Now here’s something we bet you weren’t expecting!  Outkast’s very own Big Boi has reportedly signed up for this year’s Celebrity Big Brother.

The Sun has reported that that the rapper whose real name is Antwan Patton, has signed up for a £300,000 deal and that bosses are expecting big things from the musician. A source said:

Producers always like to mix things up with an American star and they hope Big Boi will do the business this year.

Celebrities like Sophie Anderton, Abs from 5ive and Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown are also being tipped for the 12th series which begins in August.

We’ve got to hand it to the CBB chiefs, if this is true it’s looking like this going to be great TV!
