But what we’ve all been wondering is just when the men will appear…

Well, according to The Sun, males will be introduced to the famous compound just four days after launch night.

Journalist Rachel Johnson, who is the sister of Foreign Secretary Boris and daughter of I’m A Celebrity star Stanley, confirmed her participation last week.

“I am a firm believer that you only regret the things in life you don’t do, not the things you do do,” she wrote in her Daily Mail column.

Rachel said she was asked annually to be on Celebrity Big Brother and rarely gave it a second thought, until this year’s decision to make the show all about female empowerment.

She explained: “Not a lot of people know this, but my mother was born a Fawcett, and a statue of my distant forebear, the leading suffragist Millicent, after whom my daughter Milly is named, is going up in Parliament Square next year in commemoration of female suffrage.

“It will be the first statue of a woman in the square. It fitted. Sort of.”
