Strictly Come Dancing's Nikita Kuzmin 'joins Celebrity Big Brother lineup'

Strictly Come Dancing's Nikita Kuzmin 'joins Celebrity Big Brother lineup'
Strictly Come Dancing pro Nikita Kuzmin reportedly signs a deal to appear on Celebrity Big Brother.

Strictly Come Dancing pro Nikita Kuzmin has reportedly joined the lineup for Celebrity Big Brother.

The 26-year-old Ukrainian-born dancer has been on the BBC dance contest for the last three years, most recently finishing as a runner-up with celeb partner Layton Williams.

According to The Sun, Kuzmin has now signed a deal to join the likes of Fern Britton, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne in the CBB house - although in doing so he risks the ire of producers on the BBC show.

A source told the newspaper: "This will send the rumour mill into overdrive, with some already suggesting he may not return to Strictly and is instead making the most of being a rising star.

"He'll have been selected by CBB producers as an obvious heartthrob who can spice things up in the house — and maybe even spill some secrets from behind the scenes of Strictly."

Celebrity Big Brother launches this Monday at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
