The show's producers have promised "unwelcome surprises" for the stars, while revealing "the BB garden has been transformed into a Whitechapel style foggy street scene with a Victorian pub snug".
Former Apprentice candidate James Hill won Celebrity Big Brother last year, beating American Austin Armacost, best known for being the ex-boyfriend of designer Marc Jacobs.
