Eye, eye: Celebrity Big Brother returns tonight (August 15)Channel 5

Celebrity Big Brother makes its big comeback on Channel 5 tonight, just two days after Big Brother wrapped up, with Luke Anderson being named the eventual winner.

And the question we all want the answer to now is who is going to be giving up their glamorous life of showbiz parties and photo shoots to live in a house covered in cameras, capturing their every move 24 hours of the day?

Julian Clary is just one of the names being linked to the show. The comedian has made a number of appearances on shows including Strictly Come Dancing, so he’s no stranger to reality TV. Can we expect to see him enter the famous house tonight?

Former Loose Women panellist Coleen Nolan, who found fame with her sisters as a teen in the band The Nolans, is also rumoured to be appearing on CBB.

The 47-year-old previously skated her way to four place on Dancing On Ice after winning over the audiences – and if she goes on the fly-on-the-wall show, we’re sure she could charm us all over again.

Martin Kemp – famous for hits such as Gold with band Spandau Ballet, as well as for his role as EastEnders bad boy Steve Owen, is another celeb rumoured to be joining Celebrity Big Brother.

Samantha Brick would certainly keep us entertained, if rumours about her appearance are true. The journalist hit the headlines earlier this year, complaining about being “too beautiful” and moaning about the downfalls associated with having good looks. She faced a huge backlash from the public and became a figure of fun. We wonder if she’s learned to be a little more gracious since then?

TOWIE’s Lauren Goodger could inject a bit of Essex fun into the house if she enters, as the reality TV star is rumoured to do. Famous for her on-off romance with fellow TOWIE star Mark Wright, Lauren could certainly add a bit of spice to the famous house.

Corrie legend Julie Goodyear, aka Bet Lynch, who was in the soap for more than 25 years, could also liven things up. With three marriages under her belt – as well one annulled marriage to add to her tally – we’re sure Bet could give the young ‘uns a few tips about navigating the highs and lows of love. She's no doubt got a fair few tales about Corrie too…

And if the stories about MC Harvey going on the show are true, fireworks are sure to fly. The rapper was previously married to Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon, but the couple split after he cheated on her with singer Javine Hylton. They divorced and he went on to have a child with Javine, before, ahem, (apparently) cheating on her too.

Then earlier this year MC Harvey hit the headlines after appearing to suggest in a magazine article he and Cheryl Cole had hooked up. Chezza responded furiously on social networking site Twitter, slamming his claims.

Others rumoured to join Celebrity Big Brother tonight include Dog the Bounty Hunter (Duane Chapman), Cheryl Fergison i.e. Heather from EastEnders and model Danica Thrall.

Celebrity Big Brother kicks off tonight on Channel 5 at 9pm.
