Big Brother winners Brian Dowling and Cameron Stout are rumoured to be among this year’s potential housemates.
In a cruel twist 40 wannabe contestants have been selected to attend the Big Brother launch on Wednesday, June 9, but host Davina McCall will reveal only 20 can be chosen by the public to enter the house.
Brian, who won the second series of the Channel 4 reality show, and Cameron, who was crowned the winner of the third series, are among the 40 hopefuls, the Daily Mirror reports.
Irish contestant Brian, 31, went on to present SMTV after winning the show in 2001.
Scottish fish trader Cameron, 39, won over viewers for being proud to still be a virgin when he appeared on the show, and was excited to go on a Big Brother exchange to Africa. But since winning in 2002 his showbiz work has amounted to panto appearances.
Other hopefuls will apparently include Danielle Laws, the glamour model daughter of Burnley boss Brian Laws and Olivia Van Day, Bucks Fizz’s David Van Day’s eldest daughter.
