Ashleigh Defty Ex On The Beach

Ex On The Beach's Ashleigh Defty has been tipped to join Celebrity Big Brother 2016.

The star of the MTV series previously dated Scotty T, who of course won the last series of CBB back in January of this year.

Now Ashleigh is seeing Leicester City 'bad boy' Danny Simpson, who was recently ordered to carry out community service for assaulting an ex-girlfriend.

Ashleigh defended her boyfriend this week, telling OK! Magazine: “People might say to me ‘Oh, you’re just another girl’ but people don’t know we’ve always been friends.

"I am well aware of his past. Everyone has a past.”

She revealed: “We’ve seen each other on and off for years but this time it feels different because we’re both happy and he’s single.

“We have an absolute scream, a proper laugh.

“He’s a real lad and we just get on. He’s cute.”

And as for those Celebrity Big Brother rumours, Ashleigh said she was more than up for a stint in the house this summer.

“I’d love to do Celebrity Big Brother," she said.

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

Other celebrities tipped to appear on the new line up include Mob Wives' Renee Graziano, Made In Chelsea's Spencer Matthews, Union J's Jaymi Hensley and former I'm A Celebrity camper Lady C.
