Former Big Brother star Jade Goody – and family – is hotly tipped to re-enter the house on Friday night – this time as a celebrity.

According to newspaper reports, the 25-year-old has been signed up for Celebrity Big Brother. The show has refused to comment.

The dippy star and toyboy lover Jack Tweedy, 19, have already reportedly been whisked off in a helicopter to a mystery location.

The couple are tipped to arrive with Jade’s mum Jackiey, 48, and gran Sylvia, 67, at a secret house next door to the main building.

Host Davina McCall has already warned viewers that a spanner will be thrown into the works today when a “family” arrives.

Jade shot to fame in Big Brother 3, where her bubbly personality and general knowledge gaffes won the admiration of viewers. Unlike other former contestants, she has enjoyed success in the spotlight since.

This series of the celebrity show kicked off on Wednesday. Contestants include former Miss Great Britain Danielle Lloyd, Kenny Everett’s former sidekick Cleo Rocos, 70s pop singer Leo Sayer, Jermaine Jackson and former star of The A-Team, Dirk Benedict.
