Is this the Celebrity Big Brother 2011 housemate line up?

Big Brother

The Celebrity Big Brother 2011 housemate line has seemingly been revealed over the past couple of days, with the newspaper rumours naming the famous names set to enter the house later this month. From US actresses to former girl group singers, it's a surprisingly good line up - if true!

Among those in the supposed line up are Baywatch star Pamela Anderson and The Only Way Is Essex babe Amy Childs, who quit the ITV2 reality series last week in order to appear on the new series of Big Brother.

R&B star and Whitney Houston's ex Bobby Brown is also set to enter, along with X Factor twins Jedward, who have already been filmed by Channel 5 for the series.


Big Fat Gypsy Weddings star Paddy Doherty is also on the bill, joined by reality flop and former Atomic Kitten Kerry Katona - reportedly paid a £250,000 fee - and her mum Sue, who has been offered £50,000 to take part.

US star Tara Reid is also in the mix, with bosses hoping the feisty blonde will live up to her party girl reputation - we're just unsure of how the 24/7 bar will go down with her!

David Hasselhoff's ex Pamela Bach, with whom he split from in 2006, is also in the Celebrity Big Brother housemate line up, with a source saying: "She’s primed and ready to spill the beans on him in that house."

The House of Commons Speaker’s wife Sally Bercow completes the list of Celebrity Big Brother housemates, despite her denials on social networking website Twitter yesterday.

Earlier today it was revealed that Tara Palmer-Tomkinson "considering" taking part in Celebrity Big Brother 2011, while other names linked to the show include 90s singer Sonia, The Real Hustle star Jessica-Jane Clement and The Saturdays singer Vanessa White.

Kerry Katona’s ex Brian McFadden meanwhile has been linked to a live special just 24 hours after the launch night.

Channel 5 have reportedly splashed out £6 million on this year's line up, which will be officially confirmed on launch night on August 18.
