Big Brother 2015 housemates scouted to include 'characters'

Big Brother bosses have been accused of 'FIXING' the cast of this summer's show.

It's after those who actually bothered to audition were seemingly snubbed in favour of going after specific people who have already appeared in the media, even if barely.

Characters bosses have scouted included every one from porn stars to wannabe singers and YouTube vloggers.

Also approached have been transgender soldier Hannah Winterbourne, who previously appeared on ITV's Lorraine, a look-a-like of Frozen's Elsa and headline grabbing Dolly Parton fan Joe Skelly.

However it doesn't sound as if any of them have been interested.

"I was shocked. I never watch Big Brother and I’d never apply," Joe told the Daily Star newspaper after being approached. “I’m sure the people who really want to audition don’t know about this. It makes the auditions process seem a farce.”

Big Brother ditched its open auditions back in 2013, instead opting to ask those with an interest of becoming a housemate to apply online via video.

A spokesperson for Big Brother said: “The casting of Big Brother is a confidential process.”

The new series of Big Brother is expected to begin next month on Channel 5.
