Celebrity Big Brother kicked off last night with its first ever all-female launch to mark 100 years since women won the right to vote in the UK. However there will be male housemates added into the mix this Friday, and according to The Sun, Boyzone's Shane Lynch will be one of them.

The Dublin-born singer is expected to join the show alongside former Liverpool footballer John Barnes and Love Island’s Jonny Mitchell.

Shane's sister and Bewitched singer Edele Lynch previously took part in the show back in 2014.

The 41-year-old is married to former backing singer Sheena White, with whom he has two daughters Billie Rae and Marley Mae. Shane has spoken before about becoming a born-again Christian in 2003 and how finding God changed his life.

He has previously appeared in the second season of Love Island (the 2005 series), and in Sky One's Cirque De Celebrite.
