"Bigg Boss 8" will see the entry of some old contestants in the extended version. Ex-contestants Rahul Mahajan, Imam Siddique, Dolly Bindra, and Ajaz Khan among others will reportedly enter the reality show as wild card entries.

The show, which was supposed to end in January, has now been extended for a month. And to keep the TRPs on top, the makers have roped in ex-contestants who made headlines when they were a part of the previous seasons.

But disappointing their fans, the makers have cast Farah Khan as the host for the extended version. "Weekend Ka Vaar" has been hosted by Salman Khan, but after January Farah will replace him.

While, several viewers are disappointed with the extension and Farah replacing their favourite host Salman, some viewers are excited to see the ex-contestants back in the show.

Viewers are curious to know when the contestants will enter the house and if reports are to be believed, the new contestants will enter in January.

According to Kamaal R Khan's website, the contestants will enter the "Bigg Boss" house on 3 January. The website also revealed the name of all the contestants who will be a part of the show since January.

Imam, Dolly, Ajaz and Rahul's names have been doing the rounds for a while and Sambhavna Seth and Mahek Chahel's names have been revealed recently.

"The makers have approached some of the ex-contestants; especially who had created lot of buzz in the house. This list includes names like Rahul Mahajan, Sambhavna Seth, Dolly Bindra, Imam Siddique and Ajaz Khan. Rahul is almost been finalized; the final dots are yet to be signed. Talks are still going on with the other contestants," Daily Bhaskar quoted a source as saying.
