Ginuwine has hinted that he’s coming to the UK for Celebrity Big Brother.
The music legend – real name Elgin Baylor Lumpkin – may have been one of the top-selling R&B artists in the 1990s, but he’s also known for his big family.
The musician, 47, has fathered nine children with five women, and now Channel 5 producers are said to be hoping his appearance in the house will spark more romance.
This morning, he boarded a first class flight from Qatar – and fans are convinced he’s headed to London to join the CBB house.
“Man such a crazy night gotta love Qatar tho now headed to the next stop the work don’t stop trust me grind!” he posted on Instagram.
He added: “Let’s get it and yes I’️m tired as !?$&.”
Fans couldn’t contain their excitement, with one commenting: “You coming to London for Celebrity Big Brother? Can’t wait!”
Earlier today, Ronan Keating confirmed that one of his Boyzone bandmates will join the Celebrity Big Brother house tomorrow night.
Shane Lynch will be the third male star to join the line-up that started with all females.
“My boy @shanelynchlife stepping into the #BigBrother house tomorrow,” Ronan tweeted.
“He is gonna smash it. Excited for you all to get to see the Shanno we all know and love #honest #loyal #strongheart (sic).”
And fans rushed to share their excitement over Shane joining the show – with many convinced he has what it takes to win.
“I’m really excited about this! Not going to lie, I might put a cheeky bet on – he is sure to win the heart of the nation,” one fan tweeted.
“If Shane goes in then I know who my winner will be #fave,” another added.
“He is going to be brilliant, I am backing him to win,” another added.
He’ll be forced to part with his wife Sheena White, a backing singer, and their two daughters, Billie Rae and Marley Mae.
It came after Love Island’s Jonny was confirmed as the second male housemate to enter Celebrity Big Brother .
The handsome hunk, 26, was snapped up by Channel 5 bosses after becoming single again in December and producers hope he’ll be his typical flirtatious self and create sexual tension in the infamous surveillance house.
The 26-year-old reality love rat will probably spill all about his fellow Love Island contestants when he heads into the house.
Opening up about how he really feels about his former Love Island co-stars recently (which included Scottish beauty Camilla , model hunk Jamie Jewitt, and eventual winners Amber Davies and Kem Cetinay ), Jonny didn’t hold back.
“I wouldn’t like people who need attention. That bugged me on Love Island – if some people didn’t have the attention on them for a minute then they had to do something. Watching it in there it’s very transparent, but on television it isn’t,” he said to OK magazine.
“I was myself in Love Island,” he reminded everyone.
Discussing his CBB tactics, Jamie claims he will only act like himself.
“If I did go in I wouldn’t go in there with any sort of game plan. Hopefully CBB would be a bit more realistic,” he previously teased.
The all-female launch of the Channel 5 show, marking a century since women won the right to vote in the UK, kicked off on Tuesday evening and former Liverpool star John Barnes, 54, will be joining the ladies on Friday ahead of the first evictions next week.
After teasing that the mystery male was a footballer, Rylan finally announced the name at the end of Tuesday night’s Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side.
“As you know, Friday night will receive some gentleman. Tonight I can reveal one of those very men is going to be Liverpool legend and rap superstar John Barnes,” he said.
* Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
