Emma Willis, who will return to host the Channel 5 reality TV show, has already hinted of a ‘stellar’ line-up for the coming series, which begins in January.

“This is going to be one of the best ever series of the show,” she told Digital Spy. “I have such high hopes for the series – that’s how good I think it’s going to be. You won’t not recognise anybody if it stays like this. This year seems like a proper stellar cast and that’s always great to watch.”
