Celebrity Big Brother has revealed three celebrities that will play a key part in this year’s series – but they won’t be housemates.

Burnley radio presenter Jordan North, Bury-born actor Layton Williams and former Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse, have been signed up for the Celebrity Big Brother after show.

They will appear as ‘houseguests’ on Celebrity Big Brother: Late and Live, which airs after the main show.

As houseguests, the celebrities will offer their opinions on all of the latest happenings in the Big Brother house, alongside presenters AJ Odudu, from Blackburn, and Will Best.

A spokesperson for Celebrity Big Brother posted the announcement today (January 28) and said: “Say hello to our Celebrity Big Brother: Late and Live houseguests for the series.”

Many people are excited about the announcement.

One person said: “I was praying Jordan was going to be a housemate… but buzzing for him!”

Another said: “Oh I was so hoping Jordan would be going in.”

A third commenter said: “Fabulous that Oti is back she was awesome. And I love Jordan and Layton.” 

ITV has yet to confirm the line-up for its reality show, which is set to return to our screens on March 4.

Hosts AJ and Will will reveal the new cast of famous faces who are entering the iconic Big Brother house in Celebrity Big Brother: Live Launch.

The celebrities will leave luxury behind and they’ll take part in the social experiment as they’re isolated from the outside world.

Cameras will catch their every move and they’ll battle it out to become the winner.

Celebrity Big Brother starts Monday, March 4, at 9pm on ITV1, ITVX, STV and STV Player.
