The Celebrity Big Brother 2014 housemate line up has been revealed this evening, with the stars entering the house for what could be a three week stay.
Most of the long-rumoured line turned out to be correct, but there were some surprises that bosses had kept well hidden.
Amongst the twelve celebs were the much-expected suspects, such as TOWIE’s Sam Faiers, Made In Chelsea’s Ollie Locke and TV host Jim Davidson.
However, they were joined by singer Linda Nolan, model Casey Batchelor and actor Lionel Blair, while Aussie soap star Alan Fletcher was nowhere to be seen.
So just who is on Celebrity Big Brother 2014? Well if you missed this year’s launch show, or have already forgotten their names, here’s a recap…
Celebrity Big Brother housemates

A special twist in tonight’s live launch show saw the twelve celebs enter in pairs, handcuffed together.
And Big Brother refused to reveal to both them and us just when the stars will be free to undo their chains and get their own personal space.
Well, as much personal space as you can get when you’re in a house with 45 cameras filming your every move for a TV show.
