Josie Gibson is looking for the next Big Brother winner

Josie Gibson is heading to the auditions for the new 2011 series of Big Brother today.

But the Big Brother 11 winner won't be vying to get back into the house - she'll be going to meet would-be contestants with a cameraman instead.

'BIG BROTHER Auditions are at Emirates stadium Saturday, I can't wait to meet you all. I'll be filming so make sure u do your hair. X,' Josie, 26, Tweeted on Wednesday. 

The first round of auditions for the show, which will air for the first time on Channel 5 later this summer, kicked off in Manchester last week and move down to London today and tomorrow.

The hopefuls will move in to the house in Elstree, Hertfordshire, which is currently under refurbishment to give it a brand new look.

'For the house to work it has to have a mixture of characters,' Executive Producer Katy Smith tells the Daily Express.

'We are trying to make it a bit more authentic and would love to find a few more naïve characters, who are not all about fame and money.

'Our message this year is "be yourself".'
