What is the official Celebrity Big Brother 2018 summer line-up?
Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves – OUT
The Sun exclusively revealed that the Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves signed up for Celebrity Big Brother so that people “see the real him”.
The cosmetic surgery addict was given the nickname “The Human Ken Doll” after spending more than £508,000 on around 160 procedures.
He was ejected from the CBB house shortly after Natalie was given the boot.
He told The Sun Online he had demanded to leave and said: “I’m no longer interested in the show or anything to do with it. Simply because it wasn’t for me.”
However, CBB bosses insist the Human Ken Doll was kicked out for “serious inappropriate behaviour”.
The Sun exclusively revealed ex-Corrie star Ryan Thomas will be on Celebrity Big Brother in August, 2018.
He will follow in the footsteps of his brothers who both made the switch to reality TV, with Adam and Scott both appearing on I’m A Celebrity and Love Island respectively.
The 34-year-old, who played Jason Grimshaw, quit the ITV soap two years ago and was offered big money to go on CBB.
Gabby Allen starred in Love Island 2017 and is set to make Celebrity Big Brother her next reality show appearance.
In April 2018 she sensationally split from her boyfriend and fellow Love Island star Marcel Sommerville when she found out he’d cheated on her.
A source told The Sun Online: “She really thought he was the one and has been left heartbroken by what he did.”
“Doing something like Celebrity Big Brother was never on her radar, but after their break up she wanted to do something challenging to help push her out of her comfort zone.”
New dad Dan Osborne has signed up for Celeb Big Brother to join Gabby after being forced to deny they had had an affair.
The Sun Online can exclusively reveal the former Towie star, 26, is going to lead the line-up along with the ex Love Islander.
The reality TV star, who also works as a tattoo artist, will find himself sharing the CBB house with a familiar face – Gabby, 25 – weeks after they were at the centre of affair allegations.
Dan, who recent welcomed his second child with wife Jacqueline, was accused of sleeping with the Love Island star by her ex Marcel Somerville.
Both Dan and Gabby, who spent time together at The Holistic Bootcamp in Marbella, have both strenuously denied the claims.
The Sun Online revealed Hollywood star and Scientologist Kirstie Alley has signed up for Celebrity Big Brother.
The 67-year-old – famous for her roles in Star Trek and Cheers – will enter the house on August 17 when the next series starts.
A source told The Sun Online: “Kirstie is the biggest name to sign on the dotted line so far for this year’s show.
“She’s a Hollywood legend and has plenty of juicy stories to tell.
With the theme of retribution and stars talking about their own publicity storms – Kirstie couldn’t be better suited.”
Ben Jardine – OUT
Ben Jardine was evicted in the third nomination process.
The Sun first revealed that Married At First Sight Ben Jardine had signed up to CBB.
The change of scene will be a welcome break for the millionaire property tycoon, as he and his wife Stephanie began divorce proceedings.
A source told The Sun Online: “Ben has had a year from hell so is thrilled to be going on Celebrity Big Brother.
“It means he can finally put the past behind him and move on.”
Chloe Ayling – OUT
Chloe Ayling was kidnapped, drugged, and stuffed in a bag but The Sun exclusively revealed the former model is planning on using her newfound fame to her advantage by signing up for CBB.
A TV source told The Sun: “Chloe has previously said that she wouldn’t do reality TV, but she is in talks to do the next series of Celebrity Big Brother.
“The premise of the series is retribution and people who have been wronged, so she definitely fits the bill from that perspective.
“On top of that, she is obviously incredibly glamorous, so producers are really keen to get her on board.
Natalie Nunn – OUT
Natalie Nunn was announced as a Celebrity Big Brother housemate less than a week before it was due to air.
The 33-year-old was booted off the fourth series of Bad Girls Club after a violent scrap with cast members but was so popular she brought back for two more seasons.
The American reality TV personality has been married to football player Jacob Payne since getting hitched on TV in 2012.
They share a daughter, Journey Ruth Payne, after Natalie suffered a miscarriage three years ago.
Her latest television appearances include Marriage Boot Camp, Where Are They Now? and Mother/Daughter Experiment.
Natalie was the first of the celebs to be evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Roxanne Pallett – OUT
The ex-Emmerdale star, 35 headed to the Celebrity Big Brother house after signing a £75,000 contract.
However, she landed in controversy after claiming that fellow housemate Ryan Thomas punched her – leading to her decision to leave the house and a host of complaints to Ofcom from viewers.
Roxanne is best known for playing Jo Stiles in Emmerdale, but she has a successful career on stage as well as on screen.
The actress has also appeared on Waterloo Road, playing 17-year-old pupil Shelby Dixon and was on season 4 of Dancing On Ice.
Telly psychic Sally Morgan is in the Celebrity Big Brother house.
The Sun Online exclusively revealed back in July 2018 that the professional medium, known to fans as Psychic Sally, would be among the line-up this year.
Sally claims to have had her first psychic experience at just nine months old.
TV’s best-loved psychic also insists she saw her first ghost when she was four.
Jermaine Pennant – OUT
Former footballer Jermaine was one of the final celebrities to be revealed for this year’s CBB.
The Sun revealed how Jermaine had gone into hiding EARLY ahead of Celebrity Big Brother because old football mates have been hounding him as they are convinced he’ll blow their secrets on the show.
It comes after the former Liverpool and Arsenal midfielder has lifted the lid on what really went on off the pitch in his bombshell best-seller new book.
Pennant was booted out the Celebrity Big Brother house on September 4.
Hardeep Singh Kholi – OUT
Hardeep Singh Kohli was the BBC’s rising star whose career came crashing down amidst allegations of sexual harassment.
The Sikh comedian has found it tough to find TV work since but he’s found a shot of redemption on Celebrity Big Brother.
In 2004, he starred in Channel 4’s Meet the Magoons and he reached the final of Celebrity MasterChef in 2006, which soon led to presenting New British Kitchen with John Torode.
Other TV appearances include a celebrity edition of The Apprentice, The Wright Stuff, and he also hosted CBBC game show Get 100.
Hardeep was kicked out of the CBB house on Friday, September 7.
