Big Brother is on a Power Trip when it returns on Thursday

The Big Brother house is back and ready for its next batch of contestants ahead of the launch of the new series on Thursday, June 5.

It has been stripped of much of its furniture, but includes a high-tech touch pad that scans housemates’ hands before they are allowed in the diary room.

There is also an interactive LED wall that will change each week to reflect who is nominated for eviction, a swimming pool and a pod set high above the garden letting contestants spy on their housemates on the ground.

The house is also packed with mirrors with cameras behind each one to follow the contestants every move.

Emma Willis is returning as the host of the Channel 5 show with a live special to welcome the new housemates.
