Music names rumoured for annual reality TV show

Lady Sovereign is reported to be following in the footsteps of former collaborator Preston by appearing in the next series of Celebrity Big Brother.

According to online rumours, backed up by sources who have spoken to NME.COM, the rapper – real name Louise Harman –  will enter the house when the Channel 4 series returns on December 31.

Along with her own records, the rapper guested on The Ordinary Boys‘ song ‘Nine2Five’, which followed frontman Preston‘s stint on the same show.

Other names rumoured for the house include Basshunter, former Another Level singer Dane Bowers and Ronnie Wood‘s ex Ekaterina Ivanova.

Boy George was set to take part but a judge ruled his involvement would violate the terms of his probation.

The full list of housemates will be confirmed officially when the programme starts.
