Union J star Jaymi Hensley is reportedly holding talks to appear in this summer's 'Celebrity Big Brother' special

Union J's Jaymi Hensley is in talks to sign up to 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

The 26-year-old singer and former 'X Factor' star was forced to turn down an offer to appear on the Channel 5 show last summer due to working on the boy band's new album, but is now reportedly holding discussions to enter the famous abode later this year for their second series of the 'All Stars and New Stars' special.

A source told the Mirror Online: "Jaymi is in talks to take part in the next series of 'Celebrity Big Brother' during the summer.

"He was originally meant to enter the house last summer but dropped out due to work commitments that had already been in the diary that he could not get off.

"Jaymi has been supporting the show throughout the series and has now been talking with Channel 5 bosses and loves the idea of appearing on the show.

"He knows he can share a lot of fun and drama in the house and give the viewers a good taste of him.

"One of Union J Jaymi has the best personality and has a real talent for TV."

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' - said: "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."
