Twelve VIPs will be checking into an experience like no other at Big Brother’s first-ever luxury hotel, where they will receive “rock star treatment” with a Big Brother twist.

While a dozen stars will walk in, only one will walk away with $100,000 for their nominated charity. As for who will win? Well, that’s up to viewers of course.

In the latest trailer for the season, Jessika Power claimed that Aussie cricket legend Shane Warne once slipped into her DMs.

“It was even weirder when I had Shane Warne in my inbox the other week. He’s a freak. Some of the things he was sending me, I’m like ‘inappropriate’,” she said.

Thomas Markle Jnr also shared insights about his tumultuous relationship with half-sister Meghan, where he dished on her first marriage.

“The guy she was married to the first time, she just walked all over him and dumped him. Harry’s on the chopping block next!”

Caitlyn Jenner also reflected on her incredible life and career, where she said: “I won Olympic decathlon gold, I grew up with the Kardashian crew, I won Glamour’s Woman of the Year… I’ve gone through a lot in my life. That’s an understatement.”

Opening up to her fellow housemates, Caitlyn also spoke about the trial of OJ Simpson, who was acquitted of the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.

“Oh, the OJ trial. Obviously, he did it and he got away with it. I was at Nicole’s house two days before the murder.”

Thrilling moments and shock revelations are forecast when Big Brother VIP premieres on Channel 7 and 7plus on November 1.
