A “honey trapper” and his boss, a mother and daughter and a psychology student are among the latest crop of contestants entering the Big Brother house tonight.

Fifteen newcomers will be welcomed in by host Emma Willis during the live launch of Channel 5′s summer series.

They include Kieran Lee, 25, a CCTV installation engineer and “honey trapper”, who works at the detective agency of fellow housemate Rebecca Jane.

Rebecca investigates cheating partners by using attractive people as bait and is the author of 2013 book The Real Lady Detective Agency.


The 32-year-old made her first million at the age of 21.

Estate agent Charlotte Keys, 24, who says she “will be the most argumentative housemate” is moving in alongside her antiques dealer mother Mandy Longworth, 51.

Psychology student Raphael Korine speaks five languages and claims to have cheated on every partner he has ever had.

Raphael, 22, said he sees the programme as the “ultimate psychology test”.

Model Chanelle McCleary, 24, could bring the drama as she said she wants to “cause some mayhem” during her stay.


Arthur Fulford, 24, is heir to his family’s 3,000-acre estate and said he signed up looking for an exciting experience, while self-confessed party girl Ellie Young, 23, said Big Brother has always been on her wish list.

Nightclub owner Joe Quaranta, 55, wants to show that “oldies can do well too”.

Previously announced contestants include the nephew of TV’s Louie Spence.

Lotan Carter, of Essex, starred alongside his uncle on Pineapple Dance Studios and now forms part of dance group Dreamboys.


Also 28, Ex On The Beach star Kayleigh Morris, of Port Talbot, has said she was keen to see if she would “sink or swim” in her latest stint on reality television.

Next on the list are single London sisters Deborah and Hannah Agboola.

Hannah, 23, holds the title of Miss Nigeria UK and hopes to inspire young people to turn away from crime and encourage UK-born Nigerians to “embrace their culture”.

Equally strong-willed Deborah, 25, said her ambitious nature is thanks to her mother’s mantra: “If you want the sweetest banana, you have to climb the highest tree.”


Childhood sweethearts Imran and Sukhvinder Javeed, of Leeds, join the show after saying how their different backgrounds meant their relationship was initially frowned upon.

A twist will see viewers getting to choose the last person to enter the reality TV house.

The housemate chosen by the public will have access to the outside world and have “great power” within the Big Brother compound.
