Popstar to Operastar winner Joe McElderry has spoken out to rubbish rumours that he is to join this year's Celebrity Big Brother.
The former X Factor champ had been rumoured to have been considering joining the show on Channel 5 and was partly responsible for starting the speculation.
He recently told his followers on the social networking platform twitter that he had a "special announcement" to make.
Joe tweeted: "Okay guys!! Very exciting!! Keep your eyes open for a tour announcement coming very soon!!"
He later added: "Few people asking, am I going on Big Brother. Most certainly not. Ha ha!"
Meanwhile, Pamela Anderson is said to be "on the brink" of signing up to join the new series of Celebrity Big Brother.
The former Baywatch babe has been linked to the show over the last few years and has also been a contestant on the Australian version of the show.
Sources told the Daily Star that the 44-year-old is seriously considering joining the new series on Channel 5 later this month.
She is quoted as saying: "I am very excited about the show.
"I will just be myself and have fun with the contestants in the house."
The source added: "The time is right for Pamela and she's going to be a TV treat for BB fans."
