The first big Brother 2017 housemates may have already been revealed.

As was previously confirmed, this year Big Brother is looking for pairs of housemates for the new show in the summer.


They can be relatives, couples or just friends - like Dean Salmon and Adam Parkinson.

According to The Sun newspaper, the pals could be set to enter the Big Brother house on Channel 5 later this year.

Dean Salmon is sister to Love Island star Katie Salmon and has already appeared on a few TV shows, the tabloid reports, including E4’s Carjackers.

A source claimed that Dean hopes BBUK could be a way for him to replicate his sister's reality telly success.

"There’s always been a sibling rivalry between Katie and Dean," the insider explained. “Since Katie’s Love Island stint, her fame skyrocketed. Meanwhile, he’s been acting as her PA, working in the background, making connections and getting his foot in the door."

They added: “He’s hoping by featuring on Big Brother with his best pal he will be able to break into the biz just like Katie has – and even potentially trump her achievements.”


Another potential BBUK housemate is so-called 'Human Doll' Rodrigo Alves, who has appeared on TV shows including This Morning.

"Rodrigo is dying to be big on national television and hopes that the deal comes through," a source claimed.

In recent years Big Brother has (sadly) become known for casting Z-list reality stars in favour of everyday folk.

Last year's line up saw a number of TV wannabes including Alex Cannon, who had appeared on MTV's Judge Geordie, and Lateysha Grace, who was on MTV's The Valleys.

The series also included former BBC Newsreader Andy West, X Factor's Ryan Ruckledge and actress Laura Carter.


Big Brother will air on Channel 5 this summer.

No start date has been set yet but series over the past have started anywhere between May and July.
