According to the Daily Star, insiders are hoping that Holly Henderson, who is a second cousin of Wayne Rooney, will have a similar appeal to Natasha Giggs in the last series.
The 33-year-old model is alleged to have secretly dated the famously eccentric Balotelli while he was involved with long-term Italian girlfriend Raffaella Fico. It has been claimed that he proposed marriage to Henderson.
A show source said: "Holly won't think twice about stripping off in the hot tub and her antics would make Denise Welch look like a nun.
"She also has plenty of secrets to spill."
Henderson today (May 4) retweeted the message: "Holly henderson who opened her legs for balotelli is being lined up for celeb big brother r they being serious how the f**k is she a celeb! (sic)"
She followed the tweet with a prediction: "Suppose today will be another day of jealous haters on here an to my kids!!! Such a sad word full of bullies!"
Henderson will star in Channel 4 documentary Sex, Lies And Rinsing Guys on May 15, a programme about girls who use their charms to profit from men.
