Jedward are rumoured to be joining the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 cast.

The twin duo, who first appeared on The X Factor in 2009, originally joined the Celebrity Big Brother line up in 2011.

While Jedward did enjoy some success in the few years following, more recently their profile has become rather non-existent.

Could a spot on the Celebrity Big Brother All Stars line up turn things around?

A source told Daily Star newspaper previously: "Jedward caused chaos when they were in the house five years ago and viewers loved it.

"Producers were really keen to get them back, they know they are TV gold."

The twins have yet to speak out about the rumours but did tweet this week: "It's gonna be a JEPIC Year 2017"

There was no sign of the pair in last night's launch but host Emma Willis did confirm that more celebs would be joining the house on Friday night.

Could Jedward be one of them? Time will tell...

For now, a mix of 14 All Stars and New Stars are settling into the house.

All Stars on the line up so far are American couple Speidi, ex Strictly pro James Jordan, model Jasmine Waltz, Austin Armacost, Loose Women regular Coleen Nolan, model Nicola McLean and Calum Best.

Meanwhile, new stars are musician Ray J, model Bianca Gascoigne, actor James Cosmo, X Factor USA finalist Stacy Francis, 90s DJ Brandon Block, footballer Jamie O'Hara and Angie Best.

Two more housemates will enter during a pair of live shows on Friday night, airing at 9PM and 10:30PM.

Between now and then, Celebrity Big Brother 2017 continues nightly on Channel 5 at 9PM with the daily house highlights.
