Will it be chaos or calm?

We are just a few days away from ringing in the New Year. And the TV line-up come 2017 looks as exciting as ever. One of the first reality shows to kick off as January rolls around is Celebrity Big Brother’s All Stars and New Stars.

Making its debut on January 3rd, the Channel 4 programme will feature 24 days of celebrity challenges, chatter and no doubt a controversial scene or two!

While the full contestant list hasn’t been confirmed, it will come as no surprise that the rumour mill has already gone into overdrive. Here are the celebs that may be walking through the doors of the famed GBB house.

Coleen Nolan


The Loose Women star has recently admitted her marriage could be in trouble, and a stint in the GBB house could provide the space she needs to mull over her issues with hubby Ray.

An insider told The Daily Star: “Everyone is a bit shocked but Coleen has said she will do it.

“It’s a delicate time so after Christmas she might change her mind but she’s very much on board.”

This would be the second CBB stint for the 51-year-old. She first entered the CBB household in 2012, coming second place. The TV panellist clashed with a number of her fellow contestants, branding Coronation Street star Julie Goodyear a “fake”.

The glamour model and former WAG is also no stranger to the CBB house, and walked away as winner in 2015. Despite an almighty row with fellow contestant Denise Welch, the mother-of-two still managed to win the hearts of CBB fans.

A source exclusively told The Sun Online: “Nicola is going back into the CBB house. She’s had the worst two years of her life but now she’s feeling strong and she is desperate to let her hair down and have some fun in there…”

Bianca Gascoigne

The TV personality and former stepdaughter of Paul Gascoigne. The 30-year-old is no stranger to reality TV having made appearances on Love Island and also auditioning for the X factor.

A source told Mail Online:

“Not only is Bianca great value on her own she’s also related to one of Britain’s most famous and talked-about football stars.”

Tiffany Pollard

American reality TV personality Tiffany featured in CBB last year. She became a social media sensation after confusing the news of the death of David Bowie with the death of fellow housemate David Guest. He has since passed away.

Many CBB viewers also shared their upset that hilarious Tiffany didn’t walk away with the CBB title. It went instead to Ex-on-the Beach charmer Stephen Bear.

Lauren Goodger


Former TOWIE star Lauren has hit the headlines in recent years for her dramatic weight loss. She confirmed she is in talks to return to CBB in 2017, having made her first appearance in 2014.

On the show she enjoyed a brief romance with former Geordie Shore star Ricci Guarnaccio. The pair exited the house in a double eviction to be met with a mixture of boos and cheers from the awaiting crowd.

Asked whether she would enter the house for a second stint, she told OK! online: “Yeah, I did have a little chat but I don’t know.”

Model Jasmine definitely made her mark on CBB back in 2014. As well as flashing her boobs for the world to see, the 34-year-old was involved in a heated love triangle with singer Lee Ryan and glamour model Casey Batchelor!

A trailer for the show has already been posted on Big Brother UK Twitter, confirming show favourites Emma Willis and Rylan Clark-Neal as co-hosts.
