Celebrity Big Brother bosses have reportedly axed Sinitta from this year’s line-up because of her “ridiculous demands”.
It was rumoured that the singer would be heading into the CBB house but she revealed she would only go on the show if certain demands were met.
These included a swearing ban, her personal security guard to be present in the house, and visits from her puppy.
But the show’s bosses have refused her diva demands branding them “ridiculous”.
An insider for the show told the Daily Star: “We were thrilled to get Sinitta on board as she is a laugh and could let slip some embarrassing secrets about Simon Cowell.
“But her demands were the most ridiculous we’ve ever seen.”
The 53-year-old previously told OK! Magazine: “I just asked for a few things that would make it nice because they’ve asked me every year and I’ve always said no. But if these things could happen, then I could do it.”
Opening up about her personal requests she explained: “I want a swearing ban, because I don’t swear and people shouldn’t be allowed to swear at me or around me.
“I asked for a bodyguard who would stand with me at all times, especially when I’m asleep. If they provide alcohol then I want tequila because it’s all I drink. Quite reasonable, really.
“If I last more than halfway I want my puppy to visit me.
“The producer said it’s the most ridiculous rider they’d ever had. It has gone a bit quiet, I must admit. But if you don’t ask, you don’t get!”
The Channel 5 show is set to return to our screens August 3.
And the show’s producers are willing to pull out all the stops to make the series explosive.
There are many famous faces reported to be in the line-up including former Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding, TOWIE star Bobby Norris and most recently Absolutely Fabulous star Helen Lederer.
It’s also been rumoured that some familiar faces from past shows could be making a comeback.
Lauren Harries, who appeared on the show in 2013, Kellie Maloney, from the 2014 series, and Rhian Sugden, who came fourth in the 2012 series, are all rumoured to be making a return.
Lauren, 38, told The Sun Online she would love to go back in. She said: “I need to go back in! There have been petitions, I get hundreds of notifications a day, I can’t go outside as people are asking why I’m not in the house!”
Meanwhile Rhian, 30, admitted: “I would love to go back in and experience it properly. I am more mature now and less hot headed.
“My time was ruined in the house, I went in and had to lie about having a boyfriend at the time and it got me in all kinds of trouble.”
But the official line-up has not yet been confirmed.
Presenters Emma Willis and Rylan Clark-Neal are set to return to hosting duties.
The dramatic instalment is set to be “bigger and hotter than ever” as a source revealed: “The Big Brother house is undergoing a massive change to get summer ready for its new celebrity guests.”
We can’t wait!
