Casey Johnson has been tipped to join Celebrity Big Brother 2018’s summer line up.
The X Factor star is the boyfriend of former Celebrity Big Brother housemate Marnie Simpson.
He’s currently appearing with Marnie on Ex On The Beach and could be set for Big Brother in the summer.
Casey rose to fame on The X Factor back in 2014 as part of mega boy band Stereo Kicks.
The eight piece group released just one single together in 2015 before splitting.
Now the Daily Star reports he’s “in talks” to take part in Celebrity Big Brother in the summer.
The new and potential last ever series of Celebrity Big Brother will air later in the year, typically launching in either August or September.
Early names rumoured for the line up include reality regular Charlotte Dawson , daughter of late comic Les Dawson, who last year appeared on Celebs Go Dating.
Goggleboxer Sandra Martin has also been linked to the show – again. She had been rumoured for the cast of January’s series, and suggested she was axed by show bosses after revealing she was going in.
More rumoured names include TOWIE’s Pete Wicks, S Club 7’s Paul Cattermole, TOWIE’s Bobby Norris and X Factor blabbermouth Sinitta.
Even the Chuckle Brothers have been tipped to enter the house.
As yet, Channel 5 hasn’t revealed if it will be renewing the series beyond the end of the year.
Host Emma Willis recently revealed she was being kept in the dark just like the rest of us.
She said: “I’m hoping it doesn’t go anywhere, but no one’s told me anything yet. I would love it to make 2020. A nice round number and 20 years would be amazing.”
Spin-off host Rylan said: “There’s no secret that Channel 5 only have it up until 2018, but as far as I’m aware there’s talks happening now for the future.”
Ahead of the latest celebrity series, a new series of Big Brother will also air on Channel 5.
