2017's first Celebrity Big Brother series hasn't even finished yet, but we're already looking forward to the big summer blockbuster edition.
Channel 5 has yet to officially confirm what to expect from the TWENTIETH celebrity series, but there are rumours that it might be a second "All Stars vs New Stars" after the success of the first at the start of the year, and the title being bandied about is "Summer Legends".
So who might turn up?
The Cheeky Girls
Who? Popstars: The Rivals rejects turned genuine popstars for a while
What's the rumour? According to The Sun, the Cheekies are in 'serious talks' to appear in a special 'pairs-themed' series of Big Brother. Now, we're assuming they mean the Celebrity edition, but who knows?
We're frankly amazed they've never gone on CBB before, so this has been a long time coming.
Who? Ex-Sutton FC 'pie-gate' goalkeeper
What's the rumour? Really this is just wishful thinking. Mainly from a bunch of people on Twitter pleading with bosses to put the poor git in the house in the hopes of him winning some dosh after the ridiculous farce which saw the 46-year-old having to resign over eating a ruddy pie during a match.
Chances of it actually happening? Depends on whether we remember who he is by the summer.
Who? Ex on the Beach star / model
What's the rumour? Not much, but The Sun claims that she's had talks to appear in the show later this year.
"Everyone knows Jemma makes for great telly so it's no surprise she's on the Celebrity Big Brother wanted list, a classic 'source' said.
"She's not afraid to have a barney or strip off so she'll definitely spice up the house."
Who? Boxer Amir Khan's wife
What's the rumour? The 25-year-old model told her Snapchat followers that she's considering an offer from Channel 5.
She wrote: "Hey guys, I got asked to be on Celebrity Big Brother ... it's a very tricky one and idk if I can do it.
"I want all my followers advice. On my last Instagram post tell me whether I should or shouldn't? I want you guys to pick! X."
Who? Union J singer
What's the rumour? According to The Mirror, the former X Factor star is "in talks" to joining the next lineup of Celebrity Big Brother.
Apparently, he had previously come close to appearing on the show but dropped out at the last minute due to work commitments.
Who? The Only Way is Essex star
What's the rumour? Bobby may end up following his co-star and BFF Gemma Collins into the house after confirming to The Sun that he had a "meeting" with show bosses.
He said: "I've watched it literally since series one day one, and I'm on BOTS most series to be fair and I think I'd quite fancy the challenge of doing it, because I'm such a fan of the show."
Bobby has indeed made regular appearances as a panellist on BOTS with host Rylan Clark-Neal, but has said in the past that he is reluctant to go in because he is such a Big Brother nerd.
Jeremy McConnell and Stephanie Davis
Who? Irish model / former Hollyoaks star
What's the rumour? Could this really happen? These two found 'love' on the show in the past, and their on-off status seemed to rumble on for 47 years. As recently as last week, Jeremy was appearing on This Morning for a DNA test on live TV to find out if he's the father of her son.
According to 'sources', the Daily Star claimed that the pair were in talks to sign up for the series, despite not being on speaking terms.
Before January's series, Stephanie was also rumoured to be heading in, but tweeted: "Come on now. I will not be taking part in CBB 2017. It was lovely to be asked by my priorities are my son and being an amazing mummy.
Who? Celebrity blogger, featured in CBB 15
What's the rumour? Perez actually told us on Twitter that CBB bosses had offered him a deal to return to the house for the current series, but he wasn't happy with it:
Perez also claimed that he turned down more than "£250,000" from Celebrity Big Brother producers, adding: "I wanted a lot more than that."
In December, Perez Hilton put public pressure on Channel 5 to meet his salary demands as rumours started swirling about fellow All Stars Speidi (aka Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt), Coleen Nolan, James Jordan and Jasmine Waltz returning to the Celebrity Big Brother house.
In his trademark sassy style, Perez revealed: "For those of you who sweetly keep wanting an update or confirmation.... Yes, I was asked to appear on next month's #CelebrityBigBrother "all-stars" edition in the U.K. Despite my better judgement, I said I would do it... IF the price is right!"
So, maybe he'll be convinced next time around?
Who? Boxing manager, featured in CBB 14
What's the rumour? Kellie has said that she was "in a very bad place" during her last appearance on the show, and would love another crack at it.
"I would like to go back into the Big Brother house now so that people could see the real Kellie Maloney," she told The Sun.
"When they saw me back in 2014 I was in a very bad place because I was coming to terms with myself and I was fighting myself as well as being accepted by the world, because there was still a lot of Frank in me.
"The Big Brother house helped me a lot, so I'd love to go back, as I don't think the world really met the real Kellie Maloney. I wouldn't say no if it was offered to me, as it would give me the opportunity to show the world how I've matured and how I've grown up and how I've become the real me."
Who? Former child star, TV personality, featured in CBB 12
What's the rumour? Like Kellie, Lauren is desperate to get back in the house and have another go at winning the grand prize.
"It's always possible, you never know what might happen," she told The Sun. "I need to go back in! There have been petitions, I get hundreds of notifications a day. I can't go outside as people are asking why I'm not in the house!"
"I never do anything just for attention, I'd never stage anything like Speidi – they act. They make a few words spread like Lord of the Flies, then starts the confrontation and it's all lies."
Who? Glamour model, featured in CBB 10
What's the rumour? The Sun has claimed that Rhian has been approached to return to the CBB house, and she seems up for it too.
She said: "I would love to go back in and experience it properly. I am more mature now and less hot-headed.
"My time was ruined in the house, I went in and had to lie about having a boyfriend at the time and it got me in all kinds of trouble. I am a natural-born flirt, I wasn't doing anyone any harm."
Who? US reality star, featured in CBB 12
What's the rumour? According to the Daily Star, Courtney had been approached by producers for the summer edition in January.
While Courtney hasn't responded to the reports, the "insider" also claimed that Courtney is definitely up for returning and would even consider staying in the UK for months after the show ended.
Who? Teen Mom USA star, featured in CBB 16
What's the rumour? Farrah has kind of started this rumour herself, posting a story of a second "All Star" series on her Instagram.
Along with her post, she wrote that a comeback would be "fierce". Ergo, she's up for it.
However, we're not totally sure Channel 5 would welcome her back with open arms after THAT whole bust-up with Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace on BOTS.
Channel 4-era celebrities
So far, Channel 5 has generally only welcomed back celebrities from its own era of CBB series. But there are rumours that this may change with the next series.
The Sun reports that Channel 5 is considering bringing back even more iconic CBB stars to make it "the best out of the 20 series".
We've recently seen the likes of Vanessa Feltz and John McCririck return to the house as part of tasks, so maybe they could be convinced to make a full time comeback?
