We take a look at some of the increasing speculation. But the questions is… which rumours will prove to be true?
A fresh rumour we’ve seen is that bosses are approaching Girls Aloud’s Sarah Harding for a possible stint in the house. According to The Daily Star, producers have told her to ‘name the price’ thinking that her good looks and love for partying will draw viewers. A source told the paper: “Sarah’s our dream girl. We’re working on a mix of stars for the show, but she’s the one we have set our hearts on. She could name her price.” In the past she’s been romantically linked to Calum Best and Stephen Dorff. She recently became the face of Ultimo lingerie.
If Sarah was this years good looks, then Tommy Sheridan would be this years political contestant. Jeffry Archer has been rumoured for the show, as has Boris Johnson, although he has since ruled himself out. Sheridan is different, refusing to totally deny his appearance in a radio interview. When asked by DJ if he would appear, he said: “Erm, probably not. Not because I think I’m above it - I was one of the few defenders of George Galloway when he did it last year. All I’d say is, you can’t believe everything you read about Tommy Sheridan.”
Other people rumoured to appear include former Hi-De-Hi star Su Pollard and more Most Haunted presenter Derek Acorah. He’s been rumoured to appear for a number of series now, but this could be the time he finally joins the house.
The next person to be rumoured to appear is John Leslie. The presenter was found innocent of rape charges, but has since struggled to find work. An appearence in the house could turn his fortunes around, although Michael Barrymore hasn’t found much work since he joined the house last year. Other celebrities rumoured to appear include US singer Grace Jones and drag star RuPaul.
Duncan James has been ruled out. He will be appearing in ITV1’s Dancing On Ice.
