'Celebrity Big Brother' All Star and New Star special is set for a second series this summer, and 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Bobby Norris is already in talks for the follow up
'Celebrity Big Brother' All Stars and New Stars is set for a second series.
The drama-filled Channel 5 programme launched its debut special earlier this month, which saw a return of a number of previous contestants battle it out to be crowned champion against new additions for the first time ever, has proved to be a hit with viewers and bosses are already planning another installment for the summer.
Although producers were keen to keep the second series under wraps for the time being, Bobby Norris accidentally let it slip when he admitted he'd had a "little meeting" with producers to appear in a follow-up show in August.
The 30-year-old television personality - who is known for starring in the popular ITVBe show 'The Only Way is Essex' - told The Sun Online: "I've watched it literally since series one day one, and I'm on [the spin-off] BOTS ['Big Brother's Bit on the Side'] most series to be fair and I think I'd quite fancy the challenge of doing it, because I'm such a fan of the show. I might have had a little meeting! I have had a conversation about it in the past."
And the dark-haired reality star has admitted watching Rylan Clark-Neal's rise to fame after coming fifth place on 'The X Factor' in 2012 has encouraged him to follow in his footsteps, as did Brian Belo, who won the eighth series of 'Big Brother'.
He explained when asked if he wants to try his hand at presenting: "Rylan and Brian are both massive fans and that's like the scary thing, to think that they've changed things and they've gone in as massive fans. Never say never."
Aside from gaining more fans from appearing on the programme, Bobby is keen to spend the summer basking in the rays of the English summer sun in the house.
He said: "I've got to do the summer one as well, because you've got the garden and you can have a cheeky sunbathe. I can take my Marbella mermaid tail, can you imagine me just flipping around in the hot tub. Summer is the way forward. Well I'm going to try and get into the summer one."
