TOWIE's Lucy Mecklenburgh has denied she's set for the Celebrity Big Brother UK line up.

Just days before the show starts, the reality star wrote in her weekly new! magazine column that she wasn't entering the house.

And Lucy insisted she didn't know for sure whether co-star Sam Faiers would be entering in tomorrow night's live launch show either.

"I've had a few tweets asking me if I'm going on Celebrity Big Brother with Sam Faiers," Lucy wrote. "I can confirm that this isn't true. I don't know if Sam is going to be on the show, but I am definitely not."

The 22-year-old went on to explain she would be against ever taking part in Celebrity Big Brother, saying she'd prefer other reality shows such as Dancing On Ice.

But she'll still be watching the series when it all kicks off on Friday evening.

"The idea of going on CBB and sharing a house with lots of people doesn't really appeal to me," Lucy said. "I think I'd get bored and I'd rather do something more challenging like Dancing on Ice or Strictly Come Dancing, where you actually learn a skill.

"But I'll certainly be watching CBB, especially if Sam ends up on it!"

Celebrity Big Brother 2014 will start on Friday night (January 3) on Channel 5.

Other celebs linked to the latest series include Apprentice star Luisa Zissman, Made In Chelsea's Ollie Locke, N-Dubz singer Dappy, former heavyweight boxer Evander Holyfield and Aussie soap star Alan Fletcher.
