It made a huge star of reality TV programme Amy Childs last year, when she appeared in the show, and rumours are that her fellow co star Lauren Goodger may be entering the house this time around. TOWIE’s Goodger is remaining quiet however, but doing nothing to dispel the gossip, as she told OK magazine, “I don’t know what I can and can not say but at the minute I’m still in TOWIE.” Amy Childs went onto to launch several clothing collections including a swimwear range and a lingerie collection whilst Kirk Norcross, who also appeared on last years Celebrity Big Brother, went on to date Jodie Marsh. The relationship has now ended. Goodger may have been setting her sights a little high as she named Magic Mike star Channing Tatum to be her ideal housemate. She would not confirm or deny whether she was going in herself, saying, “I’ve been in TOWIE since day one and I think when it’s right it’s right I’m going to make my decision to what I’m going to do obviously I’m going to plan ahead but we’ll have to wait and see.”
Other stars rumoured to be entering the house are Martin Kemp, ex member of Spandau Ballet,, Coleen Nolan from the singing group and more recently a presenter of Loose Women and This Morning, MC Harvey (is he a singer of sorts? I kow he dumped Alesha for Javine!), Danica Thrall (a reality TV star), Julian Clary, our favourite gay comedian and Julie Goodyear, she of Coronation Street fame. It will be interesting to see, if controversial journalist Samantha Brick does enter the house, just how many men actually do chat her up, as she complained bitterly about this in her article, her being so very good looking and all. Because I suspect if there are a couple of models in the house with her, she might not get the attention she so richly is used to. Oh well, it will be a pleasant break for her then. She could write an article on it! Title – My Pleasant Surprise at Being Ignored!
There are always a couple of models going into the house and this year is no exception, but we have a firecracker for this series in Rhian Sudgen, who is the 25-year-old topless model that Vernon Kay famously admitted sex-texting. If she does enter the house, I expect once everyone finds out who she is, they’ll be asking her the kind of questions the world wants to know, like, is Vernon on PAYG or a contract? Rhian was talking about going on Celebrity Big Brother last week and said, “I’ve heard Coleen has an issue with Page 3 Girls. Julian wears good make up, doesn’t he? He could do mine. And I got nasty messages off (Jasmine Lennard, also rumoured to go in). We were speaking to (Cristiano Ronaldo) at the same time. Slightly awkward.” Speaking of Jasmine Lennard, as Nikky Graham would say – who is she? Actaully she is Simon Cowell’s ex squeeze, but whether she will be good telly is anyone’s guess as she has probably signed an agreement with the high waisted trousered one that says the first rule about their relationship is that she can’t talk about their relationship, the second rule.. you get the picture. She might get into fisticuffs with Rhian of course, but I reckon they’ll probably eye each other up across the sofas and have a meaningless cuddle. Boring!
One person we can definitely state with confidence to be entering the house is Eastenders actress Cheryl Fergison, who was seen poorly disguised with a balaclava on her head, wearing baggy white trousers and a loose fitting patterned vest top. She was also carrying a Co-op plastic bag, thought to contain her make-up. The 48 year old actress was spotted getting out of a car at a secret London hotel. Fergison played Heather Trott in Eastenders, before her character was killed off earlier this year by Ben Mitchell.
Celebrity Big Brother returns on 15 August at 9pm on Channel 5.
