Former Celebrity Big Brother housemate Amy Childs reckons Cheryl Fergison will provide the comedy in the new series.

Eastenders star Cheryl has been widely tipped to appear on the show this summer, with tabloids claiming she's agreed to a £175,000 deal.

[cat]Celebrity Big Brother 2012[/cat] will hit screens in May, and Amy reckons Cheryl will make a great housemate.

"I was so happy to hear Cheryl Fergison is going on Celebrity Big Brother," she said. "I loved her when I met her on Loose Women. She's going to provide the comedy in the house, without a doubt!"

A source told The Sun previously: "Her character of downtrodden Heather is so different from the actual actress.

"Cheryl is hilarious. She's got a really great sense of humour and producers wanted to sign her up the minute she was written out of EastEnders."

The show is set to air this August.
