might-wee launch of BB13 at 9pm.

Job: Royal Mail
He says: “My friends all call me ‘weird’ and bullies have shouted: ‘Heil Hitler!’ at me. But I’m a positive creative person with a unique presence.”
Jamie East says: “He will divide the Big Brother house – and the viewers too.”
Location: Mumbai in India – and now the UK
Job: Hospital receptionist
He says: “I couldn’t be gay in India. It was hard not to mince. Now I can be myself. I am honest and love confrontation.”
Jamie East says: “He isn’t afraid to speak his mind and has some seriously strong opinions.”
Job: At uni studying community drama
She says: “I like a right good grub. I’ll even stuff food in my secret knickers. I’ve got more cellulite than a busted beach ball.”
Jamie East says: “She’s big, brash and ballsy. Perfect for a housemate.”
