Olivia Buckland wants to do 'Celebrity Big Brother' with her boyfriend Alex Bowen.
The 'Love Island' beauty - who met her beau while they were taking part in the reality TV show over the summer - has admitted she's opened to the idea of taking part in the Channel 5 programme next month but only if her hunky partner can join her.
Speaking to The Sun Online, she said: "I don't think that I'll ever be done (with reality TV), I'd never say never, you never know what's going to happen. I loved the experience of 'Love Island' and if I could do something similar with Alex then I don't think I could say no. If Alex came with me [into the 'CBB' house] I'd go for it."
And the 22-year-old star may just get her wish as bosses of the popular show are currently on the hunt for a batch of new celebrities to join previous contestants in the forthcoming 'Celebrity Big Brother' special series 'All Stars vs. New Stars'.
Details on the line up are being kept tightly under wraps but it's believed Jedward - the annoying twins Edward and John from 'The X Factor' - former 'Strictly Come Dancing' professional James Jordan, Lee Ryan, American couple Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt and Jasmine Lennard have agreed to return as the All Stars.
However, the New Stars category seems thin as the only celebrities tied to that list are former 'The Only Way is Essex' star Danielle Armstrong and Bianca Gascoigne.
A source said recently: "Danielle has a big personality and would be a great asset to the house. She's looking to branch out now her 'TOWIE' days are over and sees 'CBB' as a great way to do this. Her fellow 'TOWIE' stars have managed to get their own shows out their stint in the house - she wants to do likewise."
'Celebrity Big Brother' will return to screens on January 3 and bosses have promised it'll be "explosive" with a huge clash of personalities locked inside a house for three weeks.
