‘Celebrity Big Brother’ producers have their work cut out for them topping this January’s explosive series, but it seems they’ve already got one housemate for the summer picked out.
It has been claimed that straight-talking ‘Mob Wives’ cast member Renee Graziano is being lined up to head into the ‘CBB’ house, and it sounds like there could be plenty of drama ahead.
An insider tells The Sun: “Renee is set to be an explosive housemate - she takes no prisoners, and she won't stand any nonsense. Producers think she'll bring controversy from the get go - and anyone who crosses her will regret it.
‘Mob Wives’ focuses, unsurprisingly, on a group of women whose husbands and other family members have been arrested or charged for crimes alleged to be linked to the Mafia.
Renee’s former ‘Mob Wives’ co-star and best friend, Angela ‘Big Ang’ Raiola, had previously been lined up for the ‘UK vs. USA’-themed series of ‘CBB’ last year, but was forced to pull out after being diagnosed with cancer.
Other stars who have already been tipped to put in an appearance on this year’s ‘CBB’ include ‘Gogglebox’ stars Stephen Webb and Chris Steed, as well as Ben Innes, best known for taking a photo with a plane hijacker on an EgyptAir plane.
The most recent series of ‘CBB’ saw Scotty T of ‘Geordie Shore’ fame crowned winner, with plenty of outrageous moments provided by housemates like Stephanie Davis, Megan McKenna and the late David Gest.
