Despite the latest series of **Celebrity Big Brother **starting with an all female cast to celebrate 100 years since women won the right to vote, a number of male celebrities will enter the house during Friday's live show.

A selection of men have already confirmed for the line-up, including former England and Liverpool footballer John Barnes, **Love Island **star Jonny Mitchell and Boyzone singer Shane Lynch.

But now, according to a national newspaper, controversial comedian Dapper Laughs is the fourth male to be 'confirmed' to enter the house.

A source told the publication, "Dapper Laughs is going to make great TV and he's definitely going to spice things up in the house. It's been a pretty bland series so far so they definitely need him in there to ruffle some feathers with the ladies."

Dapper Laughs, real name Daniel O'Reilly, seemed to hint he could be joining the popular reality show when he retweeted a fan's tweet which read, 'Imagine if @dapperlaughs is this first man to enter the Celeb Big Brother house this year. You doing it this year or what mate? 😂😂'.

The 27-year-old also seems to have been following the new series which kicked off on Tuesday night, live tweeting throughout the launch show.

Dapper Laughs is best know for his ITV2 show Dapper Laughs: On the Pull, but in recent years he's been heavily** criticised **for his **'distasteful and inappropriate' **material.

Earlier this week Rylan Clark-Neal announced retired footballer John Barnes would be entering the show, with reality star Jonny Mitchell and Irish singer Shane Lynch also now joining the line-up.
