Emma Willis confirms Rachel Johnson is to enter Celebrity Big Brother house

oris Johnson's sister Rachel has been confirmed for "Celebrity Big Brother".

Rumours about who will be entering the famous house have been rife since the end of last year and, although fans won't have to wait too long to find out who will be going in because it will launch tonight (02.01.17), the show's host Emma Willis has confirmed the journalist is one of the big names confirmed to take part in the all-female series.

Speaking on BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show this morning, she said: "There is one confirmed [her dad] was fantastic in "I'm A Celeb". She's a journalist and a writer."

And, although the 41-year-old presenter doesn't get a say on who will enter the abode, she is able to suggest people who she believes would make good television.

She explained: "I never get a say. I kind of run the show for the 90 minutes we're on air and then the person in my ear is running the show really. I have zero say - but I can suggest because they say if you can think of anyone, just send us a text and let us know. They were working on housemates up until quite late because they wanted to get it 100 per cent perfect. I found out just before Christmas."

Scott Disick - the ex-boyfriend of Kourtney Kardashian - is also believed to be taking part but Emma doesn't think he'd do it because he doesn't really needs the cash .

She added: "They talk about him every year - I don't think he really needs it."
