Q&A with Emma Willis

Ahead of this year’s Celebrity Big Brother, host Emma Willis has opened up about what Big Brother has in store for us this year.

What’s different about the house this series?
Well, and this is very exciting, there’s a house within a house. That’s all I can say.

This year’s theme is ‘Eye of the Storm’. That sounds like there are some pretty amazing celebrities lined up?
Yes! When I heard a few of the names of the celebs coming on this year my jaw hit the floor! I think the theme is interesting because it is the eye of the storm so from what I believe we will see people who themselves have been in the eye of the storm be that either on the receiving or giving end. What will be really interesting is seeing the other side of the stories that we’ve not heard before.

What do you think of the new Eye logo?
I love it! I always think it must be difficult to keep creating a new eye logo but I really like this one, I love the neon.

What stands out for you from that past 18 years?
I think the fact that I’m still as addicted to Big Brother now as I was in the beginning speaks for itself. I’m always amazed by the mix of people that end up together in the house, on paper it doesn’t seem like it would work but it always ends up being brilliant. As well as a great selection of housemates, the tasks form a big part of Big Brother and quite often create the best moments in the house.

Do you still get a buzz from presenting CBB / BB?
Of course! I love Big Brother and I’m as addicted to the show now as I was 18 years ago. Even if I didn’t work on it I would still watch it every evening.
