Amelia appeared on the 2011 series of ‘The X Factor’, where she was mentored by Kelly Rowland.
She was axed by the judge in the first week of live shows in a twist, but later returned to the competition when Frankie Cocozza was thrown off for taking cocaine.
She ended up finishing in third place, behind Marcus Collins and eventual winners Little Mix.
After the show, Amelia went on to launch a pop career, with her debut single ‘You Bring Me Joy’ reaching number two in the charts.
Her second single failed to replicate the success of the first, and plans for an album were dropped, but Amelia has since gone on to launch a successful career in the West End.
Meanwhile, other stars rumoured to be appearing in ‘CBB’ this summer include ‘Ex On The Beach’ star Jordan Davies, TV personality John Leslie, reality star Caitlyn Jenner, ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ star Helen Lederer and former ‘Goggleboxer’ Sandi Bogle.
Sinitta has also revealed she has been approached to appear on the show, but set out a ridiculous set of demands before she’d agree to sign up.
‘Celebrity Big Brother’ returns to Channel 5 this summer.
