The first confirmed Celebrity Big Brother contestant is an absolute legend

We can't wait for the show to start now!

When Sandra Martin announced that she was leaving Gogglebox, we were more than a little upset because her one-liners were just hilarious.

However, with the news that she's set to join the latest series of Celebrity Big Brother, we're going to see a lot of more of her on our TV screens.

The series will start with an all-female cast to mark 100 years since women won the right to vote in Britain before the male contestants later enter the CBB house.

Sandra's former Gogglebox partner Sandi Bogle was a big hit when she took part in this year's CBB and this is said to have inspired Sandra to try her hand at the popular reality show.

A source told The Sun:

"Sandra is heading into the house - she's heard a lot about it from Sandi and after Sandi's success on the show, she wants to try it out herself.

"She's outgoing, not afraid to speak her mind and wants to grow her profile, so she'll be great in the house. Sandi told her it's one of the best things she's ever done".

The show kicks off on Tuesday, January 2 at 9 pm and it's sure to be a welcome distraction from any post-Christmas blues.
