Kim Kardashian West confirms Jonathan Cheban is joining Celebrity Big Brother
Kim Kardashian West has confirmed her friend Jonathan Cheban is set to take part in 'Celebrity Big Brother.'
The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star, 34, can't wait to see what the PR guru will get up to in the infamous house when the Channel 5 show hits screens tomorrow night (05.01.16) as she thinks he'll be absolutely "hysterical."
Taking to her Twitter account last night (03.01.15), the beauty wrote in a, since deleted, tweet: "OMGGGG I can't believe @JonathanCheban is doing celeb Big Brother UK. I'm dying to see this! He's going to be hysterical!!!! (sic)."
Kim's tweet of support for her best pal, 41, comes after rumours began to swirl suggesting she and her mother Kris Jenner, 60, had tried to persuade Jonathan not to join the programme out of fear he'd expose their family secrets.
A source said recently: "Kim and her mum took Jonathan to one side and had a heartfelt chat, promising to make him a bigger character on their [E!] show with more prominent storylines ...
"They're worried about how he'll be portrayed and how interactions with gobby British housemates will go down."
Meanwhile, Jonathan will be sharing the crazy house with dancing beauty Kristina Rihanoff, former 'The Only Way Is Essex' loudmouth Gemma Collins and actress Danniella Westbrook after they were confirmed over the weekend.
Controversial 'X Factor' finalist Christopher Maloney, David Gest, ex 'Hollyoaks' actress Stephanie Davis and former 'EastEnders' actor John Partridge are also set to take part.
