CBB will return for season 19 in January 2017, but which celebrities are rumoured housemates?
Celebrity Big Brother is set for another season of unlikely romances, very likely arguments and outrageous antics.
For CBB 2017, it is rumoured Channel 5 will run a ‘Gold Stars vs New Stars’ edition of the reality show.
But which of our favourite celebrities are rumoured to become housemates again in January? And which celebrities will become contestants for the first time?
From Katie Hopkins to Heidi and Spencer, the rumoured line-up has as ever, a strange mix of stars for series 19.
The 30-year-old stepdaughter of Paul Gascoigne has already appeared on Celebrity Love Island, Celebrity Coach Trip AND The X Factor.
And now, it seems she’s going into the most famous house in the country for the Gold Stars vs New Stars series.
Katie Price, Stephen Bear and Sam Thompson join the 2017 Celebrity Big Brother rumoured line-up for the Gold Stars Vs New Stars series
“She’s sorting everything out, booking all of her hair and beauty treatments so she looks her best.”
The source added: “Bianca makes great TV because she’s got a big personality and isn’t afraid of speaking her mind.”
Speidi, originally of The Hills fame, first took part in CBB UK in 2013.
Married pair Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt joined Claire Richards and Ryan Moloney in the house for the 11th series, and came out second place in the competition after This Morning presenter Rylan Clark.
And now it’s rumoured the US-based couple will return for the All Star series of Celebrity Big Brother.
Reality TV star king Stephen Bear is rumoured to be returning to the Big Brother house.
He won the summer 2016 edition of the show, so it’s only right he re-enters the house for the star studded line-up.
Considering Stephen, who first found fame on Shipwrecked, took part in Ex on the Beach in 2015 and again in 2016, we can’t see the 26-year-old having a problem with tackling the Channel 5 show again.
Who could forget the first time former Apprentice contestant Katie Hopkins took part in the reality show?
In January 2015, the controversial public figure offended just about everyone in the house, especially Keith Chegwin and Perez Hilton.
Could the columnist be back again to cause an All Star stir? Rumour has it Katie is set for a Celebrity Big Brother return this January.
Move over Katie, because Nick Bateman was the original Big Brother bad guy.
Better know as Nasty Nick now, Bateman joined the first series in 2000, and earned himself a reputation for lying and playing the other contestants against each other in a bid to win the show.
After being caught trying to influence nominations, Nasty Nick was booted off.
He returned in 2010 to take part in the Ultimate Big Brother, and six years on, it’s rumoured he will be heading back into the house once more.
His wife Ola Jordan is currently taking part in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, so it’s fair James takes on his share of reality TV, right?
And it wouldn’t be the first time, as he entered CBB the first time two years ago.
An insider told The Sun: “Channel 5 approached James with a six figure deal.
“The producers loved how feisty he was when he appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2014 and they know he won’t hold back.”
Loose Women regular Katie Price is no stranger to reality TV, having taken part in Celebrity Big Brother before in 2015.
In January 2015, she came in as a latecomer to the show, and ending up stealing the crown.
During her time in the house, she shut down controversial housemate Katie Hopkins, which made for great viewing. Could they go head to head again in January 2017?
2015 was obviously a fiery year for Celebrity Big Brother, as celebrity blogger Perez Hilton is rumoured to make a comeback too.
The 38 year old joined Katie Hopkins and Katie Price in the January 2015 edition of the show, and was the seventh contestant to be evicted.
And now he’s be thought to be returning for the All Star vs Gold Star CBB.
Jasmine Lennard first came into the public eye in 2005 as a finalist on Make Me a Supermodel, and later joined the reality show in August 2012 — and she was the first housemate to be voted out.
10 years later, she went into the house again, that time around with civilians, so producers clearly appreciate her power to pull in viewer.
But could the outspoken star be back again for a third time?
The French model famously appeared Celebrity Big Brother back in 2014 where she notoriously wound up her housemates.
She spectacularly clashed with Will and Grace actor Leslie Jordan which resulted in Frenchy taking a pair of scissors to his underwear!
A source told The Daily Star: “She wants to make a serious impact on the house so she’s planning all kinds of tricks to wind them up,” so if Frenchy does appear, she won’t come quietly!
Who could forget the X Factor 2016 duo Bratavio?
After leaving the Live Shows after just one week, Bratavio are rumoured to be entering the CBB house for 2017.
“I think we’d like to do Big Brother because we’ve got a lot more to show people and we were judged a lot on The X Factor,” the pair told Digital Spy.
And considering their antics on the ITV show, from fighting over raw chicken to pushing one another into a pool, we’re sure Celebrity Big Brother bosses have noted they’d make great entertainment.
If we can’t get the Kardashians themselves in the Big Brother house, then we will certainly take their best pals.
Malika Haqq works as a model and actress, but is most known now for her appearance on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Khloe Kardashian’s pal is rumoured to be entering the house for 2017.
In summer 2016, Kim Kardashian’s best friend Jonathan Cheban joined CBB. Spot a trend?
He said he’d love to do the show, and he wouldn’t be the first Made In Chelsea star to enter the CBB house, as Ollie Lock joined the show in 2013.
But could Sam Thompson be a contestant on CBB for 2017?
We know we wouldn’t mind seeing him in the house…
