Love it or hate it, Big Brother is back on our screens next week – and her we have a look at the current favourites to enter the house:

The 2014 series, called Big Brother: Power Trip has its live launch on Channel 5 next Thursday, June 5.

The house has been completely renovated with a futuristic twist and up to 16 contestants are expected to take part.

The housemates will still be cut off from the outside world, but perhaps not all the time, there will be the usual surprises in store, maybe some gadgets around the house and above all the show, which will run until mid-August, will be all about power.

Rumoured Stars:

1) Channel 5 is rumoured to be after Gogglebox stars Steph and Dom, to appear in Celebrity Big Brother later in the year. The posh couple were reportedly asked to appear in 2013, but turned down the offer.

2) Meanwhile fellow Gogglebox star George ‘Squeaky’ Gilbey, who appears alongside his mum Linda and stepdad Pete on the Channel 4 show, might be going into the house.

3) Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst is also rumoured to be contestants on CBB later in the year. Bookmakers Ladbrokes have released their odds who this year’s celeb housemates could be, naming Conchita as one of the favourites to sign up for the show.Ladbrokes spokeswoman Jessica Bridge has said: “The odds firmly suggest we’ll be seeing more of Conchita. “It looks like she’ll be sexing up the next series [and] her arrival in the house is sure to see ratings rocket.”

4) Helen Flanagan – The star is eyeing up a return to reality TV, admitting she would definitely consider appearing on Celebrity Big Brother. She said earlier this year: "I've loved CBB this year. It's been really entertaining, brilliant viewing. I'd go into the Big Brother house."

5) White Dee off Benefits Street – Katie Hopkins’ nemesis has been heavily linked to show since the Channel 4 show Benefits Street with A source telling the Metro: ‘Channel 5 bosses were desperate to sign up Dee. They think she will be brilliant.

‘But the move is definitely a controversial one because anyone who is claiming benefits can only do so legally if they are not working. Dee will be earning money in one of the most public ways possible. So unless she stops collecting her benefits, her actions will interest the authorities.

‘Her behaviour on Benefits Street has made it very clear that she has a good knowledge of the welfare system and she will definitely know the rules,’ the insider added to The Sun.
