UK’s Celebrity Big Brother 2017 is here again, and a full list of participants has been leaked to calm your nerves until 1 August.
Although the Big Brother series was criticized for making changes to its original format in recent broadcasts — a reason for an all-time low ratings — every addicted viewer is sure going to have a memorable month.
There will be a total of 16 housemates in the line-up, according to a leak from The Sun.
Rumors were rife that this year’s competition will be an all-star series featuring previous winners, but those speculations have been squashed although there’s still quality in the selection.
This isn’t the first time we’ve had celebs pull out at the last minute — whatever reasons they offered for playing with our minds don’t matter, anyways.
Top of the list for Celebrity Big Brother 2017 is Sarah Harding, who got several offers to play a part following her alleged romance with Danny Dyer.
An insider told The Sun: “Sarah is fully on board, but she doesn’t feel the courage within her.
“She loves her privacy so much, and has enjoyed a wonderful career out of the spotlight. Sarah just doesn’t want to give up her low-key presence for now.”
Meanwhile, Girls Aloud star Cheryl, who played roles with Sarah as band mates, told Closer Magazine that she feels insecure about what secrets her friend might reveal in the house.
“Cheryl isn’t very happy at the prospect of Sarah going on CBB,” a tipster told the news outlet. “She’s worried that Sarah can be a bit unpredictable at times and is concerned about what she might say about her.”
On Tuesday, Jemma Lucy and Sam Thompson (both Made In Chelsea stars) are expected to join ex-EastEnders star Shaun Williamson and Jordan Davies, an ex-lover to Megan McKenna, in Channel 5′s house.
Shaun played the role of Barry Evans on EastEnders for ten years, between 1994 to 2004.
Derek Acorah, popular for his role on Most Haunted, will also feature in the house competitions.
Helen Lederer and Sandi Bogle of Gogglebox were also among the favorites.
Among the first-timers are Trisha Paytas, a YouTube personality-cum-singer, and Paul Danan, who played a role in Love Islands (2005).
Rosanna Davison, who was crowned Miss World in 2003, and Amelia Lily, a former X-Factor contestant will also get to compete against Celebrity Big Brother veterans from The Real Housewives, Dawn Ward and Brandi Glanville, who recently persuaded her husband to pay a whooping £8000 so she could have a designer vagina surgery.
Chad Johnson (The Bachelorette) and Marissa Jade are among the big names, too.

The atmosphere will be very tensed as viewers are expected to make a choice between Love Islands and CBB — not even with Jemma Lucy promising explosive sex sessions with both boys and girls. The beauty says she loves it with both sexes.
“I’m very open about being bisexual,” Lucy said.
Oops! Paris Hilton was included,” too.
