Celebrity Big Brother 2017: Jedward 'confirmed' to be joining the house tonight

Jedward have seemingly been confirmed to be joining the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 cast.

The twin duo, who first appeared on The X Factor in 2009, originally appeared in 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 The Sun newspaper today: “Love them or hate them, Jedward are compulsive viewing.

“And while some of the housemates are going to be familiar with them and what they’re like, the chances are the Americans will be in for a shock."

The source added: "It’s going to be great to see them getting to know Speidi – they think they’re the power duo of the house, but that could quickly change.”

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

And seeming to confirm their appearance tonight, pictures have shown the boys heading to the studios in North London.

Back on Tuesday night's launch, 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.

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 airs live tonight at 9PM and 10:30PM on Channel 5.
