Celebrity Big Brother 2014 line up: Katie Hopkins says she's NOT going in!

Professional troll Katie Hopkins has ruled herself out of the Celebrity Big Brother 2014 line up.

The This Morning loudmouth had been tipped to enter the house this Friday night, with bosses reportedly hopeful for some controversy from the outspoken former reality star.

But in a blog for Yahoo!, the ex Apprentice candidate rubbished the rumours, saying she couldn't stand the prospect of three weeks locked up with 'Z-listers'.

"If I had been going in the year that the ‘Giant Crotch of a Woman’ [Sally] Bercow went in, I would take a blunt knife from the CBB kitchen and shove it up my nose to end it all," Katie claimed. "Being known for saying stuff other people won’t say is one thing. I am proud to own that title. Being known for marrying a short man with power issues is quite another."

However, she did admit some positives to taking part in the series: "Write down a list of all the things you hate about your life at the moment: your husband, changing duvet covers, the self-service tills at Sainsbury’s or your children squabbling over the iPad? Consider CBB an all-inclusive holiday from all of that."

For now, Katie will be sitting at home watching like the rest of us, and giving everyone her rather honest views.

Discussing the rest of the rumoured line up, she said: "This year we look forward to the delights of Sam Faiers, Ollie Lock and Rapper Dappy."

Describing Sam's looks as a "cat with particularly painful conjunctivitis", Katie continued: "Sam Faiers’ pics always carry the caption; ‘TOWIE beauty - Sam Faiers’. It’s a bit like introducing Sarah Millican as ‘The very funny Sarah Millican’ – when she is clearly about as funny as thrush."

With both Katie now out, other names still on the current rumoured Celebrity Big Brother line up include model Katie Price, Made In Chelaea's Ollie Locke and model India Reynolds.

More names set to the new series are said to be former Strictly star Nancy Dell’Olio, comedian Jim Davidson, TOIWE’s Sam Faiers and more recently, boxer Evander Holyfield and Neighbours actor Alan Fletcher.

Celebrity Big Brother 2014 starts this Friday night, January 3 on Channel 5 from 9PM.
