Celebrity Big Brother returns to our screens in January and has undergone a dramatic transformation, just in time for its latest celeb victims

While we’ve been decorating the house with Christmas lights, trees and tinsel, the Celebrity Big Brother house has gone all evil and transformed into a Twisted Fairytale world, prepared to haunt its new housemates in January.

Channel 5 has just released a new bunch of photographs which show off the spine-chilling décor which has got us all excited for the show’s return.

Speaking to Now, Big Brother’s Bit On The Side host Rylan Clark couldn’t contain his excitement at the spooky fairytale house.

He said: ‘We’ve got many tricks up our sleeves and I can confirm that there won’t be a happily ever after ending, let’s put it that way!’

Gone are the minimalist furnishings of last year as the lavish new house is packed full of fur throws, satin pillows, Gothic designs and ornate dining chairs – there’s even a giant key lying on the dining table that opens God knows what!

With glittering chandeliers, a grand banquet table fit for the celeb Kings and Queens and a Snow White-esque magic mirror wall with the inscription ‘Who in this land is the fairest of all?’ you can be certain that the new CBB house will see its fair share of dramatic brawls.

Meanwhile, CBB’s presenter Emma Willis has hinted at the stellar lineup that will be entering the house, saying that it will be ‘one of the best ever series of the show’.

She added: ‘I have such high hopes for the series – that’s how good I think it’s going to be.’

The rumour mill has been churning in recent weeks with names like Keith Chegwin, Katie Price, Danniella Westbrooke and Katie Hopkins being thrown about but nobody, as yet, has been confirmed.

X Factor and I’m a Celeb’s Jake Quickenden is also rumoured to be going for a reality TV hattrick with current odds at him winning CBB at 4-1!

Whatever happens, this celebrity kingdom promises to be the best one yet. But will the celebrities live happily ever after?

* Celebrity Big Brother returns on 7 January at 9pm on Channel 5.
