’Celebrity Big Brother’ bosses have reportedly been forced to sign up a last minute contestant, after one of their ‘New Stars’ pulled out at the 11th hour.
The Daily Star has claimed he was signed up after a mystery name changed their mind about appearing on the Channel 5 reality show, which will see a bunch of ‘CBB’ legends living alongside some famous newcomers.
Sam even seemed to hint at his appearance on Twitter, when he posted on 22 December: “Well that was an interesting meeting,” alongside a house emoji.
He made headlines recently when he became the victim of a sex tape leak, which saw an explicit Skype video of him posted online.
Sam appeared on the tenth series of ‘The X Factor’ in 2013, reaching the live shows as part of Louis Walsh’s Boys category.
He was eliminated in week six of the competition, and went on to have a relationship with fellow contestant Tamera Foster after they left the show.
‘Celebrity Big Brother’ launches on Tuesday 3 January at 9pm on Channel 5.
