James Jordan has reportedly been offered a mega-money deal to take part in 'Gold Stars Vs. New Stars' in January
James Jordan has reportedly been offered a "six figure deal" to take part in 'Celebrity Big Brother's forthcoming spin-off show.
The former 'Strictly Come Dancing' professional proved a huge hit with bosses in 2014 when he joined the house, ruffled a few feathers and locked horns with most of his fellow competitors.
And now producers are keen to sign him up to 'Gold Stars vs New Stars', which kicks off in January and will see old housemates take on new contestants, as they know he'll struggle to hold his tongue when put against other strong characters.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Channel 5 approached James with a six figure deal.
"The producers loved how feisty he was when he appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2014 and they know he won't hold back."
And bosses already have someone in mind - outspoken model Jasmine Lennard, who appeared on the show in 2012.
The insider explained: "Bringing in big personalities like James and Jasmine makes great TV and there could be a clash between the two of them."
However, although the cash is there, it's not yet known if the 38-year-old ballroom dancer will take Channel 5 up on their offer as his wife Ola Jordan will have only just returned from Australia.
The Polish beauty is currently taking part in 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' and could spend up to three weeks Down Under.
A source said recently: "Ola is a no-brainer of a signing. She's well-known, gorgeous and has strong opinions. Add difficult challenges and starvation to those qualities and she's sure to make great telly. Having a very vocal husband is an added bonus in the deal. James is not afraid to air his opinions and will make a great guest on the spin-off show while Ola is in camp."
