Big Brother kicks off on Tuesday May 12 but viewers will have the chance to meet the housemates two days before the first live show.

It's the first time in the history of the show that housemates' identities will be revealed before they hit the Big Brother house for the first tiem.

The Big Brother Timebomb 48-hour countdown will start at midnight on Friday May 8 and the housemates will all be revealed at midnight on Sunday May 10.

This is two days before the live launch.

And we could see some familiar faces amongst them as presenters Rylan Clarke and Emma Willis have said previous housemates could return.

"With this series, time doesn't mean anything. We could also revisit any Big Brother series if we wanted to which means we could even see some familiar faces," said Rylan.

This Timebomb series will mess with the housemates' heads by controlling time, making days turn into nights, and stopping time, and even rewinding.  Tasks will also apparently get "turned on their heads".

"As an ex-housemate, I know that in the house, time is the only structure you have to your day. It's the only thing that keeps you sane in that house," said Rylan.

Irish viewers will be able to catch the show on TV3 and 3e.
