Bianca Gascoigne for Celebrity Big Brother

Bianca Gascoigne is to star in 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

The TV personality will appear in the forthcoming 'Gold Stars vs All Stars' series of the reality TV show and show bosses are hoping she will speak about her football legend step-father Paul Gascoigne's alcohol battle.

A source said: "Not only is Bianca great value on her own she's also related to one of Britain's most famous and talked-about football stars."

As well as having her former England star step-dad to chat about, producers expect the brunette stunner to be a "feisty" addition to the series, which will see former 'CBB' stars appear alongside new housemates.

An insider said: "Producers think Bianca will be a big hit with viewers.

"She's a gorgeous girl who isn't afraid of flashing the flesh. She's also feisty and willing to speak her mind and stick up for herself. Bianca can be sweet, but she's not a walkover."

Bianca - who won 'Love Island' in 2006 and a celebrity version of 'Gladiators' in 2008 - is expected to rub shoulders with the likes of Stephen Bear, who won the last 'CBB' series.

The insider added to the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "Fans can expect fireworks. The plan is to bring back some of the show's most controversial characters.

"The new housemates won't have long to find their feet because it will be dog-eat-dog."

Other stars linked with a return to the new series of 'Celebrity Big Brother' include controversial model Angélique 'Frenchy' Morgan, outspoken model Jasmine Lennard and former 'Strictly Come Dancing' professional James Jordan.

What's more, reality TV couple Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag - who were runners-up of 'CBB' in 2013 to Rylan Clark - are said to have signed a big-money deal to return to the programme.

A source previously said: "Spencer and Heidi are very competitive and they got so close to winning last time that they're hell bent on coming out on top this time around."
