Ronnie Pickering is NOT joining Celebrity Big Brother

Ronnie Pickering has ruled out joining the Celebrity Big Brother 2016 line up.

According to reports earlier this year, internet sensation Ronnie was being considered for a spot in the house in the summer.

Ronnie made headlines last year after a road rage confrontation between himself and a motorbike rider caught on dashcam went viral.

Millions saw Citroen car driving Ronnie clash with the rider, now infamously declaring: “Do you know who I am?”

The video, which ended up being watched by millions, prompted remixes, memes and a whole lot more as it spread across the web.

Apparently it also caught the eye of bosses at Celebrity Big Brother.

"Bosses think sparks would fly if Ronnie enters the house," a source claimed previously.

But writing on his Facebook page this morning, Ronnie revealed he would not be entering the house this summer.

"Well I have made my mind up and I will not be going in Celebrity Big Brother," he posted (via Hull Daily Mail). "The only way I would go in the house is for a million pound for charity and that aint gunna happen so that's the end of that.

"So can you all be so kind and please stop asking. Thanks."

While the level of 'celebrity' on Big Brother has never been that high, Ronnie becoming a housemate would be a brand new low for the show.

Let's hope for some slightly bigger names on the confirmed line up when the new series of Celebrity Big Brother will air later this year on Channel 5.
