As the nation marked 100 years since women won the right to vote for the very first time, the latest CBB series was revealed to have an all-female cast of celebrity housemates in a salute to a centenary of women’s suffrage.

Viewers saw the likes of former politician Ann Widdecome, 70, Boris Johnson's sister Rachel, Ex On The Beach star Jess Impiazzi and Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Malika Haqq enter the famous compound.

All housemates made sure to champion this year's theme embracing strong women on their arrival, but it all became too much for Malika, 34, who broke down in tears just seconds before making her CBB debut. 

The house will have only four days of the all-women cast before they are joined by John, as Rylan revealed: 'As you know, Friday night, the house will receive some gentlemen. Tonight, I can reveal that one of those very men, will be Liverpool legend and rap superstar John Barnes is going in the house!'

Fans await further confirmation with baited breath yet rumours are swirling as it's claimed Love Island's divisive star Jonny will be making his return to reality TV following his stint on the ITV dating show in summer. 

He became something of a villain during his time in the villa when he was seen to break Camilla Thurlow's heart after kissing her and then revealing his views on feminism - which she deemed unacceptable. 

The bomb disposal expert was left both baffled and unimpressed when Jonny announced that he would  “feel emasculated if a girl paid for dinner” before asking her: 'You’re a feminist aren’t you?'
