The new series of Celebrity Big Brother will have an ‘An of the Storm’ theme, Channel 5 has confirmed, and teased “All of the celebrity names entering the house will have been caught up in their own media storm,”.
Emma Willis will host the series again, with Rylan Clark-Neal returning to front spin-off show Bit On The Side.
Rumours are circulating about who might be lining up to take part in the new series of the show – here’s the full list of rumoured housemates.
Could the half-sister of the new Duchess of Sussex really be heading into the Celebrity Big Brother house? American Samantha Markle, 53, claimed to have raised Meghan for 12 years, and recently revealed she’s writing an autobiography called The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister.
She has made a number of TV appearances recently, including on Loose Women and This Morning.
According to The Sun online, adult star Stormy, real name Stephanie Clifford, is being wooed by Channel 5 bosses.
The adult movie star hit international headlines with her claims about her past relationship with US president Donald Trump, so would sure to have some interesting tales to tell in the house.
According to The Sun Online, the Hollywood actress will be joining the line up.
Insiders told us Kirstie was the biggest name they’d secured and that she’d be sure to speak her mind in the house. The 67-year-old actress, known for roles on Cheers and Star Trek, would be one of Celebrity Big Brother’s biggest ever stars if she enters the house next month.
Former Towie star Dan’s news didn’t sit well with his wife Jacqueline Jossa, who made her feelings perfectly clear on the matter.
And that could all be down to the fact she might not be the biggest fan of one of his fellow housemates.
Despite this, Dan is signed up and a source told The Sun online that he couldn’t wait to get into the house.
Ryan Thomas is tipped to be the latest Corrie star to take up residence in the Elstree bungalow – although given he’s already survived The Island With Bear Grylls CBB should potentially be a breeze.
The 80s singer is a popular face on reality TV, so could be next on the list for producers. But her diva demands are plenty, with Sinitta saying of a possible stint: “I want a swearing ban, because I don’t swear.
“I asked for a bodyguard who would stand with me at all times, especially when I’m asleep”.
The former Blue Peter and This Morning host is in talks to take part in the Channel 5 show according to national reports.
It is not the first time that the former Wheel of Fortune host has been offered the opportunity to appear on the show, with reports stating that he turned down the chance in 2017 after being offered £75,000 to take part.
According to reports in The Sun, a source said: “Producers for the show are particularly keen on signing John. They have tried previously but they are hopeful they can convince him to sign up.
The Daily Star Sunday claims that CBB producers are desperate to secure Deal Or No Deal host Noel, 69, with a show insider saying: “Noel is one of the most recognisable faces on the box.
“He’s been a household name for decades and producers know he is someone who viewers will be interested in.
“He isn’t someone who can be easily convinced to do a reality show, but they’re doing their best to get him to sign on the dotted line.”
Georgia May Foote
The former Corrie actress was a big hit when she appeared on Strictly Come Dancing in 2015, making it all the way to the final – could a spot on Celebrity Big Brother follow? Bosses are reportedly keen to sign her up.
Katie Price’s estranged husband Kieran Hayler has been approached by bosses about a possible appearance.
The Sun Online exclusively revealed that this year’s theme is retribution and the show’s bosses think Kieran would be perfect.
It comes after Kieran was caught cheating on Katie with their children’s nanny, Nikki Brown, and her bridesmaid Jane Pountney.
The former Love Islander is also being eyed for a spot in the house – which could potentially lead to fireworks following rumours that she and Dan Osbourne became close as he reportedly battled relationship woes with Jacqueline Jossa.
Jonathan Van Ness
Queer Eye’s flamboyant grooming expert is indeed being tipped for a spot on Celebrity Big Brother. ‘Bosses know what a hit Queer Eye has become and everyone’s obsessed with Jonathan,’ an insider revealed. ‘The show has become an international success and Jonathan would make amazing TV for the show.’
Transgender model Talulah-Eve had been all set to go into the house in January but reportedly pulled out at the last minute after India Willoughby signed up for the series. She was also rumoured to be taking part in 2017, so we reckon this one is long overdue – and rumour suggests it could finally happen.
Celebrity Big Brother returns for its twenty-second series to Channel 5 in August.
