Emma Willis is hoping Speidi make a triumphant return to Celebrity Big Brother 2017 tonight.

After months of rumours this evening will see the official line up for the new CBB series revealed as the show launches on Channel 5.

It's been confirmed the cast will include a mix of former housemates plus new celebs, but no names have been officially announced yet.

Speaking ahead of tonight's launch, Emma blabbed: “There’s lots of chat about Speidi going back in. They were so brilliant the first time as being that sort of panto villain where you didn’t really know if it was real or not real.

“They kind of kept us all guessing. Even after they left you didn’t know what they’d just done, or whether it was true or just for the show.

“It’s quite interesting to find out what people who have been in there before would do second time around."

In a chat with The Sun newspaper, Emma also spoke of seeing her partner in crime Rylan Clark-Neal in the house again.

"Probably Rylan would win it again if he went back in. He’s a massive part of the Big Brother family," she said, offering to cover his work on spin-off show Bit On The Side if he wanted to return to the house for a bit.

Emma went on to claim that leaked lists of rumoured housemates doing the rounds ahead of launch night were in fact WRONG.

However, despite Emma's comments, photographs from the studio seem to confirm that some of the speculation has been spot on.

Those snapped at the house already include Speidi, Nicola McLean and 90s radio DJ Brandon Block.

Of course, maybe it's just a coincidence...

Celebrity Big Brother launches tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
