Austin Armacost has come up with a reality show format which will see him take his 'Celebrity Big Brother friend James Hill back to the US and make him live the life of a American "country boy"
Austin Armacost wants to take James Hill to America and turn him into a "country boy" for a new reality TV show.
The hunky star became great pals with James while they were on 'Celebrity Big Brother' together and their friendship is going from strength-to-strength since they left the house.
And Austin - who was raised in Indiana and now lives in Huddersfield in the US - has come up with a great idea for a programme which would see Brit James, who is from Chesterfield, live off the land in the States.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the Attitude Awards in London on Wednesday night (14.10.15), Austin said: "I think James coming to America and seeing the way I live would be a complete shock to him. I would make him change - no hair products, no tanning creams! I want to make him a little country boy, show him the country style..."
James is definitely up for making a reality show with his pal Austin and says they've already had discussions about shooting something as a pair.
The 'CBB' winner revealed: "It's got to happen, the fans have given us a driving force. We're in talks with various companies, so there are various new opportunities on the horizon."
Although they have been virtually inseparable since 'Big Brother' ended, the guys have also stayed in touch with some of their other housemates - but not Farrah Abraham and Jenna Jameson.
James said: "I've kept in touch with Bobby Davro and Fatman Scoop, I've exchanged a few messages with Stevi (Ritchie) and Chloe (Jasmine) but realistically it's been all about me and Austin - we've kept that bromance up haven't we? Since we've come out it its been a whirlwind, we've not had five minutes. Eventually, when it calms down, we can catch up with the former housemates because there were some nice people in there."
James and Austin were joined by a host of other stars at the glitzy event, including Boy George, Antony Cotton, Lorraine Kelly and Adam Lambert.
