Celebrity Big Brother 2017 has its confirmed line up but which celebs turned the show down?

Last night saw the official Celebrity Big Brother cast revealed with 15 (sort of) celebrities entering the house.

But a number of stars lined up turned down the chance to be a part of the series.

They include X Factor's Honey G who instead is focusing on her debut album.

Her manager has said we definitely won't be seeing Honey G in the house this year as she's heading into the studio.

Honey G's agent told the Mirror newspaper: "Her priority is concentrating on her music, rapping and producing. She's currently busy writing her album.

Meanwhile, Real Housewives of Cheshire star Dawn Ward is said to have pulled out just a day before launch night.

It's apparently left producers desperate to find a last minute replacement.

“Dawn has decided not to take part in the show at the very last minute," a source told The Sun newspaper. “She may have done reality TV in the past but she got cold feet about doing CBB."

However others have insisted Dawn was never on the line up in the first place.

Meanwhile, TOWIE's Pete Wicks, who was said to have signed up, also turned down a place on Celebrity Big Brother, The Sun previously reported.

TV presenter John Leslie is another said to have left the line up having "signed on only to pull out".

And 'Human Ken doll' Rodrigo Alves supposedly withdrew from the show in order to have more surgery.

"Roddy was due to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2018, but then things got moved around and he was scheduled to join the next series starting in August," a source told OK! magazine.

They added: "But now, he's decided to go off around the world and party for a month and also get some more surgery on his nose which he has wanted for a very long time."

Those who are in the CBB house include YouTuber Trisha Paytas, X Factor's Amelia Lily, Gogglebox’s Sandi Bogle, TV psychic Derek Acorah and Absolutely Fabulous star Helen Lederer and Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding.

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 launches on Tuesday, August 1 at 9PM on Channel 5.
