Celebrity Big Brother 2018 kicked off in January with an all-female line-up of eight housemates.
The first batch, who entered the house, were all women to mark the centenary of the female vote in 1918.
However, eight male contestants joined the eight females in the CBB house after just a few days
There has already been two evictions – including a double exit – which saw transgender newsreader India Willoughby, journalist Rachel Johnson and detective Maggie Oliver booted off the show.
Here’s the full list of all the CBB 2018 contestants and who has been evicted so far.
CBB 2018 contestants
Controversial ex Tory MP Ann Widdecombe was the first to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Sources exclusively revealed to the Mirror Online that the 70-year-old was a last minute signing.
Known for her controversial and divisive opinions, the former Tory politician is pro Brexit and has made it clear she isn’t a fan of reality stars.
During her time in parliament she opposed the legality of abortion, inflamed the LGBT community after voting against lowering the age of consent and gave her support for the re-introduction of the death penalty.
She entertained viewers of Strictly Come Dancing in series 8 of the dancing show in 2010. Ann was the ninth celebrity to be eliminated from the competition with her professional dance partner Anton Du Beke.
In January 2017, Ann appeared on Sugar Free Farm, alongside the likes of Alison Hammond, Stavros Flatley and Gemma Collins.
Khloe Kardashian’s best pal Malika Haqq, 34, crossed the pond to move into the famous house for her CBB stint.
Malika, who has been close friends with Khloe Kardashian since they were 15, is believed to have been paid a “huge amount” to appear on the show.
This comes after Kim’s close pal, Jonathan Cheban, entered CBB in 2016 but ended up quitting after life in the house became too much.
Malika used to be Khloe’s PA but now appears on a number of reality TV series including Real Husbands of Hollywood, Dash Dolls and Hollywood Divas. She is also a brand ambassador of Pretty Little Things.
Her entrance into the CBB house has come at a perfect time for Kardashian fans, who will hope that Malika will let slip some gossip on the sisters’ pregnancies.
Ashley, 30, is a model, presenter and DJ, living in London.
She has her own show on Hoxton Radio every Friday and has bee nominated for a number of awards.
Ashley rose to fame after appearing on E4 reality show Made in Chelsea in 2013.
Ashley was spotted with the actor following his divorce from model Lara Stone in 2015.
It seems she may not be one to mess with in the house.
Jess, 28, was born in Wandsworth, London in March 1989.
She’s dabbled in reality TV as well as acting, having appeared in Dangerous Game alongside former CBB housemate Calum Best.
Jess is perhaps best known for appearing on MTV reality show Ex on the Beach.
And while there are many reports that she’s engaged to rugby star Denny Solomona, Mirror Online understands that she recently split from the sportsman.
The pair haven’t shared any pictures of videos of each other lately, and she isn’t wearing a ring on any of her recent snaps.
Jess has a legion of male admirers though and recently stripped completely naked for her 2018 calendar.
Sales will probably go through the roof thanks to her CBB stint.
Jess also dated US actor Charlie Sheen.
She spoke out about the relationship in 2016 after Twitter trolls branded her “the AIDs girl”.
The HIV positive star hung out with reality TV beauty Jess during a recent visit to London when he was promoting his new condom range, and she was subject to vile online abuse after they were pictured together.
Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday, she said: “I have had tweets calling me a slag and saying ‘now you’ve got HIV’. And other people were calling me ‘AIDs Girl’.”
Jess, who was treated to beauty treatments by the actor, admitted she had a soft spot for him and that they had been texting every day and video calling since he’d flown back to the US.
Aged 82, actress Amanda is the oldest ever CBB housemate.
Corrie fans will recognise her as Alma, who she played for more than two decades.
She is married to former journalist and novelist Hilary Bonner after coming out later in life.
Amanda has certainly been through the wars.
Aged just four when the Second World War broke out, she was obsessed with death as a child and ran away in her teens to be a London chorus girl.
Throughout her working life she suffered “tremendous anxiety” – and she spent years confused about her sexuality.
She dated Billy Fury in her early 20s, turning down his marriage proposal. Then in 1967, at 31, she wed theatre director Robin Hunter.

Dapper Laughs has had a controversial past, having had his TV show axed after joking about rape.
The funnyman, real name Daniel O’Reilly, is hoping to turn opinions around during his time on CBB.
Before his arrive, he had kept his close eyes on the 2018 series, tweeting on launch night: “Celebrating 100 years by giving them a house to run LOL CelebrityBigBrother you are jokes.”
Andrew came to fame late last year in The Apprentice 2017, and quickly got himself in the headlines for having a fling with contestant Anisa Topan.
CBB bosses had their eye on him because of his reputation as a ladies’ man, and wanted to make sure he’ll have his pick of attractive women.
“Andrew made quite the impact on the show and became known for his laddish behaviour after sleeping with Anisa,” a source told the Sun.
“He admits to always being a bit of a playboy and that he went on the Apprentice to have a laugh.
“Lord Sugar won’t be keeping his eye on him in the CBB house so he’ll be free to really enjoy himself.”
American singer Ginuwine – real name Elgin Baylor Lumpkin – may have been one of the top-selling R&B artists in the 1990s, but he’s a little better known for his many, many children.
The musician, 47, has fathered nine children with five women, and now Channel 5 producers are hoping his appearance in the house will spark more romance.
The former dancer, 68, is known for his career with the Royal Ballet. But, since retiring from the stage, he’s carved-out an impressive CV with reality TV jobs.
These have included the BBC’s The Real Marigold Hotel, Celebrity Masterchef and The Chase.

But she’s a veteran at reality telly, having launched her stage act on Australian Idol in 2003. She finished in 13th place.
Courtney describes herself as gender fluid and refers the pronoun they/them when not in drag.
Her entrance into the CBB house was extremely memorable as her entire skirt fell off, exposing her genitals.
Who has been evicted from CBB?
India Willoughby became the first contestant to be evicted from CBB 2018.
The transgender newsreader is a regular guest on This Morning and Loose Women and known for getting viewers talking.
She was born Jonathan Willoughby and presented ITV’s regional news in Carlisle for ten years as a man, before undergoing gender reassignment surgery in 2015.
India once told of the moment she knew she had to make the change, saying: “It was a job I loved a lot but unfortunately I had a secret. I was ignoring what I knew deep down, that I didn’t belong in that body.
“Growing up in the 1970s and 1980s I kept the secret deep within me. But in February 2010 I was interviewing a politician and caught sight of my reflection.
“I had slicked back hair, a sharp suit, and looked confident. Yet I stared at myself in disgust. This has got to stop, I thought. I need to be true to myself.”
She revealed that she felt suicidal in her old body and only avoided taking her own life by getting so drunk she passed out.
India has a teenage son named Rhodes.
It’s more than just the blonde gene and a sense for gaffe-making that binds the Johnson family together: after dad Stanley’s stint in the jungle, daughter Rachel – the sister of Boris Johnson – entered the CBB house.
The family that reality TVs together cleaves together, so it was journalist Rachel who was up next to put herself in the spotlight.
CBB announced on Christmas Eve the journalist was entering the house, tweeting: “We can confirm that journalist @RachelSJohnson will be one of the female Celebrity Big Brother housemates entering the House live at 9pm, Tuesday 2nd January on channel5_tv!”
Rachel is married to National Trust director Ivo Dawnay and has three children.

Nine men were convicted for their involvement in the sex ring which saw young women, one as young as 13, plied with alcohol and free food before being passed around for sex.
However, DC Oliver later resigned from Greater Manchester Police after claiming the force had failed the young victims and expressing concern about treatment of the vulnerable young women in the case.
