Jim Davidson has revealed that he's in talks with Channel 5 to bring back his '90s game show 'Big Break'
Jim Davidson is in talks to relaunch his '90s game show 'Big Break'.
The 60-year-old comedian could be set to bring back the Saturday night snooker-themed series nearly 12 years after it first went off the air in 2002, but instead of returning to BBC One it could move to Channel 5 following his 'Celebrity Big Brother' victory in January.
He told The Sun newspaper: "Channel 5 are keen to work with me and build on the success of 'Big Brother'. We are discussing a couple of formats. The favourite is 'Big Break' and I'd be up for that."
Jim has also hinted that he'd like to continue his run on reality television with a stint in the 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' jungle.
Taking to his Twitter account, he wrote: "Think I'll go for the double and do the jungle! What d'yer think? (sic)"
The former 'Generation Game' host could follow in the footsteps of Westlife's Kian Egan and McFly's Dougie Poynter by being crowned King of the Jungle if he signs up to take part later this year.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "It seems Jim has got a taste for reality TV.
"Sitting around in a house is one thing but roughing it in the jungle is a different challenge.
"It would certainly be interesting to see how he copes and whether he could ruffle a few feathers in the camp."
