At least two X Factor acts are set to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house this summer.

2010 finalist Katie Waissel and bootcamp reject from the same year Chloe Mafia are said to be on the line up.

The pair are two of the names on the leaked Celebrity Big Brother 2016 summer cast with the series launching at 9PM tonight on Channel 5.

While Katie's claim to fame stems from The X Factor, Chloe - now known as Chloe Khan - has gone on to ditch the singing in favour of modelling, recently gracing the cover of Playboy.

Although they have been strongly rumoured, Katie, Chloe nor any other names are officially confirmed for the new series of Celebrity Big Brother until they enter through the door tonight.

As it happens, another two X Factor acts have also been linked to the show as well.

Could last year's finalist Lauren Murray be the latest finalist to appear on Celebrity Big Brother?

"Never say never," Lauren teased recently. "You never know what's around the corner. There are two sides to every story and I think, with reality television, it's hard to know what side people are going to see.

"But its definitely an experience."

Union J singer Jaymi Hensley has also been tipped to join Celebrity Big Brother.

And if the performer doesn't appear in the line up this summer, he could well end up in the house in next January's series.

The Bit On The Side regular is a big fan of the show and his manager had teased there has been a "mention" of him joining the Channel 5 series in the near future.

"I know he likes the show," they told the Radio Times magazine. "If they [CBB] were interested, I'm sure he'd do it."

Celebrity Big Brother begins tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
