This year's 'Big Brother' housemates are rumoured to include a blind man, a sex-mad man and the show's first couple.
The reality TV show - which kicks off tonight (05.06.08) on Channel 4 - will also feature an actor who has starred alongside Hugh Grant and a 'Popstars: The Rivals' reject.
An insider said: "We're crossing our fingers that this bunch will deliver the goods.
"We know last year was a little dull, we don't want a repeat of that."
The couple have apparently been forbidden to reveal their relationship to other housemates for a week.
Other contestants set to enter the house include a stand-up comic who has written a special routine for the cameras, one who claims to be the sexiest female housemate yet and another girl willing to reveal her boob job to the nation.
Viewers could also see a strict Muslim hoping to promote the positive aspects of Islam and a super-wealthy housemate planning to enter the house with a £13,000 watch.
Rumours also suggest a parent, a DJ, a former US 'Big Brother' contestant, a Buddhist and a foreign housemate hoping to educate people about their culture.
Bizarrely, one possible housemate claims to have never watched the show.
