X Factor reject Chloe Mafia set for Celebrity Big Brother 2016 summer line up

Chloe Mafia

X Factor reject Chloe Mafia is reportedly set to sign up for Celebrity Big Brother this summer.

The controversial singer appeared on The X Factor back in 2010 and made it through to bootcamp before getting the axe.

Since then she's been a regular in the tabloids for her new life in America as a model under the name Chloe Khan, even appearing on the front page of Playboy.

Could Celebrity Big Brother be her next reality TV appearance?

“Chloe was one of the X Factor’s most controversial ever contestants when she appeared on the show, but when she was booted off people thought she would just fade away," a source said today.

They explained to The Sun newspaper: “In fact she went out to the US and made an absolute fortune. She has become a bit of a star on the last few years and CBB has to fork out a lot of money to get her in the house.

“They know she can be absolutely outrageous and won’t hold back in any way. She speaks her mind and will not take abuse from anyone. She is going to be an explosive housemate and will make for amazing viewing.”

Following her X Factor exit, Chloe moved to the States where she set up an online webcamming business and now employs 50 girls and makes £1 million a year.

She told The Sun about her new life: “My lifestyle is pretty incredible now — it’s mansions and private jets and everything else that I could only imagine when I was younger."

Other celebrities tipped to appear on the new line up include Mob Wives' Renee Graziano, Made In Chelsea's Spencer Matthews, Union J's Jaymi Hensley and former I'm A Celebrity camper Lady C.

Celebrity Big Brother returns to Channel 5 later this summer.
