Former 'Coronation Street' actress Shobna Gulati is reportedly wanted for the next series of 'Celebrity Big Brother'
Shobna Gulati is being targeted for the new series of 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The former 'Coronation Street' actress' representatives are set to meet with producers of the show with a view of her entering the famous abode next month.
A source told the Mirror Online: "Producers have been arranging a meeting with Shobna's agents in hope of getting her on the show next month.
"Nothing is confirmed yet but they're very interested."
Programme bosses wouldn't confirm whether the speculation surrounding the former 'Loose Women' panelist is true, but they are likely to be busy with other matters after the current line-up was reportedly leaked to the media ahead of the show launch on 1 August.
According to the Daily Star newspaper, the list includes 'Geordie Shore' star Nathan Henry, 'TOWIE's Pete Wicks, 'Real Housewives' star Brandi Glanville and 'Ex on the Bach' beauty Jemma Lucy.
The leak also revealed former Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding, disgraced TV presenter John Leslie, former 'X Factor' contestant Amelia Lily, 'Gogglebox' star Sandi Bogle, and Rodrigo Alves, AKA the Human Ken Doll, will all be going into the house.
However, this may change because of the leak.
A source said: "This is a nightmare for producers. They only want the housemates to know who they'll be living with once they walk into the house.
"Now they will have the chance to find out about each other online. It could ruin the dynamic producers were hoping for."
It was recently claimed Paul Danan will appear on the show as bosses still remember his entertaining antics on 'Love Island' in 2005 - which led to a spin-off show for himself and castmates Calum Best and Fran Cosgrave, 'Calum, Fran, and Dangerous Danan' - and hope he's just as crazy as ever.
A source said: "Paul's name has been bandied around the 'Celebrity Big Brother' team ever since 'Love Island' returned to our screens. He was completely bonkers on that in 2005 so producers think he will be a great addition to 'CBB'.
"They're hoping he'll bring a bit of the old 'Love Island' vibe to the house and stir up some mischief. It should be an explosive series with him on board."
