Eamonn Holmes has suggested he's heading into the Celebrity Big Brother 2016 house.

The This Morning and Sky News presenter has been repeated linked to the show, so has he FINALLY signed up?

Speaking on ITV earlier today, Eamonn teased: "Celebrity Big Brother starts this week - so I'll not be seeing you next week. I can't say more than that!"

He previously revealed wife and co-host Ruth Langsford had BANNED him from appearing in the CBB house because of his underwear.

"I have keep getting asked to do Celebrity Big Brother," Eamonn confirmed, " And I say to Ruth, 'I don't think we can ignore this now.'

"She is like, 'That is not happening. I am not having people see what you're really like. You and your underwear.'

"It boils down to my underwear why I am not allowed to go on."

So has Ruth finally given Eamonn the all clear to head on into the house? We'll have to wait and see.

The new series of Celebrity Big Brother kicks off Thursday night on Channel 5 when the celebrity line will be revealed.

Among the most prevalent rumours are Geordie Shore's Marnie Simpson, TOWIE's Lewis Bloor, Ex On The Beach's Stephen Bear, X Factor's Katie Waissel and Chloe Khan, panto favourite Christopher Biggins, Mob Wives' Renee Graziano and Dog The Bounty Hunter's wife Beth Chapman.

But no celebs are confirmed and won't be until launch night.

For now, Big Brother concludes tonight at 9PM on Channel 5 with its own live final.
