Big Brother is back, and the new season is set to be controversial

It's almost that time of year again!

Nope, not summer, it's Big Brother season.

This year, the veteran reality TV show is taking a more political turn, selecting guests who will give an 'alternative' view of Britain. 

'At a time of political upheaval and tough questions about unity in the UK, Big Brother brings you an alternative look at Britain,' a spokesperson told Digital Spy.

'Summer of contrasts, conflicts and collaborations and more fireworks than you could imagine, as a selection of people, from a range of backgrounds, come together in the ultimate social experiment.'

'The United Kingdom of Big Brother… and everyone is welcome.'

It sounds like it's going to be a pretty explosive series to say the least. 

The new season starts on Channel 5 next month.
