Sam Faiers and Lee Ryan have become the latest stars added to this year's Celebrity Big Brother 2014 line up.

TOWIE star Sam is said to have agreed a six-figure deal with Channel 5 bosses, following on from her former fiance - Joey Essex - appearing in I'm A Celebrity.

But according to The Sun newspaper, Sam won't be leaving the ITV2 series like Joey.

A source told the newspaper: “Sam has seen how well Joey, top, has done on I’m A Celebrity and wants a slice of the action herself.

“She’s asked Towie bosses if it would be OK to do it and come back for filming afterwards — and they’re fine with that.

“They let Mario Falcone go on the summer Big Brother, so they could hardly have said no.”

Blue singer Lee Ryan is also looking to enter the house, having been rumoured last year.

The boyband singer had turned down a £175,000 offer, demanding more cash, but has now agreed a new deal that's said to be worth less after going back to producers himself.

“Lee is TV gold when he gets going," an insider said. “He’s not thick but he has a very unusual take on things — a bit like Joey Essex.

“Also, it will be good publicity for him and Blue, as they’ve got new material they want to plug.”

Other names being touted for the show include Dappy of pop group N-Dubz.

When it comes to the rest of next year's rumoured Celebrity Big Brother line up, some of the other stars already linked to the latest series include model Katie Price, Apprentice star and This Morning big mouth Katie Hopkins, former Strictly star Nancy Dell’Olio, N-Dubz singer Dappy and comic Jim Davidson.

Celebrity Big Brother 2014 starts on January 3 on Channel 5.
