Celebrity Big Brother is returning to our TV screens in January 2018 and we couldn’t be more excited for the drama that’s set to unfold.
But in a twist, the show will start with an all-female line-up, to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the suffragette movement.
So who’s rumoured to be appearing in the next series of CBB on Channel 5? After Sarah Harding won in 2017, we take a look at the potential housemates for the 2018 edition…
The journalist – and brother of Boris Johnson – was confirmed to be the first housemate taking part in CBB 2018. Rachel – whose father Stanley Johnson took part in I’m A Celeb this year – was announced to be joining the show’s all-female line-up via Big Brother’s Twitter account.
The Apprentice 2017 star is tipped to join the CBB house when it returns in January, after failing to win Lord Sugar’s investment in The Apprentice.

The former Made In Chelsea star is reportedly the next celeb to be joining I’m A Celebrity, according to The Sun. Channel 5 bosses are hoping she’ll reveal all about her rumoured fling with David Walliams.
The I’m A Celebrity 2017 contestant has been offered a spot on Celebrity Big Brother a number of times, but says he’ll only go in the house if ‘the money was right’, even if he thinks it’s a ‘freak show’.
He said on his talkRADIO show: ‘I had been offered it four times. This time, due to certain circumstances, I approached them. I know it’s a freak show. [But] if the money was right, I’d do Big Brother.’
The Mrs Brown’s Boys star has reportedly turned down a £150,000 fee to appear, saying he’d be ‘too homesick’.
The Irish actor, 62, told the Daily Star: ‘I had a tentative chat about Celebrity Big Brother but I just decided it’s not for me. I’d be homesick.’
Fans have speculated that the Ex On The Beach star is joining the line-up after a trailer was released which sounds like it has her accent on the voiceover.
A clip posted on Big Brother social accounts included a disguised female voice revealing whether they’ll bring their ‘womanly charms’ to the house.
Charlotte’s fans went wild for the short clip and immediately tweeted to say that it sounds like the reality star’s accent.
The Tattoo Fixers star is remaining coy on her rumoured appearance, but responded to a fan’s Twitter question with a pair of eyes… very cryptic.
TV host India made history as the UK’s first transgender newsreader and apparently Channel 5 bosses are desperate to sign her up. A source told The Sun Online that she’s ‘in talks’ to sign up.
The source said: ‘She’s outspoken and would be amazing television.’
The Ultimo founder has been linked to CBB for a while, but has yet to take part – she’s allegedly turned down a £350k fee to appear in the past.
A rep for Michelle confirmed to Metro.co.uk that she’s turned the show down this year.
The former Corrie star is apparently ‘in talks’ to appear in 2018, with a source saying CBB producers have already met with Shobna’s agent to get her signed up.
Jacqueline Jossa and Lorna Fitzgerald
The EastEnders actresses have confirmed they are leaving the soap, and are linked to the CBB show. The bookies have got Jacqueline’s odd of her reality TV debut at 10/1, with her on-screen sister’s odds currently at 12/1.
Sinitta was recently snubbed for The X Factor in favour of Cheryl who took her place as Simon’s aide and sources say she’s ready to ‘dish the dirt’.
The Made In Chelsea star supported brother Sam when he appeared on CBB in 2017 and has appeared on the Big Brother spin-off show, Bit on the Side. Could this be the year she joins the main show?
Laura is famous for being in the car with Wayne Rooney when he was pulled over for drink driving, with bosses keen to sign her up to reveal what really happened between the pair. She’s reportedly asked for a bigger pay cheque after turning down a £55k offer.
