Celebrity Big Brother 2012: Are these the housemates?

A whole new collection of stars and tabloid-favourites enter the Celebrity Big Brother house tomorrow night.

As usual, there's been lots of speculation about this year's housemates, with one particular star seen arriving at a London hotel ahead of tomorrow’s launch wearing a balaclava and sunglasses.

Thought to be Cheryl Fergison - a former EastEnders actress whose character Heather Trott was killed off in March this year - it's long been rumoured that she's joining the Channel 5 show.

Another soap star set to enter the house is Julie Goodyear, also known as Coronation Street’s beloved landlady Bet Lynch, famed for her penchant for leopard print.

TOWIE star Lauren Goodger’s on-set problems with producers are well known and it’s believed that she’s hoping to join CBB to launch her TV career away from the reality show that first shot her to fame.

Dropping a few hints as to her change of reality TV programme, The Mirror report Lauren as saying: “I don't know what I can and cannot say but at the minute I'm still in TOWIE.”

MC Harvey, who found fame as a member of So Solid Crew but is now better known for cheating on his former wife Alesha Dixon with Javine, is another reported addition to the show.

Loose Women’s Denise Welch won January's series of the programme, and now it looks like her co-star and mum-of-three Coleen Nolan mightbe giving it a shot too.

A comic addition looks likely in the form of Julian Clary and the blunt funnyman will no doubt provide hilarious commentary from within the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Although Dog the Bounty Hunter was rumoured to be joining the show, The Guardian have since reported that the US TV presenter's appearance is in doubt after he was refused a visa due to a murder conviction from 1976.

Daily Mail journalist Samantha Brick, who wrote an infamous article about women hating her because of her beauty, looks set to be a controversial addition to the house.

She looks likely to be joined by Sex, Lies And Rinsing Guys star Danica Thrall, who readily admits to making her living by asking men for cash in exchange for flirty texts and tweets.

Celebrity Big Brother wouldn’t be complete without a few ‘kiss and tell’ stars, and this year CBB bosses have enlisted Rhian Sugden - the 25-year-old topless model who Vernon Kay famously admitted to sexting - and Jasmine Lennard, who had a brief affair with Simon Cowell.

Although all of the above names haven’t been officially confirmed, but it’s thought that they will most likely be the 12 housemates entering the house tomorrow.

There are also whispers that there’s one notable star who has managed to stay entirely out of the press and will be a huge surprise.

A source said: "This is the one name no one has got - the biggest star of the show".

The star is apparently going American and male - who do you think it'll be?
