Celebrity Big Brother full line-up confirmed: Sarah Harding and Jemma Lucy to descend on Britain’s most famous house
Celebrity Big Brother’s full line-up has FINALLY been revealed, it seems.
The Channel 5 show has had numerous celebs pull out at the last minute, including Sinitta, John Leslie and The Human Ken Doll.
But now a final list of 16 celebrities has emerged – and there are some very famous names on the bill.
According to The Sun, the likes of Sarah Harding, Made In Chelsea’s Sam Thompson and Jemma Lucy will join Megan McKenna‘s ex Jordan Davies and ex-EastEnders star Shaun Williamson in the Channel 5 house on Tuesday.
Girls Aloud star Sarah will be entering the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Cheryl’s former band mate could very well lift the lid on her supposed affair with Danny Dyer – but is still unsure about whether going into the house is the right move for her.
An insider told The Sun: “Sarah is fully onboard.
“But she is not sure if she feels ready.
“She has been enjoying a career out of the spotlight recently and is not sure she wants to give up her low-key presence just yet.”
The Ex On The Beach star has promised to “sex up the house”.
And she’s unlikely to hold back when it comes to her famous exes – who included former CBB winner Stephen Bear and Gaz Beadle.
There’s also no love lost between her and Charlotte Crosby – who has also dated both of those men.
A source said: “Jemma’s not afraid to speak her mind so this series of CBB could be explosive!
“She makes for great TV and is seriously sexy so it’s bound to give ratings a boost.
“Her exes might have to keep a close eye on the show – you never know what Jemma might say.”
The original Love Islander and former Hollyoaks star will be making his reality TV comeback after an 11-year break.
Paul hit headlines in 2005 after his outrageous behaviour on the ITV2 show saw him sensationally removed.
In one furious clash, a drunk Paul rowed with a fellow former Hollyoaks actor and was escorted out of the villa for the evening.
After the show, Paul slammed it claiming he was “misrepresented” by editing.
He said: “They cut it down to an hour a night and picked out my mad bits.
“There were reasons for those actions and the viewers never saw the build-up to them.”
He also claimed he was the reason the show achieved successful ratings, adding: “If it wasn’t for me the show wouldn’t have done very well.”
After appearing on Celebrity Love Island, Danan enjoyed a brief career as a dating expert on his own ITV2 show where he assessed women’s dating prowess by dating them himself.
Megan McKenna’s ex may spill the beans on his fiery relationship with the TOWIE star – having got engaged after meeting on Ex On The Beach.
A source said: “The show turned her into reality TV gold and viewers can’t get enough of anything about her – even her ex.
“It’s why the bosses wanted Jordan – it will make for explosive television.”
Jordan is most famous for his tumultuous relationship with The Only Way Is Essex star Megan McKenna, whom he was engaged to.
They appeared as a power couple on 2016’s Ex On The Beach, which was filmed in 2015; with Jordan even getting down on one knee in the show’s final episode.
However the engagement were short-lived, as the pair split in the early months of 2016, though Jordan said that his ex had done him a “favour” as their engagement scenes aired.
Speaking to the MailOnline at the time, Jordan admitted: “Megan’s actually done me a favour, because I gave up my image to be with her.”
The Absolutely Fabulous actress has been rumoured for CBB on numerous occasions – including last series.
Last year, she was one of the first stars linked to the lineup, however when it came to the launch night, she unexpectedly didn’t appear in the show opener alongside the likes of Christopher Biggins, Marnie Simpson and axed EastEnders star Ricky Norwood.
The next day, Helen took to Twitter to explain the no show.
She tweeted a picture of a London Evening Standard article explaining her absence, along with the words: “You can’t win em all, especially if you’re not there… #laughingquitelot.”
In the article, she explained the mix-up: “I think they thought they saw me going into the hotel which the producers put the contestants in.
“But it wasn’t me, it was Sam Fox. We do look similar from behind, you know.”
Could this finally be the year she makes it in?
The TV psychic – best known for Most Haunted – has signed up for CBB.
A source said: “Derek can’t wait to show viewers at home what he’s got to offer in the house. It’s going to be a very exciting series.”
Derek – who constantly denies he’s a fraud – famously once claimed Madeleine McCann is dead, following a message from the spirit world that told him: “She’s not on this earth any more”.
The medium – who was said to have disgusted the McCann family with his claims – allegedly added that the child would soon be reincarnated after joining the “spirit world”.
The 62-year-old said to The Sun: “I know her parents are convinced Maddie is alive and I’m really sorry – but the little one has been over in the spirit world for some time.
“I don’t think it’ll be long before she reincarnates.
“When children pass over who haven’t had full lives I believe they choose the time to come back in the same form again – as another little girl.”
Will he say more controversial things like this on CBB?
Former X Factor hopeful Amelia Lily has signed up to CBB – after her ex Frankie Cocozza went on the show a few years ago.
A source said: “Amelia was a big hit on the X Factor with viewers falling in love with her big voice and personality.
“She’s sure to make an impression in the house and fans of the show will no doubt enjoy watching her day in day out.”
Amelia is now dating Steve Rushton – who previously dated Miley Cyrus.
Steve dated singer Miley back in 2009 before her twerking days when she was 16 and (probs a bit more innocent), when he appeared on the Hannah Montana: The Movie.
Dawn shot to fame on The Real Housewives of Cheshire, on which she shows off the £15million mansion she shares with her ex-footballer husband Ashley Ward.
She’s going to be in this series of CBB – but was originally going to be joined by Sinitta, who she was found guilty of assaulting last year.
However, the X factor star was axed before the series started, due to “diva demands”, including a bodyguard to watch her sleep and regular visits from her pets.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is most famous for her husband Eddie Cibrian having an affair with LeAnn Rimes.
As well as having a dramatic life, she has also previously made her ex pay £8000 for designer vagina surgery.
Shaun is best known for playing Barry Evans in EastEnders – on which he fell to his death after being accidentally pushed off a cliff by Janine Butcher.
A source said: “He played an iconic character and everyone recognises him.
“Soaps fans will love him in the house and he’s going to go down a storm with viewers.”
Chad shot to fame on The Bachelor and went on to star in The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise.
He then also starred in Famously Single.
Now he’s going into Celebrity Big Brother. Not fame hungry at all then…
Trisha Paytas is a former stripper, who now gives out life advice on everything from fashion and beauty to relationships on YouTube.
She’s become so popular she’s been on Modern Family, and even starred in Amy Winehouse’s Tears Dry On Their Own video, as well as an Eminem video.
Sam has been on Made In Chelsea since 2013.
Louise Thompson’s younger brother is a favourite on the E4 TV show, and is one half of an on-off Made In Chelsea relationship with Tiffany Watson.
He’ll be going into the CBB house to make a name for himself outside of Chelsea.
Mob Wives star Marissa Jade is going into CBB.
The former model and actress has appeared in TV shows including Gossip Girl and The Good Wife.
Sandi is best known for sitting next to her pal Sandra Martin and watching TV on Gogglebox.
Having quit the Channel 4 show, she’ll now be on the other side of the box when she goes into CBB.
No doubt, she’ll be trying to become as big a star as Scarlett Moffatt – who swapped the sofa for the I’m A Celebrity jungle last year.
A source said: “andi will be great on Celebrity Big Brother – but it might take viewers a few days to get used to seeing her without Sandra.
“When she left the show last year it was because she wanted to pursue a music career, so being on the show will definitely help her boost her profile.”
Chris de Burgh’s daughter famously won Miss World in 2003.
However, she later caused controversy when she posed for a raunchy nude shoot in German Playboy.
Not quite the clean-cut image Miss World requires.
Will she be good or bad in CBB?
