Celebrity Big Brother 2017: Jedward join the All Star line up

Jedward have joined the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 house in tonight's live show.

The pair were a 'shock' addition to the line up, even if we did all know they were joining...


Jedward told host Emma Willis they hadn't been watching the show in order to go in "fresh".

The pair surprised the current housemates as they burst into a stage on the garden for a live singalong.

The twin duo, who first appeared on The X Factor in 2009, originally took part in the Celebrity Big Brother line up in 2011.

While Jedward did enjoy some success in the few years following, more recently their profile has become rather non-existent.

Could a spot on the Celebrity Big Brother All Stars line up turn things around?

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Love them or hate them, Jedward are compulsive viewing.


“And while some of the housemates are going to be familiar with them and what they’re like, the chances are the Americans will be in for a shock."

The source added: "It’s going to be great to see them getting to know Speidi – they think they’re the power duo of the house, but that could quickly change.”

Jedward join the other 15 celebrities on this year's line up, made up of a mix of All Stars and New Stars.

All Stars on the line up are American couple Speidi, ex Strictly pro James Jordan, model Jasmine Waltz, Austin Armacost, Loose Women regular Coleen Nolan, model Nicola McLean and Calum Best.


Meanwhile, new stars are musician Ray J, model Bianca Gascoigne, actor James Cosmo, X Factor USA finalist Stacy Francis, 90s DJ Brandon Block, footballer Jamie O'Hara and Angie Best.

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 continues nightly on Channel 5.
