Celebrity Big Brother 2015 line up: Gail Porter to become a housemate

Gail Porter

Gail Porter has reportedly signed up to become a Celebrity Big Brother 2015 housemate.

The Scottish telly host and model has endured a "decade from hell" with a divorce in addition to battles with alopecia and bipolar disorder.

The Sun newspaper reports that the 44-year-old hopes that a spot in the Celebrity Big Brother house can get career back on track.

A supposed TV source told the newspaper: “Gail has had an absolutely hellish few years, both mentally and physically. It would be enough to finish anyone off.

“But she is starting to come through it and feels ready to go into the house. It could be her path back into the limelight and resurrect her career.”

Gail had previously been lined up to appear on I'm A Celebrity back in 2010 but pulled out of the show at the last minute.

Celebrity Big Brother kicks off in a few weeks' time and we're now starting to get a pretty good idea of this summer's housemate line up.

As well as Gail, other celebrities tipped to enter the CBB House include Atomic Kitten singer Natasha Hamilton, TOWIE's Gemma Collins, 'Selfie Queen' Karen Danczuk and comic Bobby Davro.

Other names in the mix are Dean Gaffney, Dapper Laughs (aka Daniel O'Reilly) and former X Factor finalists, now engaged couple, Chloe Jasmine and Stevi Ritchie.

Also in the mix is model Janice Dickinson, David Gest and former Love Island contestant Paul Danan.

Celebrity Big Brother 2015 begins in August on Channel 5.
