'Celebrity Big Brother' 2016 Line-Up: Former 'X Factor' Singer Chloe Mafia For New Series?

'She can be absolutely outrageous and won't hold back in any way. She speaks her mind and will not take abuse from anyone.'

Former ‘X Factor’ hopeful Chloe Mafia, who now goes by the name Chloe Khan, has been linked with a place in the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house this summer.

You might recall Chloe for her brief - but memorable - stint on the show back in 2010, where she was sent home from Bootcamp after turning up to the show late, and hungover.

Chloe was also forced to deny rumours that time that she had been earning money as a sex worker.

In the six years since she appeared on the show, Chloe has turned things around for herself, and made the move to Los Angeles, where she's earned more than £1, thanks to her webcam business and glamour modelling in magazines including Playboy.

Now, it has been claimed that she’s adding to her fortune by landing a spot in the ‘CBB’ house.

An insider tells The Sun: “They know she can be absolutely outrageous and won't hold back in any way. She speaks her mind and will not take abuse from anyone.

“She is going to be an explosive housemate and will make for amazing viewing.”

Before all that, though, there’s the small matter of regular ‘Big Brother’, which kicks off for a brand new series at the beginning of July, with a new teaser for the show claiming “the game is changing” for the upcoming crop of housemates.
