Meghan Markle's sister Samantha 'confirms' that she will appear on Celebrity Big Brother

Channel 5 announces Celebrity Big Brother theme and new eye

This year's theme is the 'eye of the storm'...

Samantha Markle has caused her sister plenty of controversy this year, releasing a tell-all book entitled Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister. And it looks like the drama is set to continue after she enters the Celebrity Big Brother House.

Samantha, who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis (MS), has always been very vocal about wanting to share the limelight her sister has acquired since marrying Prince Harry.

The theme for this year's CBB, which launches next month, is 'Eye of the Storm' - as all the housemates have been involved in media scandals.

Other rumoured housemates include Donald Trump's accuser Stormy Daniels, kidnapped model Chloe Ayling and recently-axed Strictly pro Brendan Cole.

Samantha revealed the news on US series Inside Edition that she'll be joining the line-up.

When asked why she would join the show, she replied: "Why not? Life is about cashing in. You take opportunities as they arise, and hopefully you enjoy the ride, and you can make it as positive as you can.

"And you can make it as positive as you can, there’s nothing wrong with it. The purpose of that show would not be to discuss [Meghan].”

Samantha has suggested that she won't 'cash in' on her sister's fame and talk about Meghan on the show. However, when a presenter pointed out that she would certainly be questioned by her other housemates, she replied with a non-committal "Oh…"

Speaking on Good Morning Britain last week, host Emma Willis addressed speculation that Stormy Daniels will be appearing on the show.

She said, "Because the series is called 'The Eye of the Storm', people are connecting the two words together. Where has that come from?" Emma said.

"But it would be an amazing booking. I'm still waiting for the confirmed final list."

Celebrity Big Brother returns later this year on Channel 5.
