Celebrity Big Brother line up tipped to include Mob Wives' Renee Graziano

Mob Wives star Renee Graziano has been tipped to appear on Celebrity Big Brother this summer.

It's after another of the show's stars, Angela "Big Ang" Raiola, was rumoured to join the line up last year.

Big Ang had to pull out of the series after being diagnosed with cancer, which tragically led to her passing earlier this year.

Now the co-star of the late American TV personality is set to end up on CBB instead, according to The Sun newspaper.

Renee Graziano and Big Ang both appeared on VH1's Mob Wives, a reality series which follows women whose family members have been arrested and imprisoned for crimes allegedly connected to the Mafia.

However the channel announced back in December that it was cancelling the show after this five years with the latest series this Spring being the last.

"Renee is set to be an explosive housemate - she takes no prisoners, and she won't stand any nonsense," a source said today.

They explained: "Producers think she'll bring controversy from the get go - and anyone who crosses her will regret it.

"She's one of the most recognisable reality stars in the States, Mob Wives was a huge hit there."

The new series of Celebrity Big Brother 2016 is expected to begin around August time on Channel 5.
