Thereâs a Love Island shaped hole in all of our lives, and we desperately need something to fill the void.
Although Great British Bake Off will be back on our screens soon, it just doesnât have the same level of drama, which is where the new series of Celebrity Big Brother comes in.
The âeye of the stormâ trailer has just been released for the series which some are saying may be the last.
Check it out, as well as the rumoured contestants for 2018.
When is Celebrity Big Brother back on?
The 22nd series of CBB starts on Friday 17 August when Emma Willis will be ushering the contestants into the house.
It will be shown on Channel 5 as it has been since 2011 but it has not been confirmed how long the series will run for.
Who are the rumoured contestants?
Could this actually happen? Well according to the rumour-mongers we could indeed be seeing Meghan Markleâs half-sister jetting over from Florida for a spell in the CBB house â with reports suggesting sheâs pretty high on the priority list. âThe theme for this summerâs CBB series is understood to be âScandalâ so Sam is ideal for this,â a source told the Daily Star.
Noel Edmonds has also joined the rumourmill for the upcoming series of Celebrity Big Brother.
Channel 5 bosses are apparently âdesperateâ to sign Noel and this year are going to leave confirming contestants involved right until the last minute to ensure they have enough time to try and snare their must-haves.
One TV insider told The SunÂ of the Deal Or No Deal host: âNoel is one of the most recognisable faces on the box.Â Heâs been a household name for decades and producers know he is someone who viewers will be interested in.Â He isnât someone who can be easily convinced to do a reality show, but theyâre doing their best to get him to sign on the dotted line.â
Celebrity Big Brother could be about to play host to Hollywood royalty, with the news that Kirstie Alley â star of Look Whoâs Talking and Cheers â has signed on the dotted line to take part.
âSheâs a Hollywood legend and has plenty of juicy stories to tell,â an insider told The Sun. âWith the theme of retribution and stars talking about their own publicity storms, Kirstie couldnât be better suited.
The Towie star is heading on in to the house, apparently, with the news followed by a cryptic tweet from Jacqueline Jossa â later deleted â which led to speculation she wasnât too pleased by the news.
TV medium Psychic Sally Morgan, who has made a name for herself by contacting those in the afterlife and predicting the future, is reportedly set for a stint in the Elstree compound.
After years of openly stating that she would love to join the show, The Sun Online are reporting that sheâs now signed on the dotted line.Â Metro.co.uk has contacted Celebrity Big Brother and they stated that they would not comment on speculation over housemates.
Sally has been an active psychic and medium since the age of four, and has since been given her own TV shows on ITV and Sky, released and autobiography, and predicted a series of spooky things.Â She was also trusted by the late Princess Diana before her death in 1997.
Katie Priceâs estranged husband has been mentioned in the same breath as the words Celebrity Big Brother, amid the possibility that this summerâs series could have a âretributionâ theme. âIn January the theme did really well and now they think the idea of retribution could be a ratings winner,â a source explained to The Sun. Fair enough.
The former Love Islander is also being eyed for a spot in the house â which could potentially lead to fireworks following rumours that she and Dan Osbourne became close as he reportedly battled relationship woes with Jacqueline Jossa. Not to mention all the juicy Love Island gossip we might get out of her too.
Ryan Thomas is tipped to be the latest Corrie star to take up residence in the Elstree compound â although given heâs already survived The Island With Bear Grylls CBB should potentially be a breeze.
Transgender model Talulah-Eve had been all set to go into the house in January but reportedly pulled out at the last minute after India Willoughby signed up for the series. She was also rumoured to be taking part in 2017, so we reckon this one is long overdue â and rumour suggests it could finally happen.
Model Chloe has been in the news lately after being kidnapped in Italy last summer â with the man she accused, Luzasz Herba, sentenced to almost 17 years in jail for the crime earlier this month. Now sheâs being tipped for the CBB house.
âChloe has previously said that she wouldnât do reality TV, but she is in talks to do the next series of Celebrity Big Brother,â an insider told The Sun. âThe premise of the series is retribution and people who have been wronged, so she definitely fits the bill from that perspective.â
The TOWIE star is known to be a big fan of the show, and has confirmed he has met with CBB bosses about a possible appearance â could he follow in the footsteps of his pal Gemma Collins and move into the house?
âIâve watched it literally since series one day one, and Iâm on BOTS most series to be fair and I think Iâd quite fancy the challenge of doing it, because Iâm such a fan of the show,â he told The Sun. Frankly weâre quite surprised he hasnât done it already.
The Ex On The Beach star is being considered a good bet to enter the house when the series returns, following the popularity of her reality show co-star Jess Impiazzi in the last series. We could totally see this one happening.
Jonathan Van Ness
Yasssss indeed â Queer Eyeâs flamboyant grooming expert is indeed being tipped for a spot on Celebrity Big Brother, and we are so on board with this idea.
âBosses know what a hit Queer Eye has become and everyoneâs obsessed with Jonathan,â an insider revealed.
âThe show has become an international success and Jonathan would make amazing TV for the show.â
Former S Club 7-er Paul has emerged as a potential candidate for the house after admitting he was a) broke and b) had been turned down for Iâm A Celebrity â not that heâs had the best things ot say about the show. âWhen you look at some of the people they put in, it really is extended friends of famous people. Cousins of friends,â he previously pointed out. Ouch.
Sinittaâs such a regular fixture on TV youâd have thought by now sheâd have done Celebrity Big Brother â but she hasnât, despite coming close last year and dropping out amid reports that sheâd made some pretty stringent demands on producers (tequila and a visit from her puppy among them). However those rumours that sheâs being lined up for the house just wonât go away â so could this finally be the year?
Celebrity Big Brother is known for bringing comedy legends to the party â and Paul and Barry have been tipped to be the latest comic duo to join in the fun in the house.
Barry has previously confirmed the pair have had talks about taking part but that ânothing ever came of it,â adding: âI think they thought we werenât nasty enough.â
However Paul has admitted theyâre game, saying: âMaybe one day weâll give it a go. âIt would be fun, as long as theyâve got whisky in there and not just beer and wine.â
Georgia May Foote
The former Corrie actress was a big hit when she appeared on Strictly Come Dancing in 2015, making it all the way to the final â could a spot on Celebrity Big Brother follow? Bosses are reportedly keen to sign her up.
And speaking of ex-Strictly people, Brendanâs also being considered for a spot in the house following his abrupt exit from Strictly earlier this year. Weâre sure heâd have no short of gossip to spill from the ballroom if he did take part.
