Keith Chegwin has agreed to appear in the new series of 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The 57-year-old TV presenter, who is perhaps best known for his appearances on the 'Big Breakfast', has starred on reality TV shows in the past, including 'Dancing On Ice' in 2013, and is set to enter the house alongside the likes of Simon Cowell's ex Alicia Douvall and Calum Best.
An insider at Channel 5 explained why TV bosses were keen to have him appear on the show, telling The Sun newspaper: "CBB bosses hope Keith will bring a lot of fun to the show.
"He is a nice guy and could be the peacekeeper in the house."
Last week, a number of stars were linked to the show, including Katie Price, who will reportedly be joined in the house by one of her former lovers.
Although Katie's ex-husband Alex Reid and her "first love" Dane Bowers have appeared on the show before, that scenario failed to ignite the drama TV bosses were craving.
An insider said: "There was nowhere near the fireworks they hoped for.
"So this year they want Katie in there herself to cause havoc with an ex. It could be very explosive."
Katie's list of former flames includes Dwight Yorke, 43, Gareth Gates, 30, and her first husband Peter Andre, 41.
