Singing twin sisters The Cheeky Girls could be on the Big Brother 2017 cast this summer.

The pop duo - real names Gabriela and Monica Irimia - rose to fame after their iconic audition on ITV show Popstars: The Rivals back in 2002.


Although they didn't come close to winning the series, the pair went on to release a number of singles with four top ten hits.

Now they're supposedly in "advanced talks" to join the Big Brother line up in the summer.

“There is massive interest in the girls and they know how much the nation love them," a source told The Sun newspaper. “Show bosses think this could be the best year yet and the pairs theme is already shaping up nicely.

“Gabriela and Monica have never done Big Brother—they’ve been waiting for the right moment.”

The pair are the latest names linked to this summer's show which is looking for couples of housemates.

Other potential contestants include the 'Peru Two drug mules' Michaella McCollum and Melissa Reid.


The pair were released from prison in South America in 2016 after spending three years in jail over claims of drug smuggling.

Since then they have (somehow) become de facto Z-list celebrities and could end up in the BBUK house.

The Sun newspaper also reports that Playboy model Carla Howe and fellow model twin sister Melissa Howe may sign up for the show.

It turns out that Carla has links to many past Celebrity Big Brother housemates, including Jamie O’Hara, Calum Best and Ray J.

A further pair linked to the Big Brother 2017 line up are pals Dean Salmon and Adam Parkinson.


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

Big Brother will air on Channel 5 this summer.
