90s DJ Brandon Block to join Celebrity Big Brother 2017 line up?


As the launch of Celebrity Big Brother 2017 nears, a number of new names are being linked to the cast.

The new series launches tomorrow (Tuesday) night and 90s DJ Brandon Block is the latest 'celebrity' to be tipped for the line up.


"Brandon was a huge name in the Nineties," a source told The Sun newspaper. “He was on radio constantly and his hard-partying ways were all over the papers.

“Not only was he a successful DJ but also a big producer throughout the late Eighties, too. When CBB offered him a spot this year he was well up for it.

Yesterday, American singer and reality star Stacy Francis was also rumoured for the latest CBB series.

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, Stacy and Brandon will make up two of the 'new stars' on the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 line up.

Channel 5 previously announced a new twist to the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 with a mix of former housemates as well as new faces on the cast.


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.

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