Marnie Simpson

Geordie Shore’s Marnie Simpson has become the latest rumoured name for Celebrity Big Brother 2016's summer line up.

She's set to be the FOURTH star of the MTV reality series to enter, following Charlotte Corsby, Scotty T and Ricci Guarnaccio, the former two of which WON the show.

So can Marnie make it a hat-trick?

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Scotty T and Charlotte were both fan favourites on the show and Marnie really could emulate her success.

“Geordie Shore members are used to being filmed drinking, rowing and even having sex so they are perfect to create explosive TV.”

More names linked to the series this week are seventies heart-throb David Cassidy, famous for appearing in American sitcom The Partridge Family, and Playboy model Aubrey O'Day.

Other strong rumours have indicated that US rapper Lil' Kim will also join the Celebrity Big Brother 2016 cast, supposedly scooping the series' biggest fee ever.

Other rumoured celebrity housemates right now include Anthea Turner's ex husband Grant Bovey, radio presenter Lizzie Cundy, Absolutely Fabulous star Helen Lederer and Ex On The Beach's Ashleigh Defty.

More 'celebs' tipped to be a part of the cast are Gogglebox's Chris Steed and Stephen Webb, model Samantha Fox and former X Factor act Katie Waissel.

The VERY female dominated rumour mill also includes TOWIE's Jessica Wright, Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding, Union J singer Jaymi Hensley, actress Helen Flanagan and American Mob Wives star Renee Graziano.

Celebrity Big Brother 2016 start on July 28 on Channel 5.
