Stacy Francis is the latest name linked to the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 cast


American singer and reality star Stacy Francis is the latest name rumoured for the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 line up.

The performer's career includes credits on Broadway, TV and an appearance on the American version of The X Factor, where Stacy made the live shows in 2011.


However it was in 2012 that Stacy made headline news over a reported bust up with Whitney Houston just hours before her death.

And in an extra twist, the alleged row supposedly involved ANOTHER rumoured Celebrity Big Brother housemate, musician Ray J.

A source spilled to the Daily Star newspaper: “Producers know there is a good chance Stacy and Ray J will reveal new details about Whitney’s final hours, and Celebrity Big Brother will become a global talking point.”

If they do indeed end up in the house, Ray J and Stacy will make up two of the 'new stars' on the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 line up.


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

Celebrity Big Brother's so-called 'All Stars v New Stars' will launch on Tuesday, January 3 on Channel 5.

Other new stars linked to the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 cast include footballer Jamie O'Hara, X Factor singer Sam Callahan, The Apprentice's Jessica Cunningham, reality TV regular Bianca Gascoigne and snooker ace Ronnie O'Sullivan.

Meanwhile, past 'all star' housemates who could be returning include Austin Armacost, Coleen Nolan, Jedward, Calum Best, Nicola McLean, American couple Speidi - Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag - and Jasmine Waltz.

Meanwhile, a live twist for the first week has already been confirmed, which will introduce more housemates to the mix shortly after the launch night.

Celebrity Big Brother starts Tuesday night at 9PM on Channel 5.
