Rylan Clark has "friends" in the Celebrity Big Brother 2014 line up!

Rylan Clark (Celebrity Big Brother 2013)

Rylan Clark has teased the Celebrity Big Brother 2014 line up, saying he has "friends" entering the house.

The latest Celebrity Big Brother UK series launches this Friday night, with rumours of a line up that includes TOWIE's Sam Faiers and comedian Jim Davidson.

Glamour model Katie Price is also set to enter the house, but Rylan was coy when quizzed about those rumours in particular.

Confirming he had seen the line up, Rylan teased: "All I can say is that I've got quite a few friends entering the house this year.

"I haven't really given them any advice because you can only be yourself in there."

He continued: "Katie is a great girl, so if she ever did anything like Big Brother, then the public could love her."

Rylan, who won the series last January, added: "With all those cameras on you 24/7 there's no way you can be anything other than the real you."

Rylan's co-host Emma Willis however wasn't sure that Katie would be a great fit for CBB.

She explained: "I've met her [Katie] a couple of times and she's always been really nice. It's always an odd one, having somebody who's done so much reality TV because they know how to do.

"I want to see people genuinely being themselves. I'm not saying she wouldn't be - I don't know who the real Katie Price is - so maybe that's what we'd get to see if she did go in."

Other names set for the house are rumoured to include TOWIE's Sam Faiers, comedian Jim Davidson girlfriend of ex-England manager Sven-Göran Eriksson Nancy Dell’Olio and soap star Alan Fletcher.

They're all set to be joined by former heavyweight boxer Evander Holyfield, Blue's Lee Ryan, Made In Chelsea's Ollie Locke and American Z-lister model Jasmine Waltz.

CBB launches this Friday night on Channel 5 from 9PM with host Emma.
