Eight famous females - including India Willoughby, Malika Haqq and Ashley James - entered the lavish pad last night (02.01.18) as part of an all-female special to mark 100 years since women won the right to vote, but they won't be alone for long as the 40-year-old Irish hunk has agreed to join the series alongside retired footballer John Barnes - and a few others yet to be confirmed - according to The Sun Online.

It's also believed Love Island's Jonny Mitchell - who angered the nation when he broke Camilla Thurlow's heart in the villa over the summer - is in discussions to join the house following his split from Stephanie Pratt in December.

He said recently: "For me it was 100 per cent real, but I've got no idea what it was for her. She used to talk about when we broke up rather than if. It's a shame because I really liked her.

"I think I've dodged a bullet so I'm not worrying about the aftermath. There's no way I'd ever go back. She used to talk about everyday life like it was a TV show."

Meanwhile, the famous abode has been given a feminine makeover to mark the celebration - a stunning copper bath, which cost a whopping £4,000.

There are two bedrooms - each of which is named after a famous woman who campaigned for women's votes.

The Pankhurst room is named after Emmeline Pankhurst, the leader of the British suffragette movement and the other room is called Davison after political activist Emily Davison, who died when she threw herself under King George V's horse Anmer at the Epsom Derby in 1913.
