Ron Atkinson and Loose Women star Carol McGiffin have reportedly signed up for Celebrity Big Brother.

Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby and model Sophie Anderton are also said to have agreed deals with Channel 5 for the latest series, according to The Sun.

Crosby and Atkinson have apparently accepted deals worth nearly six figures, while Anderton has agreed a £30,000 contract.

Former Manchester United manager Atkinson quit ITV as a pundit in 2004 after making racist comments on live TV when he thought his microphone was switched off.

Anderton - who has previously appeared on both I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! and Love Island - was previously addicted to cocaine at the height of her career but has been clean for over three years.

Charlotte Crosby is quoted as saying: "We have cameras filming us 24/7 [on Geordie Shore], so I think Big Brother will be a walk in the park."
