Celebrity Big Brother 2013 housemate (probably) Tricia Penrose has been getting tips from Denise Welch.

Loose Women star won the last series in January, although we're still not exactly sure how she managed it.

The 54-year-old has apparently been sharing her tips and experiences with former Heartbeat actress Tricia.

She said: “We’ve been mates for years.”

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.
