Celebrity Big Brother line-up revealed

The 'Celebrity Big Brother' line-up has been revealed, ahead of Tuesday's (05.01.15) launch show.

Former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Gemma Collins, 'Strictly Come Dancing' beauty Kristina Rihanoff and ex 'EastEnders' actress Danniella Westbrook are among the stars who are set to enter the 'CBB' house, according to the Daily Star Sunday.

Danniella's inclusion comes as a surprise as the star - who has battled cocaine addiction in the past - reportedly lost out on a place in the show last year after failing the psychological evaluations.

The will be joined by a mixture of well-known and less recognisable names including former lothario Darren Day, whose conquests include Isla Fisher, Anna Friel and Tracy Shaw.

Famous exes lined up to take part in the programme include Sven-Goran Eriksson's former love Nancy Dell'Olio and David Bowie's ex-wife Angie.

Controversial 'X Factor' finalist Christopher Maloney, music producer David Gest, Kim Kardashian's best friend Jonathan Cheban, ex 'Hollyoaks' actress Stephanie Davis and former 'EastEnders' actor John Partridge have all been added to the line-up.

Christopher was reportedly drafted in to replace Prince Andrew's ex-girlfriend Koo Stark, who made a shock departure just days before the launch.

Contestants who may be less familiar to viewers include Megan McKenna, who previously starred in the US show 'Ex On The Beach', 'Geordie Shore's Scotty T, former Mr Ireland Jeremy McConnell, reality TV star Tiffany Pollard and Winston McKenzie, a onetime Ukip spokesman, who is now the English Democrats' candidate for London mayor.
