Paralympian Lyndon Longhorne is being rumoured for the summer Celebrity Big Brother 2016 line up.

The inspiring 20-year-old lost both legs, his right arm and fingers on his left hand after suffering meningitis as a baby.

He's since worked raising money for the Meningitis Trust and is set to compete for Great Britain at the 2016 Paralympic games in Rio later this year in swimming events.

According to the Daily Star, Lyndon had originally been lined up for the current Big Brother series but will instead now star in the Celebrity version in August.

While the latest series of Celebrity Big Brother is still some way off there have been a few rumours building now.

Alongside this latest one, other reports have linked the likes of Made In Chelsea's Spencer Matthews, Ex On The Beach's Ashleigh Defty, Gogglebox's Chris Steed and Stephen Webb, X Factor's Chloe Mafia and model Samantha Fox to the line up.

More rumoured names include TOWIE's Jessica Wright, Union J singer Jaymi Hensley and American Mob Wives star Renee Graziano.
