The Celebrity Big Brother 2014 line up of housemates is almost full, so just who’s in Celeb Big Bro this year?
The new CBB lineup will again feature everyone from the usual Z-list glamour models to ex soap stars and TV presenters.
There’s been plenty of rumours and with now less than a week to go until the new series kicks off on Channel 5, the full line up has apparently been put together.
So who could be the latest bunch of Celebrity Big Brother housemates? Here’s our run down of the latest rumoured housemates.
Who’s on Celebrity Big Brother 2014 line up…
First up is Strictly Come Dancing star Nancy Dell’Olio who is reportedly in talks to enter the house, with negotiations over a £500,000 fee. She’s apparently keen to get back at ex Sven Goran Eriksson after comments he made about her and their relationship in his autobiography.
Then there’s N-Dubz rapper Dappy, with tabloid reports suggesting that the performer is set to agree a £100,000 deal with Channel 5 in a bid to avoid bankruptcy.
According to The Sun newspaper, the singer has been forced into taking part in the series to help pay off a tax bill.
Dappy seemed to confirm the speculation in a tweet over the weekend, writing online: “All ur gonna see is Nothing but the Realness!!!!! Had enough of certain groups of the media painting me out 2 be some vile monster!! #Watch”
Meanwhile TV chat show host Paul O’Grady has said he wants to enter Celebrity Big Brother 2014. The telly presenter revealed earlier this year he was only a recent fan of the show, having originally found it rather tacky.
“I never used to have a guilty pleasure until my sister came to stay,” he explained. “She said: ‘I have to watch Celebrity Big Brother.’ And I said: ‘I’m not having that rubbish on.’
“Twenty minutes later, I was hooked.”
This Morning and Twitter loudmouth Katie Hopkins, who rose to fame on The Apprentice, has been in the headlines more than she’s been out of them this year, so it’s no surprise to hear Channel 5 want her – and her controversial views – in the house.
Model Katie Price could join her. It’s perhaps surprising to learn that reality telly star Katie has never appeared on the show, but that could all soon change.
The Daily Mirror reports that she’s set to agree a six-figure deal to take part, which would make her one of the highest paid celebs to ever enter the house.
“It might surprise people that a star as big as Katie would consider Celeb BB,” a source told the tabloid. “But it seems she’s keen and it would be a great coup for Channel 5. It looks like it could happen this time.”
“Katie’s a colourful character, opinionated and still one of the most recognisable faces in the land. She’d be a massive hit.”
TOWIE’s Sam Faiers is another name linked to the latest series, following the appearance of her former fiance Joey Essex on I’m A Celebrity 2013. She’s rumoured alongside Blue singer Lee Ryan, who previously turned down a deal last series.
Then there’s model India Reynolds, a little known topless Page 3 girl who appears to be this year’s token Z-lister model.
Continuing to fill up the roles of token housemates is soap star Alan Fletcher, with the Aussie – who plays Dr Karl Kennedy on Neighbours – set to follow in the footsteps of co-star Ryan Maloney.
Other lesser known names that are being positively linked with the new series include Bollywood’s Tanishaa Mukherji having agreed a deal for Celeb Big Bro, according to gossip blogs.
Adding a bit more muscle to the CBB 2014 rumoured line up is boxer Evander Holyfield. The heavyweight fighter famously had part of his ear bitten off by Mike Tyson in arguably one of the sports most memorable fights in the 90s.
Completing the CBB rumours for now is comedian and TV presenter Jim Davidson, having originally been set to enter in January of this year (2013).
The former Generation Game host was forced to pull out at the last minute after being arrested over claims of alleged historic sexual abuse, of which it was confirmed in August he would face no charges over.
…and who’s not
A range of other celebs meanwhile have denied any involvement in Celebrity Big Brother.
Reality TV star and former X Factor USA host Khloe Kardashian had been one of the more hopeful rumours concerning next month’s Channel 5 series, but a spokesperson confirmed this week: “All reports are 100% not true.”
It’s the latest denial to come from a celeb about the series, with Khloe’s fellow American Kathy Griffin saying “no way” to Celebrity Big Brother in a tweet last week.
Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding also hit back at reports suggesting she would be entering the house come launch night, branding the CBB rumours “bulls**t in a rather angry tweet.
She wrote online: “errrr….ahahahahHaha!! what is this?… April f***in fools or Boxing Day?! Reaallly?!!! #bulls**t”
