Austin Armacost is the latest Celebrity Big Brother housemate tipped to return to the house next month.

The American previously appeared in Celebrity Big Brother 2015's USA v UK special and finished as runner up to The Apprentice's James Hill.

The pair struck up quite the bromance inside the house but sources say he WON'T be returning alongside Austin.

An insider told The Sun newspaper today: “Austin can’t wait to enter the Big Brother house again.

“He really enjoyed his time in there and is looking forward to the new challenge.

“He’s just gutted that James Hill won’t be joining him.”

There are now less than two weeks until the new series of Celebrity Big Brother begins with a new All Stars v New Stars twist.

"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," Channel 5 explained earlier in this month. "Together they’ll be living in the Big Brother house which has been given a colourful pop art makeover."

They added: "As always the identities of the housemates are top secret, but we can confirm that this series promises to be an explosion of fun and loud personalities which are sure to cause fireworks… in fact, everything you love about Celebrity Big Brother!"

On Tuesday, Channel 5 teased a first Celebrity housemate and yesterday evening they revealed another cryptic clue on Twitter.

"Time for your second #CBB housemate hint!" the official Big Brother Twitter account asked.

They added alongside the short video clip: "We've hidden their face and disguised their voice, but who might this musical maverick be?"

"I was fortunate enough to be part of the biggest musical revolution that's ever happened really," says the mystery housemate.

They add in the video: "I like to think of myself as a bit of an all-rounder. Jack of all trades, master of none."

Any guesses?

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 All Stars will launch at 9PM, Channel 5 on Tuesday, January 3.
