The new series of Celebrity Big Brother is said to be an All-Star v New Star series, rumoured to be bringing back some of the best (and most controversial, obvs) names from CBB‘s past, mixed in with the public version of the show.

With a new show on the horizon, the rumour mill has been in overdrive about who might be making their way through those famous front doors.

One of the firm favourites appears to be Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, who first made their Big Brother debut back in 2013. And, according to Emma Willis, their return could only be a good thing.

‘There’s lots of chat about Speidi going back in – and if they did they were so brilliant the first time as being that sort of panto villain where you didn’t really know if it was real or not real,’ she told The Sun

‘They kind of kept us all guessing and even after they left you didn’t know what they’d just done, or whether it was true, or just for the show,’ Emma added.

One thing’s for sure; if the former The Hills couple do make an appearance – and there are reports that they’ve been spotted in England ahead of tonight’s opening show – there’s bound to be fireworks.


What’s more, the controversial pair reportedly fell out with BBBOTS host Rylan Clark during their 2013 stint. And the presenter is also rumoured to be up for a brief stint as a guest housemate during the new All Star series. Err, sounds pretty great to us.

When picking out her favourites from the shows, Emma actually named both Rylan and Speidi, as well as Blue‘s Lee Ryan.

Strictly Come Dancing‘s James Jordan, Bianca Gascoigne and her former flame Calum Best are also all rumoured to be making a comeback.

We’ll meet you on the sofa at 9pm.
