Celebrity Big Brother 2014 housemates: Jim Davidson all set to enter house

Jim Davidson

Jim Davidson has been given the go ahead to take part in Celebrity Big Brother 2014.

The comic and TV host had originally been lined up to enter the house back in January of this year, but had to pull out at the last minute.

The 60-year-old was arrested by officers from Operation Yewtree just days before the show started, following claims of historic sex crimes.

Those allegations were later dropped, but the former Generation Game presenter was arrested again in March over a separate incident dating from the 1980s.

The Daily Star newspaper reports that yesterday Police confirmed that no further action would be taken in connection with the latest claims, leaving Jim to become a CBB housemate.

And according to the newspaper, he hopes to use his time in the house to help rebuild his reputation.

A source told the tabloid: “He was very keen on becoming a housemate the first time round so he’s pleased that he can now look forward to that opportunity.”

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 TOIWE's Sam Faiers.

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