Celebrity Big Brother 2018 spoilers

The summer Celebrity Big Brother series is reported to have a 'scandal and comebacks' theme.

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."

An insider added to The Sun: "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."

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 line up

Charlotte Dawson has been tipped to join the new cast of Celebrity Big Brother 2018 in the summer. The reality star, daughter of late comic Les Dawson, last year appeared on Celebs Go Dating.
