Celebrity Big Brother 2018's summer series may have a 'comebacks' theme, it's been claimed.

According to reports, the new line up of celebs will be focused on those who are "bouncing back" from "drama" in the public eye.

A source told the Daily Mail newspaper: "This year's show is about people in the spotlight, who have hit a tough time in the public eye.

"They are looking for people who have had dramas or issues in their life and are bouncing back."

One of the names rumoured is American porn actress Stormy Daniels, who is currently at the centre of controversy surrounding president Donald Trump.

The 39-year-old has been involved in a legal dispute with the US president over allegations she had an affair with him in 2006. He has denied the fling, which has been the focus of many US news stories.

However, Stormy's lawyer Michael Avenatti has insisted she had "no interest" in taking part.

He said: "We get hundreds of people approaching us every day. She has no interest in doing it. She is not going to do it."

Other celebs rumoured for the Celebrity Big Brother 2018 cast this summer include Celebs Go Dating's Charlotte Dawson, The Chuckle Brothers, X Factor and Ex On The Beach's Casey Johnson plus Goggleboxer Sandra Martin.

Also rumoured for the show has been star of Netflix series Queer Eye, Jonathan Van Ness.

It could well be Celebrity Big Brother's last EVER run with Channel 5 still to renew the show beyond 2018.

Hosts Emma Willis and Rylan Clark-Neal have been left in the dark as to the future.

"I’m hoping it’s not the last Big Brother," Emma said this week. “I hope they recommission it. I love it. They did brilliant things in January. I think they could do that for the summer series.”

"I’m hoping it doesn’t go anywhere, but no one’s told me anything yet,” she told The Sun’s Fabulous magazine. "I would love it to make 2020. A nice round number and 20 years would be amazing.”

"I do think that if you get Big Brother right, if you keep the essentials of what it is – a psychological experiment of how different people react in an unrealistic situation – it’s something that can keep going."
