'Celebrity Big Brother' producers have teased some new housemates will enter the house during Friday night's (13.01.17) eviction show

The 'Celebrity Big Brother' house is set to get some new housemates.

The show has been thrown into chaos after American singer Ray J and DJ Brandon Block left the famous abode in less than 48 hours of each other and it has now been confirmed that they will be replaced by brand new housemates.

An advert, which aired during one of the breaks of Thursday night's (12.01.17) show, says the new housemates would be revealed during Friday night's (13.01.17) eviction show.

The advert promised that what is expected to be three housemates will join the house for a "weekend from hell" as they "fight for survival" with the current residents.

No names have yet to be confirmed but Nicola McLean's husband Tom Williams has hinted he may enter the house amidst his wife's budding friendship with footballer Jamie O'Hara.

He tweeted: "Bro these housemates aren't ready for me #notonmylevel. (sic)"

And Stephen Bear - who won last year's series - has fuelled speculation he may be one of the celebrities to enter the house after he shared a video of his ex-housemate James Whale speaking on 'Big Brother's Bit on the Side', where he said he had to "suffer three weeks with Bear".

Meanwhile, Brandon left the house as he "wasn't feeling himself" whilst Ray J was suffering from extreme toothache.

In a statement made after his release, Brandon said: "I was incredibly honoured to have the experience it was wonderful, but I wasn't feeling myself. May the best man or woman win."

And Ray J claimed he had been "complaining about his tooth" for three days before he was allowed to go to hospital.

He shared: "I have a bad tooth problem ... I've been complaining about my tooth for three and a half days. It got to the point where some of the housemates in the house felt like I was being ignored. We took petitions to say we're not doing anymore tasks until Ray J's tooth gets fixed.

"I've got a cracked tooth where I need a filling fixed. I've got a gum coming over my other tooth and I'm in a lot of pain. So after three and a half days with all this pain, they decided to take me out but I blacked out. I end up in the hospital."
