Rapper Lil' Kim has reportedly signed up for the new series of Celebrity Big Brother 2016.

The US star is said to be getting one of the show's highest ever fees to appear on this summer's cast.

According to the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper, Lil' Kim - real name Kimberly Jones - will scoop around £500,000, a similar amount as given to David Gest and Katie Price.

There's been months of talks but the big money offer has supposedly secured the Lady Marmalade hitmaker for the house later this month.

A source said: "Producers are thrilled they finally got her.

"It's taken a lot of cash but they're confident it will be worth it."

Alongside this latest one, other reports have linked the likes of radio host Lizzie Cundy, 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 new CBB 2016 line up.

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

Celebrity Big Brother is confirmed to be launching just days after Big Brother concludes later this month.

While the exact start date has yet to be announced, we know it'll be sometime between July 25 and July 29.

In the very small gap between BB and CBB, the house will be given a glamorous make-over for the celebrity Housemates, but they shouldn’t make themselves too much at home, because despite the shiny new look of the house they must remember, all that glitters is not gold!
