There’s just three days to go until Big Brother returns to our TV screens, and here at Gala we’re struggling to contain our excitement!

Channel 5’s re-launch of the hit reality show kicks off with a celebrity version on Thursday the 18th of August, and there’s one question on everyone’s lips – who’s going in that house?

The latest star rumoured to be joining the gang of famous housemates is none other than Eastenders favourite Sid Owen, who plays Ricky Butcher in the soap.

Sid – who came third in I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! in 2005 – made the decision to go into the house at the last minute, according to the Daily Star.

If gossip is to be believed, he could be joining the likes of Kerry Katona, Pamela Anderson and TOWIE’s Amy Childs – lucky Sid!

However, X-factor duo Jedward are also said to be confirmed for the show, and we reckon the pair – who are known for their crazy antics – may have Sid wishing he were back in the jungle eating bugs!

The celebrity version will be followed by a full-length Big Brother show featuring the latest crop of housemates hoping to follow in the footsteps of reality stars such as Brian Dowling, Jade Goody and Chantelle Houghton. Bring. It. On.
