Speaking on Emma Willis's Bit on the Side, Brian Dowling revealed that he would be hosting a live show at least twice every week until the end of the series.
Dowling hinted that there will be plenty of new star housemates to welcome in his live shows.
"I'm on twice a week every Wednesday and Friday. Lots of people, lots of evictions - Wednesday's the first eviction, so I'm looking forward to the first one," Dowling said.
Frankie Cocozza, Natasha Giggs, Natalie Cassidy and Michael Madsen were among those who entered the house tonight.
Celebrity Big Brother continues tomorrow night (Friday) at 9pm on Channel 5.
