A secret Olympic star is being lined up for Celebrity Big Brother 2012, it has been claimed.

According to the Daily Star, Channel 5 chiefs are being tight lipped over the identity of the sports icon.

They'll be entering the house when Celebrity Big Brother returns later this month.

“We’ve been in talks with this person for a few weeks now. They are very keen to do it," a source claimed. “We couldn’t wish for someone more topical to enter the most famous house in Britain.

“Everyone is talking about the Olympics. And we’re confident the public will get behind this surprise guest when they go in."

The source told the tabloid: “They will be TV gold, silver and bronze.

“It won’t just be Team GB but more Team GBB.”

Other celebs in this year's CBB line up are set to include EastEnder ­Cheryl Fergison and Dog The Bounty Hunter Duane Chapman.
