Six new contestants join the house in this year's series of reality TV show Big Brother.

Filmed in Borehamwood, the show kicked off with its second live launch last night and the release of a further six housemates:

1. Chris Wright:Borehamwood Times:

Actor, and self-confessed "vanilla" housemate, Chris shocked viewers last night as he went for a sneaky kiss with presenter Emma Willis.

2. Toya A Washington:Borehamwood Times:

Video blogger Toya says she's not one to be messed with- evident form her motto: "Don't come for me unless I send for you."

3. Jale Karaturp:Borehamwood Times:

33-year-old Jale isn't afraid to voice her strong opinions, and loves to have a good rant.

4. Ashleigh Coyle:Borehamwood Times:

Former Miss Derry Ashleigh says she'll donate some of her winnings, should she win, to charity as well as buy a nice car and take her family on holiday.

5. Ash Harrison:Borehamwood Times:

The 26-year-old Manchester model has admitted to being a bit lazy- but thinks he still has what it takes to win.

6. Marlon Wallen:Borehamwood Times:

Marlon, and alter ego Marlicio Silver, classes himself as a bit of a wild boy and a definte ladies man.

Sixteen housemates have now joined the Big Brother house- with Helen Wood receiving an automatic place in this year's final thanks to Pauline.

The show, on Channel 5, is back on TV screens tonight at 9.30pm.
