Lee Ryan says he will NEVER return to the Celebrity Big Brother house


Don't expect to see Lee Ryan back in the Celebrity Big Brother house next month.

Or, in fact, EVER again.

The former Blue singer was tipped to make a comeback to the show 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."

However now talking to new! magazine, Lee himself said there was no chance of him returning.

"I promise you on my life I wouldn't [go back] I couldn't think of anything worse," he said. "I probably wouldn't do anything like that ever again."

Lee is the latest name to deny any involvement in the upcoming All Stars special Celebrity Big Brother.

Channel 5 previously announced a brand new twist to the next Celebrity Big Brother with a mix of former Celebrity Big Brother housemates as well as new faces on the line up.

Latest CBB winner Bear was quickly rumoured but tweeted fans this week: "I can officially say I'm not doing CBB in Jan . I wasn't cool enough 😂"

So who could we actually see on Celebrity Big Brother next month?


New stars rumoured include Shameless actor Jody Latham, The Apprentice's Jessica Cunningham, TOWIE's Danielle Armstrong, reality TV regular Bianca Gascoigne and snooker ace Ronnie O'Sullivan.

Meanwhile, past 'all star' housemates who are rumoured to be returning include Lauren Harries, Jedward, Calum Best, Angelique 'Frenchy' Morgan, ex Strictly pro James Jordan, Katie Price, Nicola McLean, American couple Speidi - Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag - and Jasmine Lennard.

The Celebrity Big Brother 2017 start date was previously confirmed for 9PM, Channel 5 on Tuesday, January 3.
