Rylan Clark's 'dream contestant' signed up for Celebrity Big Brother

Rylan Clark's "dream American contestant" has been signed up for 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

The 'Big Brother's Bit On The Side' host and former 'CBB' winner has revealed the contestant he'd most like to see on the show is set to enter the house next week for the UK vs. USA-themed series.

He said: "My dream American contestant is going in! I can't tell you who but they have always been on my dream list."

Emma Willis - who presents the main show - admitted she'd love to see 'This Morning' presenter Eamonn Holmes and US chat show host Ellen DeGeneres compete against each other in the upcoming series.

She said: "For the UK it would be Eamonn Holmes, and for the US it would be Ellen DeGeneres. The two of them would be amazing! Eamonn I know is a lovely person and Ellen seems like a lovely woman, she is bright, fun and entertaining. It would be the best debate in the world!"

The brunette beauty also thinks the theme is perfect after viewers complained about the number of American housemates who took part in the last series.

She added: "There was such a hoo haa about how many Americans were in the last series, that it's both ironic and amusing that this series ended up being UK vs. USA! I think it will be competitive but I am intrigued as to whether the housemates will play that game and try to get the opposition on side. I love to see if people play the game with each other."

'Celebrity Big Brother: Live Launch' airs Thursday August 27 at 9pm on Channel 5.
