Popular 90s DJ Brandon Block is the latest celebrity set to compete on 'Celebrity Big Brother' this year
DJ Brandon Block is set to join 'Celebrity Big Brother' when it launches on Tuesday (03.01.17).
The 49-year-old musician - who was popular in the 80s and 90s and is the founding member of techno group The Aloof - is reportedly joining the line-up for the 'All Stars vs. New Stars' special, where he will no doubt talk about his past cocaine addiction, which saw him spend £2,000 feeding his bad habit.
A source told The Sun newspaper: Brandon was a huge name in 90s.
"He was on radio constantly and his hard-partying ways were all over the papers.
"Not only was he a successful DJ but also a big producer throughout the 80s, too. When 'CBB' offered him a spot this year he was well up for it."
Brandon famously stormed the BRIT Awards in 2000 after his drunken mates told him he was to collect an award and allegedly got into an altercation with Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood.
The rumours come following speculation that Katie Price - who won the reality TV show in 2015 - is also set to return.
The 'Loose Women' panelist is said to be featured in the 19-second video teaser posted on the official Channel 5's official Twitter, which shows a silhouette of a busty female, which fans believe is Katie, 38.
If Katie joins the show, she is to share the famous abode with fellow British stars, 35-year-old glamour model, Nicola McClean - who first appeared on 'CBB' in 2012 - and Bianca Gascoigne, the former stepdaughter of retired football star Paul Gascoigne, who are both rumoured to be heading into the house.
US couple Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, Calum Best, Coleen Nolan, James Jordan, Kim Kardashian West's ex Ray-J and Khloe Kardashian's best friend Malika Haqq are also being tipped to enter the bungalow.
'Celebrity Big Brother' kicks off on Channel 5 at 9.00pm on Tuesday (03.01.16).
