Fern Britton is being lined up for 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

The TV presenter - who co-hosted 'This Morning' with Phillip Schofield for six years before being replaced by Holly Willoughby in 2009 - is set to enter the 'CBB' house when the show returns on ITV in March and she will reportedly open up about her rift with Schofield.

A source told The Sun's Bizarre column: "She wants to show the public a different side to her — unscripted and unapologetic.

"She has a lot of stories to tell and she won’t hold back when it comes to her relationships with people like Phil.

"They don’t speak anymore so there are no bridges to burn as far as she is concerned.”

A 'CBB' spokesman said: “All names are purely speculation at this stage.”

Meanwhile, Roman Kemp has also been tipped to star in this year’s 'Celebrity Big Brother', following his Capital FM exit.

The 31-year-old star recently announced his decision to leave Capital Breakfast after more than 10 years of working for the network, and betting company Coral have priced him at 2/1 to become a contestant on the new series of the ITV reboot of the hit reality show.

Coral's PR manager John Hill told The Sun newspaper: "Roman Kemp has announced he is leaving Capital’s Breakfast Show and many punters believe he will head straight into the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.

"We make the presenter odds-on to be one of the contestants on the return of the celebrity show."

The original version of 'Big Brother' and its celebrity-based counterpart ran on Channel 4 from 2000 until 2010, before moving to Channel 5 until 2018.

But the format was revived by ITV towards the end of 2023, and was eventually won by former lawyer Jordan Sangha, 26, with dancer Olivia Young, 23, as runner-up.

The famous faces taking part in 'Celebrity Big Brother' will be revealed live on air during the launch episode on March 4, but some other big names rumoured to be taking part include former 'X Factor' judge Louis Walsh and 'Love Island' winner Ekin-Su Culculoglu.
