The rebooted version of Celebrity Big Brother kicks off tonight.
The highly-anticipated new series will launch at 9pm on ITV in the UK, and Virgin Media Two in Ireland.
12 celebrities have signed up for the show, which will be confirmed during tonight’s launch episode.
While the full confirmed lineup is being kept under wraps, some high-profile names have already been linked to the series – including Louis Walsh, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Sharon Osbourne.
Check out the full rumoured lineup below:
Nikita Kuzmin

Nikita Kuzmin is best known for appearing on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.
On the last season, the professional dancer was partnered with West End star Layton Williams, and made it all the way to the finals.
David Potts

David Potts is no stranger to reality TV, having appeared on Ibiza Weekender.
Last year, the former holiday rep starred in The Big Celebrity Detox alongside Kerry Katona and Love Island’s Toby Aromolaran.
His other reality TV credits include Celebs Go Dating, Celebs on the Farm, Celebrity Karaoke Club and Celebrity Ghost Trip.
Bradley Riches

Bradley Riches has been rumoured to appear on CBB, after the success of the hit Netflix series Heartstopper.
A source told The Sun: “Brad really wants to fly the flag for autistic, queer people on a huge mainstream show like Celebrity Big Brother.”
“He was diagnosed with autism when he was nine and is passionate about being an advocate for his community.
“He’s keen to show the world that being neurodiverse isn’t something that holds you back, it’s a superpower.”
Zeze Mills

Social media star and cultural commentator Zeze Mills has also been rumoured to enter the Big Brother house.
She’s famed for her no holds barred interview style, and often gets the best out of her subjects.
Her Zeze Millz Show bio even reads: “If we can get them in a room with Zeze… It’s gloves off.”
Marisha Wallace

American actress Marisha Wallace is the next star reportedly set to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house.
She appeared on Broadway shows Aladdin and Something Rotten before becoming alternate lead Effie White in Dreamgirls, following in the footsteps of Glee star Amber Riley.
In 2022, the 38-year-old received an Olivier Award nomination for Best Actress for her work as Ado Annie in Oklahoma!
Colson Smith

Coronation Street favourite Colson Smith is also set to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house.
The 25-year-old is best known for playing Craig Tinker on the legendary soap.
A source has told The Sun: “Big Brother producers have been in talks with Colson for months and it looks like a done deal.”
“They’re thrilled he’s keen to enter the nation’s most famous house because he’s a big name already loved by millions of viewers and they were hellbent of securing someone from Corrie as it’s great cross-promotion for ITV.”
“Colson’s character Craig is a huge favourite with soap fans and he’s just as likeable and down to earth in real life so don’t be surprised if he ends up winning the whole thing. He’s got all the ingredients of a Celeb BB champion.”
Fern Britton
ITV
Fern Britton is best known for presenting This Morning for six years alongside Philip Schofield, before she was replaced by Holly Willoughby in 2009.
Insiders told The Sun: “She wants to show the public a different side to her — unscripted and unapologetic.
“She has a lot of stories to tell and she won’t hold back when it comes to her relationships with people like Phil.
“They don’t speak anymore so there are no bridges to burn as far as she is concerned.”
Louis Walsh

Insiders have claimed that Louis Walsh has landed himself a six-figure deal to appear on Celebrity Big Brother.
A “close associate” told The Sun: “He is one of the most intriguing signings for Celebrity Big Brother because he has almost half a century of experience in showbusiness to recall when he enters the house.”
“Viewers will be most interested in his memories of his time on The X Factor and working with huge music acts including Westlife and Boyzone.
“But there may be a few celebrities outside the house who are feeling nervous about what he might say, because Louis is notoriously outspoken.”
Louis has managed major bands like Westlife, Boyzone and Girls Aloud throughout his career, and famously appeared as a judge on The X Factor from 2004 – 2014, before he returned from 2016 to 2017.
Lauren Simon

The Real Housewives of Cheshire star Lauren Simon is reportedly entering the Big Brother house on Monday night.
The 46-year-old has been on the show since its launch in 2015.
Gary Goldsmith

The Princess Of Wales’ uncle Gary Goldsmith has reportedly negotiated a hefty fee with ITV for his appearance on CBB.
The controversial brother of Carol Middleton previously dodged jail time after being found guilty of hitting his fourth wife in a drunken row in 2017.
A source told The Sun: “The CBB team love him because of his link to Kate and the fact that he’s confident and loud and won’t hold back.”
“He’s made it clear he will talk about everything and anything, and he’s pretty outspoken when it comes to Harry and Meghan.”
“Gary also holds a deep affection for Kate and Wills and will be able to give a fascinating insight into what it’s really like being related to the future King and Queen.”
Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu

Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu shot to fame on Love Island in 2022, which she won with her now ex-boyfriend Davide Sanclimente.
She is now set for her next reality TV stint, and bosses will be hoping for villa and romance gossip.
Ekin-Su also recently appeared on the US version of The Traitors.
Levi Roots

Dragons’ Den star Levi Roots has also been reportedly snapped up by ITV bosses.
A source told The Mirror: “Levi will be great for the Celebrity Big Brother house. He’s got a few exciting projects coming up and he’s such a fun character.”
They added: “He’s self-made and is an inspiration to a new generation.”
Sharon Osbourne

Sharon Osbourne, another former X Factor judge, is also being lined-up for Celebrity Big Brother.
The TV personality, who was a judge on the show from 2004 to 2007, is a close friend of Louis Walsh.
A source said: “Sharon is a guest housemate and won’t be going in on launch night. Instead she will come in once the show has started and will be there for a few days.”
“The fee she wanted was eye-watering and in the end they struck a deal which meant she would go in for a shorter run.”
