Courtney Stodden is heading into the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.

The busty blonde, who shot to fame when she wed 53-year-old 'Green Mile' actor Doug Hutchison at the age of just 16, is set to star on the Channel 5 show - but her husband will not follow her into the house as bosses reportedly weren't keen on them appearing on the programme together.

A source told MailOnline: "The producers only want Courtney on the show and vetoed Doug coming in with her. She's young, hot and wild - plus they have a pool and hot tub to fill.

"This is an opportunity for her to get up in front of the world and stand on her own two perplex stilettos!"

Courtney, 18, flew into London this weekend in preparation for the show's launch tomorrow (22.08.13), armed with suitcases full of revealing outfits by designer Maggie Barry, who has worked with Katy Perry, Ke$ha, and Nicki Minaj.

The platinum-haired beauty is said to be most excited about letting loose and downing alcoholic beverages, since the legal drinking age in the UK is 18.

The source added: "As the legal drinking age is 21 in America, Courtney has never done the party scene or had the college lifestyle experience, so it will all be new to her."

Courtney is rumoured to be joined by a motley crew of stars including flamboyant dancer Louie Spence, 5ive singer Abz Love, Outkast rapper Big Boi, exercise instructor Mr. Motivator and former football manager Ron Atkinson.
