The summer series of Celebrity Big Brother 2016 will launch one week today but who could be entering the house?

The new summer run of CBB will be back on TV from Thursday, 28th July at 9PM with a live show hosted by Emma Willis.

The two hour launch will be followed by Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side at 11PM, hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal.

The Celebrity Big Brother will come just ONE DAY after the Big Brother 2016 final which itself has been confirmed today for Tuesday, July 26th.

And in good news for BB uber fans, live feed will return nightly over on 5*.

But just who will be in the house?

While the new series of Celebrity Big Brother kicks off later this month, Channel 5 say the line up of celebrities is being kept "top secret".

However that hasn't stopped the rumour mill spewing out a LOT of names.

One of those linked to the show is rapper Lil' Kim who is supposedly scooping the series' biggest fee ever and she's not the only American.

US reality star Beth Chapman, wife of 'Dog The Bounty Hunter' and singer Aubrey O'Day are also both rumoured, as well as seventies heart-throb David Cassidy, famous for appearing in American sitcom The Partridge Family.

Other reported celebrity housemates right now include radio presenter Lizzie Cundy, Absolutely Fabulous star Helen Lederer and Geordie Shore's Marnie Simpson.

More 'celebs' tipped to be a part of the cast are Union J singer Jaymi Hensley, Anthea Turner's ex husband Grant Bovey, Gogglebox's Chris Steed and Stephen Webb, model Samantha Fox former X Factor act Katie Waissel.

Even more names from the VERY female dominated rumour mill include TOWIE's Jessica Wright, Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding, actress Helen Flanagan and American Mob Wives star Renee Graziano.

Last week saw Channel 5 announce the very first details about this summer's Celebrity series, with a teaser to match the new golden eye logo.

They say that the BB House will be given a glamorous make-over for the brand new 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!
