Celebrity Big Brother 2017 is now just days away and the latest housemate teaser is in.

The video clip posted to Twitter this evening ahead of the New Years Eve celebrations reveals a mystery "red-blooded male".

"Single and ready to mingle? It's our newest mystery #CBB housemate! But who is it?" the official BBUK Twitter account posted online.

In a disguised voice, the celeb says: “I’ve been told I’m eye-candy, and do you know what? So be it.”

They continue: “The way I see it is this, I’m single, a red-blooded male, I enjoy women’s company...

“So if that’s what people want to call playboy, so be it – that’s what I am!”

Fans have suggested the mystery star could be either returning housemate Calum Best or rumoured newbie Sam Callahan, who was on The X Factor live shows in 2013.

We'll have to wait to find out with Channel 5 not officially announcing any names before launch night, but there's not long to go now.

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

New stars rumoured include footballer Jamie O'Hara, rapper Ray J, recent Apprentice candidate Jessica Cunningham, reality TV regular Bianca Gascoigne and snooker ace Ronnie O'Sullivan.

Meanwhile, past 'all star' housemates who are rumoured to be returning include James Jordan, Katie Price, Nicola McLean, American couple Speidi - Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag - and Austin Armacost.

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