'Celebrity Big Brother': Paul Daniels And Debbie McGee To Bring 'Magic' To The 'CBB' House?

With just days to go until the brand new series of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ kicks off, there are still a few last minute rumours about which famous faces will be taking part flying around… and it’s now claimed that Paul Daniels and his wife, Debbie McGee, will be entering the house on Monday night.

It’s been reported that Paul and Debbie - who have been married for 26 years - made the last minute decision to join the line-up as a couple after talks with ‘BB’ producers.

A source told The Sun: “They’re very excited to be going in together - they’d never have considered doing it separately.

“Paul and Debbie are perfect for Big Brother. They’re great fun, big personalities and don’t take themselves too seriously.

“Paul’s hoping to show off his magic skills in the tasks and win some younger fans.”

Nowadays, Paul is probably as well known for his stints on reality TV as he is for his work as a magician, having appeared on Channel 5’s ‘The Farm’, as well as enjoying a less-than-magic stint on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ in 2010.

He also appeared on ‘The X Factor: Battle of the Stars’, again with Debbie, where their performance of ‘Let Me Entertain You’ made them the first act to be eliminated from the competition.

‘Celebrity Big Brother’ is due to kick off this Monday, 18 August on Channel 5, with a whole host of celebrities rumoured to be taking part, including Kelly Brook’s muscleman fiancé David McIntosh, ‘Benefits Street’ resident White Dee and former ‘TOWIEcast member Lauren Goodger.
