Who's in Celebrity Big Brother 2015? Darts player Richie Burnett 'joins line up'

Darts player Richie Burnett

Darts player Richie Burnett has been tipped to take part in Celebrity Big Brother 2015 this month.

The shamed sportsman was banned from this year's latest championship over claims of drug use, allegations he's yet to comment on.

The Sun newspaper reports that Richie is hoping to "revive his career" with a comeback on the Channel 5 series which launches next week.

“Richie’s career has been hanging in the balance ever since he was banned last month," a source told the newspaper. “It’s been a rough time for him. But he is hoping that Big Brother can change things."

The insider added to the tabloid today (January 1): "It’s a chance for him to give his side of the story.

“He could be facing anything from a year to life away from the sport.”

Some of the other sort-of celebs who have been linked to the latest line up include TV host Keith Chegwin, celeb blogger Perez Hilton, East 17 singer Brian Harvey, soap star Patsy Kensit, model Calum Best and media loudmouth Katie Hopkins.

There's also been more recent rumours that X Factor's Marcus Collins, Baywatch actor Jeremy Jackson and Dynasty's Linda Evans are set to enter the house.

Celebrity Big Brother 2015 starts on Wednesday, January 7 on Channel 5.
