Celebrity Big Brother thrown into CHAOS? US housemates delay UK arrival just DAYS before 2017 live launch

A long list of names have already been confirmed and rumoured for the latest series of Channel 5’s hit show.

But Celebrity Big Brother bosses could be about to face trouble with it being reported some of the line-up are refusing to arrive in the UK.

According to reports, the US stars who feature in the line-up have decided to make their entrance last minute.

With it being New Year’s Day today, just two days ahead of launch, the US stars have apparently asked to stay at home for celebrations.

This means the won’t be travelling to the UK until just one day before the show kicks off, or maybe even on the very day.

Emma Willis returns to host the series on Channel 5 at 9pm on Tuesday 3rd January.

But will the demands of the guests mean a last minute change to who will enter the house?

According to the Daily Star, some US stars declined to fly over to the UK on New Year’s Eve.

A source apparently told them: “Everything is going to be very last minute. This is causing a real headache for production staff…”

“There are serious concerns things could go wrong if one of them misses their flight.”

Meanwhile, a recent clue revealed by Big Brother’s Twitter page seemed to hint that Calum Best was entering the house for a second stint.

Calum was tipped to re-enter the house in 2017 as part of the All Stars vs new Stars theme and a new video may have just confirmed this.

Teased by the show as someone who is “single and ready to mingle”, it looks like this ninth confirmed housemate is sure to leave everyone hot under the collar.

Leaving clues as to who they are, the silhouetted figure with a heavily distorted voice said: “I’ve been told I’m eye-candy, and do you know what? So be it.” 

With his name having being swirling around for some time now, many people took to Twitter to speculate that the latest celebrity could be former X Factor content and all round hunk Sam Callahan. 

Meanwhile, quite a few people have also speculated that the mystery male could be none other than Calum.

Nicola McLean has been confirmed to enter the house, while other names thrown into the mix include Bianca Gascoigne, Lauren Goodger and Coleen Nolan.
