First up is EastEnders legend Shaun Williamson.

Shaun, 51, is best known for his role as Barry Evans in the BBC soap.

An insider told The Sun: “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.”

Joining him is former Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding.

The singer signed up for the show and following her latest rumoured affair with soap actor Danny Dyer it seems she could have a lot to tell.

A source said: “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.”

Reality star Jordan Davies, best known for his antics on Ex On The Beach, will be heading in.

And he could end up spilling all about his on/off relationship with Megan McKenna.

An insider told the publication: “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.”

Another reality star in the mix is Jemma Lucy.

Known for her racy antics on Ex On The Beach she definitely won’t hold back in the CBB house.

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.”

Helen Lederer is the next housemate packing her bags to head in.

This isn’t the only time the Absolutely Fabulous star has been offered a chance to go in.

But what kind of housemate will she make?

TV Psychic Derek Acroah is the next celeb up for the challenge.

“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,” an insider said.

The star is best known for his work on Most Haunted.

Gogglebox star Sandi Bogle is also in the line-up.

A source said: “Sandi 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.”

With the current series of Big Brother set to end tonight bosses have just four days to turn the house into a “top celeb retreat”.

A source said: “Our celebrities will take a break from their hectic schedules for a stay in the country’s top celeb retreat… the Celebrity Big Brother house.

“It’s sure to be holiday heaven for some and a holiday from hell for others.”

This will be amazing!
