Love Island star Jonny Mitchell

Love Island star Jonny Mitchell has been linked to Celebrity Big Brother 2018 – despite previous reports suggesting that the show had banned contestants from its ITV2 rival.

In January, the Daily Star claimed that CBB had blacklisted the stars of Love Island, as it competes with Ex On The Beach, which airs on Channel 5’s Viacom sister network MTV.

The ITV2 dating show is also seen as the arch rival of Big Brother’s ‘civilian’ version, having thrashed it in the ratings earlier this year.

However, it seems bosses could be about to relax the ban, as The Sun claims that Jonny is the first male contestant to sign up for CBB in January.

The 26-year-old business director took part in the most recent series of Love Island, ‘coupling up’ with contestants including Camilla Thurlow and Tyla Carr.

More recently, he has been romantically involved with former Made In Chelsea star and CBB housemate Stephanie Pratt, but the pair reportedly split last month.

“Jonny is going to be a big hit on the show,” a source told the newspaper. “Viewers really enjoyed watching him on Love Island this summer, and clearly there’s still more to see from Jonny.

“His split from Stephanie was a major factor in Channel 5 booking him for the new series. He is guaranteed to bring some drama to the house and romance one of the female contestants.”

Recently it was announced that Celebrity Big Brother will begin with an all-female line-up, in a twist to mark 100 years since women first won the right to vote in the UK.

However, male housemates will eventually arrive, after the women have spent a currently unspecified period of time in the house by themselves.
