'Celebrity Big Brother': Bianca Gascoigne For 'Gold Stars vs. New Stars' Series?

'Bianca can be sweet, but she’s not a walkover.'

‘Celebrity Big Brother’ bosses have reportedly bagged Paul Gascoigne’s daughter, Bianca Gascoigne, for the line-up of the next series.

According to the MailOnline, producers are hoping that Bianca will lift the lid on life with her famous footballer father, when the ‘CBB’ house opens its doors to a new crop of celebrities in January.

A source says: “Not only is Bianca great value on her own she’s also related to one of Britain’s most famous and talked-about football stars.

“Producers think Bianca will be a big hit with viewers. She’s a gorgeous girl who isn’t afraid of flashing the flesh. She’s also feisty and willing to speak her mind and stick up for herself. Bianca can be sweet, but she’s not a walkover.”

While she’s arguably best known as Gazza’s daughter, Bianca has also branched out on her own several times, beginning in 2006, when she won the second series of ‘Love Island’, alongside ‘CBB’ finalist Calum Best.

Since then, she has worked as a model, as well as appearing in an episode of ‘The X Factor’ in 2012, though she didn’t make it past the initial auditions round.

Although the line-up for the new series of ‘CBB’ is being kept under wraps, it’s thought that fewer new celebrities than usual will be taking part.

This is because the show will reportedly take on a ‘Gold Stars vs. New Stars’ theme, in which newcomers will be pitted against notable former contestants.

Among the names tipped to be returning are trouble-making showbiz journalist Perez Hilton, notorious reality TV duo Speidi and controversial ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ pro James Jordan.

‘CBB’ returns in January on Channel 5.
