Openly gay Welsh rugby star Gareth Thomas is the latest name in the list of stars to be entering the Big Brother house.
Daily Mail UK reports:
Former rugby international Gareth Thomas has signed up to star on Celebrity Big Brother.
The popular sportsman, who is a close friend of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and attended their wedding, will appear on the Channel 5 reality show which starts tonight.
He will join such luminaries as Natasha Giggs, whose only claim to fame is having an affair with her footballer star brother-in-law Ryan Giggs. Ironically, Mr Thomas is friends with Manchester United winger Giggs.
Mr Thomas, 37, who had been married to his teenage sweetheart Jemma, announced he was gay in December 2009, breaking one of the major taboos in sport.
