Celebrity Big Brother 2016 housemates REVEALED: Meet the cast

Hoping to give the best of British are UK entertainment legends Christopher Biggins and Samantha Fox and other Brits who've packed their cases for a stint in CBB are Storage Hunters UK star Colin Newell, controversial radio host James Whale, Apprentice and Loose Women star Saira Khan, Eastenders actor Ricky Norwood and Anthea Turner's ex husband Grant Bovey.

But just who is in the house for the next month?

The 67-year-old has also featured on other reality shows including Come Dine With Me and MasterChef.

The Sun reported Thursday that Farage had narrowly missed out on appearing in an upcoming series of Celebrity Big Brother because Channel 5 would not pay his fee, but that he was " holding out" to feature in I'm a Celebrity.

American personalities rumoured to be appearing on Celebrity Big Brother include Danity Kane singer Aubrey O'Day, Mob Wives star Renee Graziano and pop star Ariana Grande's half-brother Frankie. Being nice is a strength.

He said: "There have been a couple of negative press stories about myself and you'll hear the story in the house, but a mistake is only a mistake if you carry on repeating it. I do have a game plan, to be cool, be calm, it's not that serious, just laugh man".

Scotty T won CBB in February.

And usually Big Brother punishes the housemates by turning off the hot water, electricity or removing their food.

Ahead of the launch of the new series of Celebrity Big Brother, Rylan Clark-Neal revealed that this year's "villain" would be a female contestant.

She was previously engaged to The Only Way Is Essex star Ricky Rayment and has recently split up with her Geordie Shore co-star Aaron Chalmers.
