The dancer was axed from this year's BBC One series, a decision which he has been rather vocal about.
Now while his wife and fellow Strictly pro Ola Jordan takes to the Strictly dancefloor, James will is set to be locked up inside the CBB house.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper this afternoon: "James is very excited to be joining such a booming show.
"Viewers of Strictly know he is a strong character, so don't expect him to pull any punches with housemates."
Other names tipped for the CBB line up this year include TOWIE cast member Lauren Goodger entering, Benefits star White Dee, Made In Chelsea cast member Stephanie Pratt and Corrie actor Michael Le Vell.
More names currently going around the rumour are Gogglebox’s George Gilbey, Hollywood star Gary Busey and most recently, magician Paul Daniels and his wife Debbie McGee.
Of course no one is confirmed until they actually step into the house come tomorrow evening.
CBB begins with the live show on Monday on Channel 5 from 9PM, hosted by Emma Willis.
