The son of late footballer George Best hinted he’s headed for CBB in a recent interview. He told the Daily Star: : “I’ve got a lot of time for Celebrity Big Brother, it has done a lot for me…

The Blue singer entered the house in 2014.
It was certainly an entraining series, and he featured alongside Dappy, Casey Batchelor, Jasmine Waltz and more in the serious.
After being caught in a love triangle with Casey and Jasmine, it’s no surprise bosses are reportedly keen to get Lee back in the house for entertainment value.

Married pair Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt joined Claire Richards and Ryan Moloney in the house for the 11th series, and came out second place in the competition after This Morning presenter Rylan Clark.
And now it’s rumoured the US-based couple will return for the All Star series of Celebrity Big Brother.
Reality TV star king Stephen Bear is rumoured to be returning to the Big Brother house.
He won the summer 2016 edition of the show, so it’s only right he re-enters the house for the star studded line-up.
Considering Stephen, who first found fame on Shipwrecked, took part in Ex on the Beach in 2015 and again in 2016, we can’t see the 26-year-old having a problem with tackling the Channel 5 show again.
