Rumour has it that we're set to see a very familiar face when Celebrity Big Brother returns this week.
According to the Mirror, our very own Ricci Guarnaccio is rumoured to be among the celebrities entering the famous house in 2014.
If the gossip on the grapevine is true, Ex On The Beach star Ricci will clearly be hoping to recreate the success of his former Geordie Shore housemate Charlotte Crosby, who won the competition last year.
He'll have some heavyweight celebs to contend with, though, as the likes of Strictly star James Jordan, actress Claire King, Kelly Brook’s fiancé David McIntosh, ex-TOWIE star Lauren Goodger, retired boxer Audley Harrison and White Dee off of Benefits Street are among the rumoured contestants along with professional tough cookie Kellie Maloney - better known as Frank Maloney, Lennox Lewis' former manager.
A source told the tabloid: “Kellie was top of the list – she was the one that everyone working on the show wanted.
"They all think she will make Celebrity Big Brother a must-watch.
“Having her signature is being seen as a huge victory for Channel 5 bosses, she is part of what they see as a brilliant line up.”
Made In Chelsea's Stephanie Pratt, former B*Witched singer Edele Lynch and Gogglebox’s George Gilbey are also apparently on Channel 5's list.
“This is one of the best line ups we’ve seen in years now Kellie is on board," added the source. “It will be compulsive viewing for sure.”
We'll find out if the rumours are true tonight, when the new series of Celebrity Big Brother kicks off on Channel 5 with a live launch show at 9pm.
In the meantime, look back at the ruckus Ricci caused the last time he appeared on a TV show...
