But Emma was able to confirm that Rachel Johnson, sister of Boris, would be entering the house, and added that she does have some influence over who enters the house.

She said: "I never get a say. I kind of run the show for the 90 minutes we’re on air and then the person in my ear is running the show really. I have zero say.

"But I can suggest because they say if you can think of anyone, just send us a text and let us know. They were working on housemates up until quite late because they wanted to get it 100% perfect. I found out just before Christmas."

EEK we can't WAIT to find out who will be going in the house this year!
