Here's a look at some of the rumoured 'celebrity' housemates for Big Brother 2016.

The new run of BBUK kicks off on Tuesday night and although it's a so-called civilian series, we can expect to see some familiar faces.

Rumour has it that show bosses will be peppering the line up with a few 'celebrities' in a bid to boost ratings .

So who can we expect to see? Well top of the list of X Factor's Katie Waissel who we'd usually expect to be included in the full Celebrity version of the show.

“Katie will make for compelling viewing because she is such a character," a source told the Daily Star on Sunday today. “She is bound to divide opinion just like she did on The X Factor.”

Further rumoured housemates are stars of MTV series, Judge Geordie's Alex Cannon and The Valleys' Lateysha Grace, as well as Marco Pierre White Jr, son of the famous celebrity chef.

Another name linked to Big Brother 2016 is dominatrix Natalie Rowe, who previously hit the headlines over pictures of her partying with Chancellor George Osborne back in the 90s.

The sort-of-celebrity line up is also rumoured to involve a model who apparently slept with Justin Bieber.

Laura Carter, who has also appeared on an E4 dating show, revealed in December how she supposedly had a threesome with singer Justin following an X-rated game of Truth or Dare at a London hotel.

More 'celebrities' in the mix for BBUK are said to include Connor Hunter, who appeared on MTV's Ex On The Beach, X Factor reject Ryan Ruckledge, who was kicked out by the judge at last year's bootcamp and model Celia Kay, who reportedly had a fling with a footballer.

Also tipped to take part are the so-called 'Selfie Sisters' made up of Lucie, Sophie and Stacie. The girls are another tabloid favourite after revealing last year how they made money from men online through so-called "rinsing".

A source said: "It's no secret that they want to be the UK's answer to the Kardashians, which is why they all changed their names to end in 'ie' to make them more of a brand."

Finally yet another model could become one of this year's Big Brother housemates after making headlines for her controversial confession.

29-year-old Catherine Byrne revealed she had signed up to attend University just to spend loan money on two boob jobs, botox and lip fillers.

Catherine explained that she wanted to help her modelling career and become more like her idol, former Celebrity Big Brother winner Katie Price.

She told The Sun newspaper at the time: "My boob job has done more for my career than any degree could."

Big Brother 2016 begins on Channel 5, Tuesday at 9PM.
