Frankie Dettori's agent has rubbished claims that the jockey will be appearing on Celebrity Big Brother in the new year.

The Daily Star had claimed that the shamed jockey was a "dead cert" to be in next year's line up, with bookies making him the 3/1 favourite.

Good thing we didn't put a bet on then!

Frankie's agent, Pete Burrell, told the Daily Mail: "Frankie has no plans to appear on this show.

" We have not discussed it and I do not imagine we will be discussing it."

The 41-year-ol was given a six month ban from the sport back in September after being testing positive for a banned substance during a race in France.

Burrell added: "Frankie is out of the country for the next two months and is already looking forward to riding again in May."

Other stars rumoured to be taking part in next year's show include Corrie stars Bruce Jones and Wendi Peters, 'Bat Out Of Hell' singer Meat Loaf and former MP John Prescott.

Recently axed X Factor contestant Rylan Clark has also been linked to the upcoming series, although he is committed to the talent contest's live tour, which begins at the end of January.
