The first Celebrity Big Brother 2016 housemate may have just been accidentally confirmed.

American reality star Beth Chapman, wife of 'Dog The Bounty Hunter' Duane Chapman, looks to be set to join the CBB house next week.

Her Official account seemed to leak the news this afternoon, tweeting: "BETH WILL BE ENTERING THE BIG BROTHER HOUSE WHEN THE NEW SERIES LAUNCHES NEXT WEEK IN THE UK !!!"

Earlier today, a source spilled to The Sun newspaper: "Getting Beth for the new series is a real coup for Channel 5.

"As reality stars go, she’s one of the world’s most recognisable, and she’s guaranteed to make great telly."

Beth has appeared alongside husband Duane 'Dog' Chapman in a number of shows in the States, which also air here in the UK.

Duane himself was previously linked to CBB but visa issues were reported to have ruled him out of appearing.

More names linked to the series this week are seventies heart-throb David Cassidy, famous for appearing in American sitcom The Partridge Family, singer and model Aubrey O'Dayl and Geordie Shore’s Marnie Simpson.

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.

Further 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.
