Big Brother has treated fans to their first look at this year’s unsuspecting housemates.

With only a weekend to go until the 2017 series kicks off – show bosses have unveiled the first six contestants.

Moving in to the famous TV bungalow is Louie Spence’s nephew, Miss Nigeria UK and a former Ex on the Beach star.

Meet the first batch:

Single Essex lad Lotan is a member of dance group Dreamboys – and is Luisa Zissman’s ex. The 28-year-old Pineapple Dance Studios star said, despite admitting that he’s “never not had attention from women”, he’s not at all arrogant, but in fact “cheeky and charming”.

This 28-year-old clothing concession manager from Wales wants to “prove that she’s successful and isn’t a bimbo”. She’s no stranger to reality TV having starred on Ex on the Beach with her ex, MTV bad boy Ashley Cain, and has warned viewers that she struggles to hold in her emotions.

Leeds-based entrepreneur Imran is married to fellow housemate Sukhvinder – who he met at school, aged 8. He is “self-made from the ghetto” and wants to show the UK what a modern Muslim looks like.

Sukhvinder, 38, has joined the show to represent “the black sheep of the communities”. An entrepreneur, like her husband, she believes her bluntness is her best personality trait and patience her worst, because she doesn’t have any.

This 25-year-old single mum prides herself on being a strong-willed woman who isn’t afraid to speak her mind and won’t be disrespected by anyone. Pick on her sister Hannah and feel her wrath.

Twenty-three year old Hanna is the current reigning Miss Nigeria UK who believes she was “born to be the centre of attention”. Tasks shouldn’t be a problem for the make-up store host as she “doesn't shy away or back down from a challenge”.

The unveiling comes days after fans got their first-look at this series’ decade-hopping house which features one luxury and one not-so-nice bedroom and a beauty parlour for a bathroom.

Channel 5 has promised a “must-watch culture clash” with “more fireworks than you could imagine”.

The new series will see a launch night shake-up with viewers voting for who they want to become fully-fledged housemates.

Emma Willis will present the main shows while Rylan Clark-Neal will resume his duties as host of spin-off programme Big Brother’s Bit on the Side.

Big Brother kicks off on Channel 5 on June 5 at 8:30pm.
