Katie Price ‘considering’ Celebrity Big Brother offer
Glamour model Katie Price is reportedly set to follow in the footsteps of ex-boyfriend Alex Reid by entering the Celebrity Big Brother house.
The Sun claims that Channel 5 bosses offered her a place in the house in either January’s new series, or the next summer run in August, which follows the civilian version.
The 34-year-old – also known as Jordan – is now free to take part after her exclusive television deal with Sky Living ended earlier this year.
She could end up being housemates with The X Factor’s Rylan Clark – whom she became friends with after he competed in Signed By Katie Price – as he has also been approached.
However, Katie would face the prospect of not matching the success of Alex, who was crowned the winner of Channel 4’s last series of CBB in 2010.
An ‘insider’ told the newspaper: “Signing up Katie would be a massive coup for CBB and bosses are really keen to get her to sign on the dotted line. They have given her the option of going in the new series or the one in the summer.
They added: “Producers have also approached Rylan and the pair of them in the house together would be hilarious. But there would be pressure on Katie to win as she wouldn’t want to play second fiddle to Alex who won in 2010.”
Katie made a brief appearance on last year’s normal Big Brother, during the Paranormal Activity 3 premiere. She has also previously featured in two series of I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! and several editions of her own reality show on ITV2 and Sky.
The icy new eye logo for January’s Celeb BB was unveiled yesterday.
