Big Brother VIP is set to launch today with a whole bunch of famous faces heading into the compound.
This year’s star-studded line-up, which includes Caitlyn Jenner and Thomas Markle Jr, will be cooped up inside the new Big Brother’s VIP Hotel, which has been specially constructed at Sydney Olympic Park.
While the new series is set to run for the next 22 days, the majority of the show won’t actually be broadcast live as the show has been pre-recorded.

Why is Big Brother VIP Australia pre-recorded?
Big Brother presenter Sonia Kruger previously explained why Big Brother VIP is pre-recorded.
‘In the past, you would have 24 hours to turn an episode around, so the shows were live at the top and tail, but what you saw in the middle was recorded the day before,’ she told Sunrise last year.
‘So, if you had a quiet day or the weather was bad, you ended up with a slightly boring episode.
‘Because this was pre-recorded, we’ve had time to craft every single episode, so they’re jam-packed from start to finish.’
Makes sense, right?
If this year’s celebrity edition is anything like the civilian show that aired in April, then the finale will be live.
It will be up to the Australian public to crown a winner to take home the $100,000 (£55,000) cash prize for their chosen charities.
Can viewers in the UK watch Big Brother VIP?
Big Brother will be shown on Channel Seven and 7Plus, which means that UK viewers will need a VPN to watch it.
