Lee Ryan could be set for the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 line up


Lee Ryan has become the latest former housemate backed for a Celebrity Big Brother return.

The former Blue singer is being tipped to make a comeback to the house in 2017 for the rumoured all stars special.

Lee originally appeared in Series 13 back in January 2014, where he infamously ended up in a bit of a love triangle with fellow housemates Casey Batchelor and Jasmine Waltz.

Lee's bandmate Antony Costa said Lee would be "mad not to" return.

"I think he'd be brilliant," he told heat magazine. "He was brilliant in it.

"A lot of people still come up to me to this day and go… 'Ah your mate Lee was proper good man'... I'm thinking yeah he's a single man, good luck to him."

Lee is the latest name to sign up for Celebrity Big Brother 2017's 'Gold Stars vs News Stars' themed show, which will apparently see a mix of new celebs and former housemates return.

Other names thought to have signed up include 'new star' Bianca Gascoigne and model Calum Best, who both appeared together on Celebrity Love Island waaay back in 2006.

Alongside the pair, other past housemates who could be back include Angelique 'Frenchy' Morgan, ex Strictly pro James Jordan, BB7's Nikki Grahame, BB1's Nasty Nick, American couple Speidi - Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag - and model Jasmine Lennard.

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 will air on Channel 5 in January.
