X Factor's Amelia Lily joins Celebrity Big Brother 2017 line up

Celebrity Big Brother Summer 2017

Amelia Lily has become the latest X Factor star on Celebrity Big Brother 2017.

Amelia made it to the final of The X Factor in 2011 where she finished third and released a number of singles, including Number 2 hit You Bring Me Joy.

During the results of the first live show on the X Factor, mentor Kelly Rowland sent Amelia home but she was later given a lifeline and re-joined the finalists.

She made it all the way to Wembley and finished the show in third place.

The performer then moved into musical theatre with a successful West End debut in Green Day musical American Idiot.

Asked what she's looking forward to most about Celebrity Big Brother, Amelia said: "Meeting new people, doing tasks and having fun."

She added: "A team player. Someone who is caring and up for a laugh and party."

And describing herself in three words, Amelia said: "Fun, enthusiastic and excitable."

In her VT, Amelia revealed she was single and up for a flirty time inside the house.

Over the years The X Factor has become a regular source of Celebrity Big Brother housemates.

Other X Factor acts who have appeared in the Big Brother house include Rylan Clark, Jedward, Samantha Kay, Katie Waissel, Ryan Ruckledge, Stevi Ritchie, Chloe Jasmine and Chloe Khan.

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
