Colors TV show Bigg Boss have managed to grab eyeballs with its choice of celebrity contestants every season. From controversial figures to drama queens like Rakhi Sawant, from Wrestler Khali to adult movie star Sunny Leone, Hollywood stars to homosexuals and criminals, all have lived in the luxurious Bigg Boss villa and entertained the audience.

The shows fifth season had 12 women and only one man, Shakti Kapoor, in the beginning, while last year, the house was divided into the Christian concept of heaven and hell.

There are rumours that the show's eighth installment will be a couples-only season and will be all about love. According to a report in IndiaToday, there might even be a gay couple in the house!

Last year's big on-screen hookups Tanishaa-Armaan Kohli and Kushal Tandon-Gauahar Khan worked well for the show and the ratings soared, which lasted almost till the very end. And this year, "only couple" theme will surely keep the audience glued to the screen.

Minissha Lamba, Shweta Salve, Karishma Tanna and Mariam Zakaria are said to be confirmed. It is still not confirmed if their spouses/boyfriends will be participants.

Given the history of the show, there will be public display of affection on the small screen and it will be interesting to see how many new controversies the show will create, given that it is shifted to 11 pm slot from prime time due to 'adult content'.

Going by the rumours, the Bigg Boss 8 will feature Salman Khan's ex-girlfriend and Romanian model Lulia Vantur, South Indian star Hansika Motwani, actor Aloknath, actress Deepika Singh, and model Poonam Pandey.

The official cast list should be revealed sometime next week.

Salman Khan's Bigg Boss Season 8 will be aired on 21 September on Colors TV.
