Gillian Taylforth

Gillian Taylforth is hoping that Celebrity Big Brother 2013 will help revive her telly career.

Because apparently it's done wonders for the careers of those who have entered in the past.

The 57-year-old stared in Eastenders, Footballers Wives and more recently X, and is apparently hoping that a stint in the CBB house will boost her profile.

A source told the Daily Star Sunday today: "She was at the top of her game a decade ago and misses being on a hit show.

“She wants this to bring in some high-profile acting offers.”

The new series of Celebrity Big Brother kicks off on Thursday night on Channel 5, with an impressive line up of twelve stars set to enter the house.

Along with Tricia, soap stars Gillian Taylforth, Ryan Moloney and Sam Robertson are all also expected to take part.

They're set to be joined by husband and wife duo Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, jockey Frankie Dettorri, comic Jim Davidson and X Factor's Rylan Clark, while model Lacey Banghard and model Paula Hamilton make up the numbers.

Celebrity Big Brother starts on Thursday night at 9PM on Channel 5.
