The world hasn't even got over the nipple-slurping, Dappy-rubbing, bathroom-sex-having sexploits of the last season of Celebrity Big Brother, yet the rumour mill is already fired up about the next batch of stars to enter the house.

First of all, how gutted are we that Helen Flanagan has turned down an offer to appear on CBB this summer? She would have been perfect in that house - all those mirrors to pose in, all those opportunities to strip down to her bikini - plus it's not like she's exactly… busy right now, is it? AND she does every single reality show going, bar the ones you need to sing in. What's going on, Flanners?

But excitingly, Hollywood star Gary Busey is DEFINITELY signed up to appear in the show. Gary, who once actually snorted cocaine OFF HIS DOG, is legit insane. There is already speculation in heat Towers that Gary might possibly do a murder while he's in the house.

Who might he murder? Erm. The only other person so far believed to have signed on the dotted line is Gogglebox's George Gilbey, who's most famous for sitting right in the crook of his mum's corner sofa and moaning about his love life.

According to the Mirror, a CBB insider reckons the producers have a tough battle on their hands trying to find a line-up that will make telly as good as the last series.

"The pressure is on for producers to match the last series of CBB but it’s going to be tough," the source claimed.

"Bosses always like a Hollywood star in the mix and Gary ticks that box. Producers hope George will be a cheeky chappie but are gutted Helen turned them down."

Ah well. We're sure Channel 5 will come knocking on Hel's door again soon with something even more prestigious for her.

Yep, Leo skipped out of the CBB house because of his dirty pants. Erm, every heard of a washing machine L? Sayer popped into the diary room to “humbly request” new underwear as he didn’t want to use the CBB house’s washing facilities. When Big Brother refused, Sayer smashed the fire doors open and proceeded to struggle with two hefty security guards while shouting obscenities. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, here's some video evidence:

Darryn Lyons weird, lumpy, bumpy "abs"

"WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?" was our general reaction to Darryn Lyon's lumpy, bumpy abs. Unsurprisingly the celebrity photographer admitted on the show that he had undergone a “contouring” procedure to remove fat around his muscles and give impression of abs. WOAH, so they're not natural? Get outta town! No, please, literally get out of town. We're terrified.

Katie needed a little extra support to collect her crown. "They wanted to pull me from the show, I had a really bad medical problem." No kidding.
