It's a new year and that can only mean one thing... "Celebrity Big Brother" is back! After a smashing summer series the Channel 5 reality show will make its return with a whole new group of celebrities. Emma Willis is all set to welcome the D-listers as they make their way up the stairs into the house that will monitor them 24/7 for a whole month. One of the stars of this 2015 series is blogger Perez Hilton. The Latin celeb has been exchanging tweets with the "Big Brother" host, making it clear he is joining the cast this year. Perez has been a fan of the show and knows how it works and possibly provide juicy gossip about other celebs, or stir the pot to cause major havoc in the house.

One notable personality that causes controversy whenever she opens her mouth, Katie Hopkins is also rumored to enter the house. Every new season of the show she is on the list of possible candidates and it seems like this time it will materialize. Hopkins is not afraid to share her thoughts and will make for riveting television if she has opted-in this year. Straight out of "Coronation Street," Ken Morley is also rumored to join the line-up. Other stars on the possible housemate list include Patsy Kensit, Alexander O'Neal and Nadia Sawalha. What is a CBB edition without the token glamour model? Alicia Douvall is also a rumor and joins comedia Keith Chegwin and Callum Best. Former "Baywatch" star Jeremy Jackson is also set to join the cast.

Rumors are rumors and nothing will be confirmed until the live launch hosted by Emma Willis. The show will premiere on Wednesday, January 7 at 9pm on the UK's Channel 5. The network will stream the episode online and on Channel 5 +1 if you miss it. The winter edition home has been completely redesigned and has a "twisted fairytale" theme that will most likely weigh in as the initial twist. How will these celebrities be messed with by Big Brother? We can't wait to see! Who are you most excited to seeing if these rumored contestants enter the "Celebrity Big Brother" house?
