X Factor reject Stevi Ritchie is apparently on Channel 5 bosses Celebrity Big Brother list after being tipped to take part in the new series.
The singer had previously been rumoured to be entering this year’s earlier series in January but was bumped for the likes of Katie Hopkins, Katie Price and Perez Hilton.
However it looks like he still might have a chance of entering, and hoping to follow in Rylan’s footsteps by winning.
The singer previously said he’d ‘love it so much’ to take part in the show.
“He’s been raring to compete ever since he left the X Factor,” a source said today. “And before the last series of CBB he thought it was all going ahead.
“So it was disappointing for him when plans changed. But now he’s even more determined to go in — and to win.”
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the source added: “He thinks he stands a good chance too as he’s very confident in his personality.”
It has also been rumoured that the new series will have a UK vs USA theme, with famous faces from both sides of the Atlantic of the taking part.
Names reportedly signed up include ‘p**n Queen’ Jenna Jameson, reality telly personality Farrah Abraham and model Janice Dickinson, who is said to be getting £300,000 for her appearance.
Team UK is rumoured to hold The Apprentice candidate James Hill, TOWIE’s Gemma Collins, model Keeley Hazell and X Factor judge Tulisa.
