In less than seven days the Celebrity Big Brother house will open its doors to welcome a whole host of new housemates and, as Channel 5 continues to tease their identities, speculation about who they might be is mounting.


CBB 2015 contestant Katie Hopkins sent the rumour mill into overdrive with a cryptic tweet about Tuesday January 2nd, which many have presumed relates to a possible appearance on the show.

Meanwhile the official Big Brother account has shared a third teaser for a housemate who they “couldn’t be happier” to have in the new series.

“What I’ve discovered since coming out is I don’t feel as though I’m telling a lie or covering anything up and that is the most amazing gift”, the mystery housemate says.

But who could it be? Twitter sleuths have suggested everyone from transgender newsreader India Willoughby to former X Factor contestant Honey G. None of these suggestions have been confirmed or denied by Channel 5.

We do know one thing for certain, though. Boris Johnson’s sister, Rachel Johnson, will be going into the all-female house. Her participation in the series was confirmed on Christmas Eve.

Earlier this month it was announced that the new series would launch as an all-female edition of the show to ‘mark the centenary of women’s suffrage’.

Channel 5 revealed that the female celebs will be left to their own devices for the opening stages of the series before men are introduced later on.
