Former “X Factor” finalist Chris Maloney is reportedly joining the latest season of “Celebrity Big Brother”.
The singer is rumoured to be entering alongside longtime friend Danniella Westbrook as a familiar face to help the former “EastEnders” star cope with her health inside the house, reported Digital Spy.
Westbrook went on record as calling 2014 the worst year of her life following a drug relapse and a move into sheltered housing, but 2015 took a more positive turn as she started the year holidaying with pal Maloney in Egypt to celebrate his engagement to partner Gary Doran.
The actress was reportedly lined up for the summer run of the series but bosses decided she wasn’t healthy enough to take part.
She has now apparently been given the go-ahead for the new series and with Maloney by her side, it looks like we could be seeing the pair join fellow rumoured housemates David Gest and Kim Kardashian-West’s best friend Jonathan Cheban when the new series launches on January 5.
