TOWIE's Danielle Armstrong could be one of the 'new stars' on Celebrity Big Brother 2017.

So much for actual celebrities...

The reality telly star quit The Only Way Is Essex earlier this year and is now set to join the CBB line up.

If so, she'd be the seventh star from the series to appear after Gemma Collins, Mario Falcone, Lauren Goodger, Sam Faiers, Kirk Norcross and Amy Childs.

"Danielle has a big personality and would be a great asset to the house," a source said this evening. “She’s looking to branch out now her Towie days are over and sees CBB as a great way to do this."

The insider added: “Her fellow Towie stars have managed to get their own shows out their stint in the house – she wants to do likewise.”

Channel 5 yesterday CONFIRMED that the new series will - as widely rumoured - see a mix of former Celebrity Big Brother housemates as well as new new faces.

"This time we’ve invited back some of your favourite CBB housemates: the All Stars who will be joined by a bunch of brand new celebrity housemates: the New Stars," the channel explained. "Together they’ll be living in the Big Brother house which has been given a colourful pop art makeover."

Past housemates who are rumoured to be returning include Angelique 'Frenchy' Morgan, ex Strictly pro James Jordan, Katie Price, Nicola McLean, American couple Speidi - Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag - and model Jasmine Lennard, as well as most winner Stephen Bear.
