The axed ‘Hollyoaks’ actress, whose dramatic departure from the soap made headlines earlier this year, had originally been signed up to appear on the new series of ‘I’m A Celebrity’, but had to pull out at the eleventh hour, for health reasons.

However, it has now been claimed that fans won’t have to wait too long to see her on screen again, as she’s been slated to appear in the forthcoming series of ‘CBB’, when it returns to screens in January.

An insider tells the Daily Star: “Steph is gorgeous and will make great telly. The jungle’s loss is our gain.”

Stephanie admitted she was “absolutely gutted” when medics advised her not to take part in the show due to a severe nut allergy, writing at the time: “It would have been a brilliant experience… don’t worry, though, [there’s] amazing stuff coming up for me so keep your eyes peeled!”

Other stars tipped to be taking part in the new series include pro wrestler Hulk Hogan, former ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ pro Ola Jordan and David Bowie’s ex-wife, Angie Bowie.

The latest name added to the list of rumoured housemates is Prince Andrew’s former flame, Koo Stark, with a show source telling The Sun: “She has traditionally been very discreet, but if she decides to open up, she will have some amazing stories to tell.”

Emma Willis will be back to front the new series of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, which will air in January on Channel 5.
