Rylan Clark-Neal has reportedly agreed to temporarily return to 'Celebrity Big Brother' next week
Rylan Clark-Neal will return to 'Celebrity Big Brother' next month - as a contestant.
The 28-year-old presenter may have other duties now that he's the host of the show's spin-off 'Big Brother's Bit on the Side' but bosses have agreed to let him move back into the iconic bungalow temporarily next week for the 'All Stars vs. New Stars' special in a bid to "settle scores" with reality TV couple Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt after they locked horns when they all stayed in the house in 2013.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Producers are planning a brilliant task that will involve Rylan moving back into the house. Rylan did not get on well with Heidi and Spencer and there are scores to be settled."
Rylan - who won series 11 three years ago - is expected to earn a "small fee" for his unexpected return, while Heidi and Spencer, who are known collectively as 'Speidi', have penned a six-figure deal to move back into the house for three weeks.
A source explained: "Spencer and Heidi are very competitive and they got so close to winning last time that they're hell bent on coming out on top this time around.
"They've never quite lived down being beaten by Rylan. Last time they were not sure what to expect, but they've become big fans of the show since their stint in the house. And they're sure they've devised the secret strategy that will see them win."
The 'All Stars vs. New Stars' special will see a chosen few celebrities from previous series return and go up against a new bunch of fresh-faced contestants.
Lee Ryan, Katie Hopkins, Jasmine Lennard and former 'Strictly Come Dancing' professional James Jordan, who have all appeared in the flamboyant abode in previous years, and newbies Bianca Gascoigne and Danielle Armstrong are set to join this year's special when it returns to screens on January 3 on Channel 5.
