The Celebrity Big Brother 2016 line up this summer could be about to get some new blood.

We're a week into the series now and the current cast of 15 all star housemates have settled in, so could it be time for some new faces?

Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On The Side host Rylan Clark-Neal has suggested so.

"There's 15 housemates in there at the moment, but anything can happen in Celebrity Big Brother – we've very much learnt that," he teased.

Rylan hinted: "It is 15, and that's how it's staying at the moment..."But like I said, if we want to throw one more in..."

While new housemates are quite rare for CBB, we have had some in the past such as Katie Price who joined the house a week after everyone else in 2015.

And we know that at least one more celeb was planned for the launch night line up after Beth Chapman, US reality star and wife of Dog The Bounty Hunter Duane Chapman, was ruled out at the last minute.

According to The Sun newspaper, Beth was denied a visa to take part in the show, supposedly over a shoplifting conviction for LEMONS from the 1980s.

If there is a newbie, some of the rumoured housemates for this year's series who haven't appeared yet include US rapper Lil' Kim, Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding, Gogglebox's Chris Steed and Stephen Webb and Corrie's Helen Flanagan.

However Helen Lederer has insisted she wouldn't be taking part despite being named on a 'leaked' line up.

"I think they thought they saw me going into the hotel which the producers put the contestants in," she suggested last week. "But it wasn't me, it was Sam Fox. We do look similar from behind, you know."

For now, Celebrity Big Brother 2016 continues nightly on Channel 5.
