As 14 new contestants prepare to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house tonight, it’s time to get to know those expected a little better.

Who? Ricci Guarnaccio, reality TV star.

Where do I know that face from? Ricci is known for appearing on Newcastle-based reality TV show Geordie Shore, where he described himself as someone who has “got the looks, got the charm; it just works”.

Since leaving the show he has appeared on MTV reality show Ex on the Beach, which saw eight single guys and girls head to paradise where they were greeted by their exes.

Why Celebrity Big Brother? Fellow Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby won the programme last year, so Ricci may be hoping to achieve a second victory.

What can we expect in the house? Ricci describes himself as a ladies’ man so flirting and more flitting probably.


Odds of winning? 17/2

Hosted by Emma Willis, series seven of the hit reality show airs on Channel 5, with viewers promised “countless twists, turns and tough tasks”.

The house has been given a make-over for the new run, but celebrities will not be expecting VIP treatment but, instead, plenty of drama and tension.

Last year’s show was won by Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby, who beat 5ive singer Abz Lowe to the title.
