Janice Dickinson is being lined up to appear in the latest series of 'Celebrity Big Brother' with show bosses hoping she will shake things up in the house
Janice Dickinson is to appear on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The 57-year-old reality TV star - who has previously worked as a judge on 'America's Next Top Model' - is thought to be close to signing a deal to enter the house when the show returns in August and programme bosses are hoping the mouthy former supermodel will shake things up.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Janice is a reality star. She wound everyone up on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' She'll really shake up the 'CBB' house."
If Janice does take part in the Channel 5 show, she will join a host of stars including Cheryl Fergison - whose 'EastEnders' character Heather Trott was recently axed in a shocking murder storyline - Blue singer Lee Ryan, comedian Julian Clary and Girls Aloud beauty Nadine Coyle.
'Coronation Street' legend Julie Goodyear is also reported to have signed a £300,000 deal to take part with bosses hoping she will be as big a hit as last series' winner Denise Welch.
A show source said: "Julie may be getting on a bit but she's certainly game for a laugh.
"Denise proved that the Corrie stars bring in a decent audience and don't mind poking fun at themselves and having a laugh.
"Julie is keen as mustard to get in the house and is already talking about winning."
