Celebrity Big Brother 2017: Jasmine Lennard 'snubbed' in favour of Jasmine Waltz


Celebrity Big Brother bosses have supposedly swapped Jasmine Lennard for Jasmine Waltz on the All Stars line up.

Both former housemates had been linked to the show but only one of them is going to get the gig, it's been claimed.

Lennard first appeared in the CBB house in 2012 - as well as taking part in 2015's Timebomb civilian series - while Waltz popped up on Celebrity Big Brother in 2014.

According to The Sun newspaper, Lennard is "fuming" at being "dropped" from the cast, and even more angry at her apparent rival replacing her.

“Jasmine is fuming after being dropped for the upcoming series of CBB – and to make matters even worse she’s been replaced by Jasmine Waltz," a source said.

The insider continued: “Jasmine Waltz proved to be great value when she kissed Apprentice star Luisa Zissman and had a brief romance with Lee Ryan during her appearance on the program.

“It is unsurprising that bosses want her back on next year but the news certainly doesn’t sit well with Jasmine [Lennard].”

CBB fans speculated that Jasmine Waltz could be on the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 line up this year after a teaser clip was posted online.

The video clip posted to Twitter this afternoon seemingly shows a long haired lady talking to camera.

In a disguised voice, they say: "This time you get to watch me make the same mistakes over again I'm sure," potentially a reference to Jasmine's fling with Lee Ryan when she was first in the house.

Whether the speculation is right or not remains to be seen, with Channel 5 not officially announcing any names before launch night.

However they have confirmed that the new series of the show will indeed see a mix of former Celebrity Big Brother housemates as well as new faces.

Host Emma Willis will introduce us to the official new Celebrity Big Brother line up, made up of the returning housemates and new faces next week.

Celebrity Big Brother launches on Tuesday, January 3 on Channel 5 at 9PM.
