Katie Price has denied she’s set to return to Celebrity Big Brother for a second time.

Katie previously won the show in 2015 but has been rumoured be set for a comeback.

The model and reality star is currently making headlines for her current financial situation, with reports she is facing bankruptcy.

Bookies Coral has cut its odds from 10-1 to 4-1 that Katie will pop up on the CBB cast once again.

Spokesperson Harry Aitkenhead said: “It would certainly be no surprise to see Katie sign up for another series of Big Brother this summer, with the show having previous in bringing back former contestants.

“She was hugely popular on the show back in 2015 and we’ve slashed our odds on her attempting to repeat her victory three years on this summer.”

But a representative for Katie denied she was going to go back in the house.

Earlier this year Katie told her followers on Twitter she would ‘do it [CBB] again’ after her previous victory.

If Katie did enter the show it would prove controversial with her estranged husband Kieran Hayler also on the rumoured line up.

Meanwhile, news of a possible comeback for Katie follows reports that two celebs have quit this year’s Celebrity Big Brother cast.

TV presenter John Leslie and transgender rights activist and journalist Paris Lees are said to have walked away from the show.

The Sun reports that show bosses are now left struggling to find replacement names.

“Paris’s deal broke down during last minute negotiations, so she won’t be going into the house anymore,” a source said today. “And John was offered a big, six-figure deal but turned it down and now he’s out of the running too.”

The insider explained: “It’s left frantic bosses scrambling to fill the remaining slots. They want to land big names but they’re really up against it with time.”

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 launches live on Channel 5 next Thursday, August 17 with host Emma Willis.

Other names linked to the Celebrity Big Brother cast this year include headline grabbing footballer Jermaine Pennant, Hollywood actress Kirstie Alley, So Macho hitmaker Sinitta, ‘Human Ken Doll’ Rodrigo Alves and American porn actress Stormy Daniels, who is currently at the centre of controversy surrounding president Donald Trump.

Yet more celebs tipped for the Celebrity Big Brother 2018 line up this summer include, TOWIE’s Dan Osborne, Love Island’s Gabby Allen, Corrie’s Ryan Thomas.

Further potential celebrity housemates are TOWIE’s Bobby Norris, S Club 7’s Paul Cattermole, American reality TV star Mehgan James and star of Netflix series Queer Eye Jonathan Van Ness.
