However, presenter Emma Willis has assured ‘CBB’ fans that this won’t be the case this year, praising the “stellar” line-up who are heading into the house this January.
Speaking ahead of next month’s launch, Emma said: “I normally stay very blind to it all right up until the last minute but this year I've actually seen part of a list very early.
“You won't not recognise anybody if it stays like this. This year seems like a proper stellar cast and that's always great to watch.
“This is going to be one of the best ever series of the show. I have such high hopes for the series - that's how good I think it's going to be.”
It has already been revealed that this January’s series of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ will take on a “twisted fairytale” theme, with the house getting a dramatic makeover straight from a children’s book.
Earlier this week it was claimed that Keith Chegwin had been approached to take part in the new series, to bring a bit of “fun” to an otherwise pretty serious line-up, which is rumoured to include Katie Hopkins and Danniella Westbrook.
