Season 1 of Celebrity Big Brother (US) will begin on 9GO! this Sunday.
The cast includes E! host Ross Matthews, former Cosby actress Keisha Knight Pulliam, Sugar Ray singer Mark McGrath and, notably, Omarosa Manigault, who was in The Apprentice prior to being briefly hired as as the director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison for the Trump administration. That should give the show plenty of headlines.
Whilst the Celebrity edition is long-running in the UK, it is a first in the US market, which has seen 19 of the regular editions.
Update: It premieres in the US on Thursday and will be fast-tracked to 9NOW same day.

What do you get when you cross 11 strangers with 1 house, 94 HD cameras and 113 microphones? The answer …
Big Brother, the ultimate social experiment. It’s returning to Aussie screens in epic proportions, bumping up the excitement levels with Celebrity Big Brother U.S., premiering this Sunday, February 11, at 8.30pm on 9GO!
Episodes will also be fast-tracked and available to watch the same day as the United States on 9NOW, starting today.
Australia will see Big Brother welcome the famous group of Housemates into his LA house, where they will face the classic game of tough competitions and heated evictions, all under the watchful eye of the Big Brother cameras.
Entering the Big Brother house for a month-long thrill ride are a chart-topping rock star, an American Pie alumnus actress, an NBA champion, a Real Housewife, a UFC legend, a Tony Award-winning actress, a model, a television personality, and a TV host, among others.
Recording their every move 24 hours a day, each week one or more of the celebrity Housemates will be voted out of the Big Brother house, with the last remaining Housemate receiving the grand prize of $250,000.
This group of well-known strangers may know what it’s like to be in the public eye, but are they ready to be monitored around-the-clock by Big Brother? Who will form alliances to stay in the house to avoid being nominated for eviction? What conversations will be shared when they feel like they are alone? And will they remember Big Brother is always watching?
8:30pm Sunday on 9GO! (contd. Mon – Thu 9:30pm).
