SOCCER ace Kieran Richardson's gorgeous cousin will join a lap dancer, a political protester and a cleaner entering the Big Brother house tonight.

Charlie Richardson, 20, is one of 12 desperados plucked from obscurity.

But gobby Charlie, who lives in London's East End, already has several celebrity links.

As well as being the cousin of midfielder Kieran, 22 — who has been capped eight times by England — she is a close friend of David Beckham's little sister Joanne, 25.

And she is believed to have had a string of flings with top Premiership players.

But housemates had better watch out for her fiery temper after she was involved in a brawl at soccer star Jermaine Pennant's 24th birthday party in January.

Charlie was questioned by cops over a row with ex-BB housemate Saskia Howard-Clarke after two groups of girls attacked each other

Producers will keep a close eye on Charlie — who will use the alias "Danni". They want this year's show to be all about "fun" and "love" — and desperately want to distance the show from the nasty race rows during Celebrity Big Brother.
