Celebrity Big Brother is set to return to our TV screens in March and already a number of big names have been rumoured to be taking part in the new ITV series.

Big Brother returned to UK television screens in 2023 for the first time in nearly six years with Jordan Sangha winning the series.

The iconic reality show first aired on Channel 4 in 2000 where it stayed for 10 years before moving over to Channel 5 from 2011 to 2018.

In 2018 Big Brother was axed but was rebooted on ITV with new hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best in 2023.

Following the successful return of Big Brother it was also confirmed late last year that the celebrity version of the show would be returning in 2024 with Odudu and Best hosting once again.

Previous contestants on Celebrity Big Brother include Rylan Clark (TV and radio presenter), Josie Gibson (I'm a Celeb and This Morning), Charlotte Crosby (Geordie Shore), Denise Welch (Loose Women) and Ryan Thomas (former Coronation Street actor).

But which celebrities will be entering the Big Brother house in 2024?

Rumoured line-up for Celebrity Big Brother 2024

While no official Celebrity Big Brother line-up has been revealed by ITV, these are the big names that are rumoured to be taking part in the new series.

Phillip Schofield

Phillip Schofield stepped down from his role as This Morning co-host after more than 20 years in May 2023 following an alleged off-air rift with fellow presenter Holly Willoughby. 

Just a week later he left ITV completely after it was revealed he'd had an affair with a younger male colleague.

Schofield returned to television screens shortly after the scandal doing an interview with the BBC but he has not been seen since. 

But there are reports he has been approached to take part in Celebrity Big Brother 2024, according to The Sun.

A source, speaking to The Sun, said: "Celebrity Big Brother is coming back and ITV want massive names to kick it off.

"CBB is the perfect place for stars who are riding off the wave of a scandal, or something big happening in their lives.

"Phillip Schofield is someone they’re going to approach."

Bobby Brazier

Bobby Brazier has become a household name over the past 12 months. 

He first rose to fame as Freddie Slater on BBC soap EastEnders before taking part in the 2023 edition of Strictly Come Dancing (with partner Dianne Buswell).

He and Buswell have also been a part of the Strictly Come Dancing Live UK Tour.

But now it appears he could be set for a return to TV with Celebrity Big Brother.

He and his brother Freddie are said to be among those considering taking part in the new series, according to the Mail Online.

Katie Price

Media personality and model Katie Price has already appeared on Celebrity Big Brother winning the 2015 series.

She now looks set for a return to the Big Brother house in 2024 after sharing a cryptic post on Instagram recently.

Price, 45, reposted a short clip from ITV to her story which featured the iconic Big Brother theme tune and said: "Celebrities... Big Brother is coming to get you", The Mirror reported.

She shared the reel and posted a pair of eyes emoji sparking rumours of her return to Celebrity Big Brother.

Ekin-Su Colculoglu

Ekin-Su Colculiglu took part in the 2022 series of one of ITV's other reality shows - Love Island.

She won the series - which also featured the likes of Gemma Owen and Tasha Gouri - with then partner Davide Sanclimenti.

It appears both Davide and Ekin-Su wanted to be on Celebrity Big Brother 2024.

But according to reports in The Sun the pair have recently split and it seems Ekin-Su was the one to land a role on the ITV reality show.

She also recently appeared on the US version of The Traitors.
