Several celebrities have been rumored to be joining the upcoming season of “Celebrity Big Brother.”
Two of those are from the inner circle of Kim Kardashian – or at least one of them still is.
Kim will not be joining the line-up but her best Jonathan Cheban reportedly signed up to take part in the Channel 5 reality show for a hefty six-figure sum.
Mirror noted that Cheban is not only Kim’s BFF but he is also very close to Kanye West and momager Kris Jenner, who he often parties with.
Express reported that the show’s producers wanted to have “a member of the Kardashian family’s inner circle for years”.
An insider told Mirror: “Jonathan has a unique insight into the world’s most famous couple. He’ll also make great TV as he’s not afraid to shy away from a row and he’s pretty outspoken.”

Scott Disick has also been said to be interest to have his stint in the famous house.
The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star has reportedly been offered a deal worth an estimated £660,000 to enter the reality show house.
Disick split from long-term girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian earlier this year.
Mirror quoted a Daily Star source, saying: “They want him to open up about the Kardashians because viewers will love it. There’s a good chance he’ll let slip some juicy details.”
Other celebrities rumored to be entering the house are: Nancy Dell’Olio, Tiffany Pollard, John Partridge, Kristina Rihanoff, Spencer Matthews, Dapper Laughs, Gemma Collins, Vanilla Ice, Koo Stark, Rachel Christie, Stephanie Davis, Nadya Suleman aka Octomom, and Lillie Lexie.
“Celebrity Big Brother 2016” is set to air on January 5, 2016 at 9pm on Channel 5.
Emma Willis will return as host along with Rylan Clark and his Big Brother’s Bit on the Side.
The house has undergone a major costume change and now has a theatrical theme.
