Katie Price is rumoured to be entering 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The television personality and former glamour model has reportedly been enticed to join the reality TV series after landing a "six figure" sum to replace axed housemates Ken Morley and Jeremy Jackson, and could head in as soon as Friday (16.01.15).
On Tuesday (13.01.15), Emma Willis told viewers they could expect a "big, fat, fabulous surprise" during the evening's live episode, leading many to speculate a new housemate could be heading in.
Last month, presenter of 'Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On The Side', Rylan Clark, claimed his pal is desperate to take part in the reality series, but said she would only do it "when the time is right."
He said: "Kate will do Celebrity Big Brother. I think it's inevitable that she will go in there, but when the time is right.
"Will it be in January? I doubt it, but as her mate, I do know how much she wants to do it."
Producers of the Channel 5 show will be hoping the star - who has children Harvey, 12, Junior, nine, Princess, seven, along with 17-month-old Jett and five-month-old Bunny - will add even more drama to the already manic house, due to her sour relationships with several current housemates.
Perez Hilton previously said "I think her moment has passed" about the businesswoman, while model Alicia Douvall, 35, has spoken badly of her in the past for stealing her lover, Dwight Yorke, and 34-year-old Calum Best is rumoured to have slept with the mother-of-five when he was younger.
Viewers could also see friction with 'The Apprentice' candidate Katie Hopkins, 39, if the 36-year-old star enters the house, as she slagged her off last year after naming her fifth child - and second with cheating husband, Kieran Hayler - Bunny.
She said at the time: "Makes sense, given your dad was going at it like a rabbit with all of mum's mates."
