Celebrity Big Brother launch date confirmed and Made In Chelsea’s Sam Thompson rumoured to be going in

Rumours are rife and they are normally based in fact

| Updated:

Right now, Love Island is what most of the reality TV-watching population has been hooked to, which has left Big Brother on Channel 5 struggling to interest even the voice over guy.

But with our glossy villa mates waving goodbye to us on Monday night, we will finally have more time to focus on other telly shows. And we won’t have long to wait.

Just as series 15 of Big Brother limps to the finish line, we can look forward to Celebrity Big Brother kicking off a few days later on August 1.

And it looks like it could be a good un! Among the stars so far strongly rumoured to be going in are Sarah Harding, who many viewers think could make for some interesting TV. If not all for the right reasons.

Producers are hoping she’ll snipe about Cheryl, but we reckon she’s too professional for that! However, we do worry about the effect the strain and stress of the show might have on the singer as the weeks progress.

Also lined up to appear on the show is Brandi Glanville, a star of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.

She’s tipped to be good value as she is pretty outspoken and hilarious.

She is the woman who was married to Sunset Beach actor Eddie Cibrian who dumped her unceremoniously for LeAnn Rimes.

She wrote a book about their bitter breakdown called Drinking and Tweeting which is a page turner and half.

Other names in the mix include Jordan Davies from Ex On the Beach and Ibiza Weekender, Helen Lederer, Gogglebox’s Sandi Bogle and potentially a return of Stephen Bear, which would be just awful!

Another name just thrown in the mix is Sam Thompson from Made In Chelsea.

According to the Daily Star, the posho has been offered a “large sum of money” to appear on the chaotic show.

Previously, his MIC castmate Ollie Locke has appeared on the reality show.
