I`ve turned down `Celebrity Big Brother`: James Arthur

London: Singer James Arthur has ruled himself out of the next series of `Celebrity Big Brother`.

The `Impossible` hitmaker tweeted that he was offered a spot on the reality show, but turned it down, reportedly.

Responding to an article suggesting that he might appear, he wrote, "Rule me out of that I am not doing CBB. I`m a big fan but I have turned down an offer from them."

The new series of `Celebrity Big Brother` will begin after the current `civilian` version has ended, with rumoured contestants including George Gilbey from Gogglebox, Misfits actress Lauren Socha, Eurovision champion Conchita Wurst and Benefits Street`s White Dee.

Ronan Keating has also ruled himself out of the Channel 5 programme, saying, "Please know I am not in talks with anyone regarding this. Nor will I be."
