Camp former Dancing On Ice judge Louie Spence and transsexual ex-child star Lauren Harries are reportedly set to enter the Celebrity Big Brother 2013 house next week.
According to The Sun, the pair are the latest names to be linked with the show’s twelfth series, which starts next Thursday night.
Choreographer Louie, 44, became famous after starring in Sky1 show Pineapple Dance Studios in 2010, as well as its 2011 spin-off Louie Spence’s Showbusiness. Last year, he joined the Dancing On Ice panel for its seventh series, but he later left to be replaced with original judge Jason Gardiner.
Harries was known in the eighties as James, the child antiques expert on Terry Wogan’s BBC chat show Wogan. She became Lauren in 2001 after undergoing gender reassignment surgery.
The 34-year-old was a regular guest on Big Brother spin-off show Bit On The Side – who ran a tongue-in-cheek campaign to get her in the house – throughout 2011 and early 2012.
An insider told the paper: “Louie and Lauren should bring a lot of drama and fun to the show.”
Louie’s Pineapple co-star Andrew Stone previously became a housemate in January 2012.
Other names rumoured to be taking part include Outkast rapper Big Boi, Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, football pundit Ron Atkinson and Geordie Shore cast member Charlotte-Letitia Crosby.
