Professional footballer Jermaine Pennant has been linked to the new series of Celebrity Big Brother.
The sporting star has played for Arsenal and Liverpool but is more well known for his three drink-drive convictions.
In 2005, he was jailed after admitting to drink-driving while banned, and has been known for his controversial moments.
“When [Jermaine] started playing football everyone thought he was going to be a real success story. He had a tough upbringing so it was the classic rags to riches,” a source told The Sun newspaper.
“But everything went a bit wrong for him and his career started to slide after he was charged for drink driving.
He’s got a really interesting story and the producers think some people could really relate to what he’s been through.
“Jermaine would definitely be a pull for any football fans with all the clubs he’s played at.”
Other rumoured names include Celebs Go Dating’s Charlotte Dawson, X Factor and Ex On The Beach’s Casey Johnson and Gogglebox star Sandra Martin.
Celebrity Big Brother 2018 will air on Channel 5 this summer.
