Celebrity Big Bother contestants include Romeo and Frankie Cocozza.
Is a Celebrity Big Brother contestant
Celebrity Big Brother kicked off in spectacular fashion last night (January 5th) with a decidedly musical feel.

Two of the contestants on this year's hit TV show include former So Solid Crew hard man and rapper extraordinaire Romeo and former X Factor contestant Frankie Cocozza.

Romeo, who first came to fame in the early noughties as part of the pioneering garage outfit So Solid Crew has been "off the radar" lately and is looking to boost his music career with a stint in the house.

Meanwhile, Cocozza, who was booted off the X Factor for his bad boy antics, is riding high on his 15 minutes of fame, while also looking to set the record straight about the behind the scenes bust-ups on the popular talent show.

It was rumoured that The Blackout's frontman Sean Smith was also going to appear on Celebrity Big Brother, but he was quick to deny it.

At first I thought it was stupid that I could possibly be thought of as being on Celebrity Big Brother when I'm not a celebrity," he told NME.

Other contestants include former EastEnders star Natalie Cassidy and Hollywood actor Michael Madsen.
