The new season of “Celebrity Big Brother” will be here in a matter of days, and of course given Channel 5’s habit of super-secrecy, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that the network is keeping things hush-hush for as long as humanly possible.
Yet, there are a number of names starting to leak out via numerous sources, and given that we’re an expert on all things “X Factor” (and not an expert on much else when it comes to Z-list British celebrities) we feel like we’re best suited in this article touching on some of these names.
Sam Callahan – Is the show really so intent on getting former singing-show stars that they’re looking at contestants from years ago? We vaguely even remember the guy at this point. In the past, they’ve at least succeeded on scooping up people like Stevi Ritchie, Chloe Jasmine, and current “Bit on the Side” host Rylan Clark-Neal who were on recent seasons at the time they were appearing.
Jedward – They appeared on the show before, but given that there is a rumored twist revolving some All-Star returnees, getting them back could be a coup for producers looking to get the controversial duo on the screen once more.
Stacy Francis – She was actually on the American version of the show years ago, but is probably known more at this point for having some sort of spat with Whitney Houston prior to the legendary singer’s death.
Bianca Gascoigne – She barely qualifies, given that she didn’t even make it past the judges on the UK version after delivering a mediocre-at-best Mary J. Blige cover. She’s at this point probably more famous for other reality shows, and for being in the tabloid circuit.
