Celebrity Big Brother 2012: The housemate line up (probably)

Natasha Giggs

Celebrity Big Brother 2012 kicks off tonight and there's been rumours abound about just which stars will become housemates on the new look show. We've been collecting those rumours, getting some gossip, and have come out with what we think will probably be the Celebrity Big Brother 2012 housemate line up...

Of course, nothing is confirmed or official until the housemates step into the house during tonight's live launch on Channel 5 - and we've already had more than one celeb reportedly drop out!

Frankie Cocozza

We first reported on Frankie Cocozza's Big Brother aspirations back in November, just days after the singer was kicked off of The X Factor. Telling bosses he'd be up for having sex in the house, it's been claimed that Channel 5 chiefs have agreed to a £30,000 deal which will see the teenager enter tonight.

Kirk Norcross

TOWIE hunk Kirk has already confirmed he's quit the ITV2 show, paving the way for him to follow in the footsteps of Amy Childs and take part in Celebrity Big Brother. Talking about the show this week, Kirk too admitted he'd be up for ‘getting his willy out’ whilst locked up at Big Brother's pleasure.

Michael Madsen

Hollywood actor Michael Madsen is another star we reckon is sure to be amongst the Celebrity Big Brother line up when it’s revealed this evening. The big screen star, famous for his role of Mr Blonde in Reservoir Dogs, is sure to cause a stir amongst the group.

Georgia Salpa

Joining the trio of guys will almost certainly be Irish model Georgia Salpa, with her management team having given away the not-so-well kept secret on Facebook last night! The brunette beauty could cause arguments between the blokes!

Nicola McClean

Also preparing for a scrap is WAG and model Nicola McClean, having apparently agreed to a £50,000 deal to take part in the series this month. However despite having not even entered the house yet, Nicola has already started a row with another of the rumoured contestants (see below)!

Natasha Giggs

Famous for sleeping with her brother-in-law, Ryan, Natasha Giggs is also set to enter tonight, if only to clash with Nicola. The pair have argued multiple times over the past few months, with Nicola saying this week that Natasha’s only entering to make money from other's personal lives! Natasha hit back however, saying that the model had "no life". The pair are sure to cause fireworks for the cameras...

Denise Welch

Having tried her hand at ice skating last year, this January Loose Woman Denise Welch is reportedly set to join Celebrity Big Brother! She'll be joining the other celebs in the house for a three week stay starting today, taking home £100,000 for her troubles. Good work if you can get it.

Natalie Cassidy

Eastender turned Strictly Come Dancing star Natalie Cassidy is planning on making her comeback on Celebrity Big Brother this month after a rather rough twelve months. The actress has faced a split from her husband after being assaulted, but now wants to focus on the future.

The rest...

That's eight of the twelve celebs, and there's been plenty more rumours about those remaining four spots! Names linked to the show include comic Ruby Wax, Pineapple Dance Studios star Andrew Stone, Lindsay Lohan and even two former Playboy twins!

Other celebs rumoured are MC Romeo, rapper Wiley and Boy George - despite his denials!

More recently there's been talk that Georgia's ex Calum Best could also be entering, that'd be something to watch!

Find out who eventually does make it inside when Celebrity Big Brother 2012 starts tonight on Channel 5.
