Well, it’s been about five minutes since the official line-up for this year’s ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here’ was confirmed, and that can only mean one thing… time for the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ rumours to begin.

Channel 5 bosses are already looking for recruits to enter the ‘CBB’ house in January, and have reportedly got their eye on former ‘Emmerdale' actress Patsy Kensit.

According to a new report in The Sun, producers of the reality series - which is thought to be returning for an extended five-week stint in 2015 - are willing to make Patsy a "huge offer" to get her in the house.

A source told the newspaper: “The ‘CBB’ producers are convinced Patsy will make great TV and are desperate to secure her.”

The news of Patsy’s potential entrance into the most infamous house in Britain comes just days after it was claimed that Katie Hopkins, who has previously appeared in ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘I’m A Celebrity’, had been offered a record fee of £400,000 to join next series.

The Mirror have previously said that American reality star Austin Armacost, who used to date fashion designer Marc Jacobs, had also met with Channel 5 producers about joining the new series of ‘CBB’, while 'X Factor' singer Chloe Jasmine recently revealed that she had turned down an offer to be in the house.

However, fans of the reality show might want to enjoy it while they can, after it was suggested last month that Channel 5 might be about to pull the plug on ‘Big Brother’ altogether, four years after the franchise was transferred from Channel 4.
