Snoop Dogg and Tim Westwood have been approached to star in the upcoming series of 'Celebrity Big Brother'
Snoop Dogg is being lined up to star in 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The 'Sweat' rapper has been approached alongside hip hop radio DJ Tim Westwood as potential housemates for the upcoming celebrity version of the show, which will be broadcast on Channel 5 later this year.
Bosses are said to be keen to sign Snoop as he has led a colourful life, with him jailed for cocaine possession before graduating high school, and then going on to become one of the world's biggest rap stars.
Writing on twitter yesterday (23.05.11), Tim said: "They asked me to do Ch5 Celebrity Big Brother (sic).
"Snoop said they talkin' to him. If he goes in - I'm goin' in! It'll be the Dawg House (sic)!"
Tim - who is a well respected figure in the hip hop community and a close friend to many rappers - has previously been approached to appear on 'Celebrity Big Brother' when it was on Channel 4.
ITV bosses are also keen for him to take part on 'Dancing On Ice', although he was less enthusiastic about the celebrity skating show.
He said: "Been offered £50,000 to go on 'Dancing On Ice' - could you see me wearing sequinned outfits!
"Why is everyone saying I should do it? I'd have to dance on ice with a woman who looks like a man in drag."
