Daniel O'Reilly - 'Dapper Laughs'
The Daily Star has reported that comic Dapper Laughs could be a housemate on the next Celebrity Big Brother
Dapper Laughs whose real name is Daniel O'Reilly became known through social networking sites such as Vine, before getting a TV show, Dapper Laughs: On the Pull, on ITV2. His show was later cancelled by ITV after footage emerged of him joking about sexual assault. Daniel O'Reilly later did an interview on Newsnight about the controversy.
'Source' quoted in Daily Star about Celebrity Big Brother: "Dapper is still one of the most controversial performers in the UK and will get viewers watching,"
"No doubt he is keen to try and show that his off-stage persona is sensitive and caring.
"But his signing is bound to anger the campaigners who called for a boycott of his shows.
"He will have to work very hard to win them around."
He was previously rumoured to be going into last summer's Celebrity Big Brother.
The next series of CBB will start in January 2016 on Channel 5.
