Celebrity Big Brother 2012 kicks off next week 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 next Wednesday’s live launch on Channel 5 – and we’ve already had more than one celeb reportedly drop out!
Soap actress Cheryl, famous for playing the late Heather Trott in BBC One soap Eastenders, is said to have agreed to a £175,000 deal. With Cheryl having admitted that she’d love to enter the house, and with a free schedule after leaving Eastenders, we’d be very surprised if we don’t see her inside this summer!
After a stint in the I’m A Celebrity jungle, Janice Dickson is now being lined up for a few weeks inside the Celebrity Big Brother house. She’s been offered £50,000, and we’d love it to be happen, although would hate to be the ones sharing the house with her!
Who? Rhian hit the headlines (sort of) last year after she was chatted up by presenter Vernon Kay by text. Not exactly the biggest claim to fame, but some times it’s the lesser known stars that prove to be the best in BB.
Another soap star amongst the rumours is Corrie star Julie Goodyear, who has reportedly agreed a £300,000 offer to enter the house come August.
Comic Julian Clary is quite a big name on this list, and seems somewhat out of place. Nonetheless, it’s claimed that the camp funny man has agreed a £325,000 deal to join the line up on Channel 5 later this year, we’re certainly hoping this one is true!
Model Jasmine Lennard has become one of the more recent rumours, with the ex of Simon Cowell set to spill all about her fling with the music mogul in the Celebrity Big Brother 2012 house in a few weeks’ time!
Ex of Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon, rapper MC Harvey hit the headlines earlier this year over claims he had a relationship with Cheryl Cole. No doubt Channel 5 bosses will be hoping that MC Harvey, real name Michael Harvey, Jr, will tell his side of the story in the house.
Model Dancia previously appeared in Channel 4 documentary Sex, Lies and Rinsing Guys. The one-off show followed the lives of Danica and similar girls who chase men for their money. Now the 22-year-old is set for the Celebrity Big Brother house and warns she knows how to get her own way!
Dog The Bounty Hunter (Duane Chapman)
American reality telly star Dog, real name Duane Chapman, is said to have agreed a deal to join this year's CBB line up. With his US series having been axed after more than 12 series, a spell in the BB house is sure to keep Dog in the public eye.
BB host Brian Dowling previously revealed that Coleen was top of the producer's wishlist, and now the Loose Woman presenter is set to be following in the footsteps of costar Denise Welch and enter the house this summer. Will Coleen manage to win just like Denise?
Other stars completing the line up are said to include a top London Olympic star and a "Playboy Price".
