Celebrity Big Brother bosses want 'controversial' housemates for summer cast

Emma Willis

The Celebrity Big Brother 2018 line up this summer will reportedly be full of 'controversial' names.

Show bosses are apparently after outspoken celebrities for what could be the last ever series.

One of them is said to be Kieran Hayler, the estranged husband of former Celebrity Big Brother winner herself Katie Price.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Celebrity Big Brother execs plan on having a lot of fun when they select their housemates for this season’s show. The more scandalous, the better.

“They want their stars to be as outspoken as possible, with relevant controversy attached to their name. They really want to create a buzz. Kieran would be an amazing signing and now he has nothing to lose.”

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

Other celebs tipped for the Celebrity Big Brother 2018 line up 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.

It could well be Big Brother's final year on UK TV with Channel 5 yet to renew the show beyond 2018.

Bit On The Side's Rylan Clark-Neal recently said: “I can’t imagine TV without Big Brother. I’d love to see it make 20 years — of course I would."

Rylan said that there "are changes coming" to the show in summer to help it compete against the likes of Love Island.

The former CBB winner explained: “I think it’s time to make Big Brother what it was.

“I’ve always had one­ ­million per cent faith in the format and that it can be the greatest show on telly.”

And Emma said last month: "I’m hoping it’s not the last Big Brother. I hope they recommission it. I love it."

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 will air on Channel 5 this summer.
