'Celebrity Big Brother' bosses want to send couples into the house, with The Cheeky Girls and 'Too Fat To Work's Stephen Beer and his wife among those being considered for the new series
'Celebrity Big Brother' bosses want to send couples into the house.
Producers were happy with the success of Heidi and Spencer Pratt's two stints in the house, in 2013, and the recent All Stars series, and think it would be a great idea to fill the famous abode with twosomes when the show, which is hosted by Emma Willis, returns to screens in the summer.
A source told The Sun online: "It's seriously early for anything to be set in stone but bosses are working hard on the idea and talking to the couples about big money deals to firmly secure them for the series in the summer."
However, it isn't just couples in relationships that bosses will be considering for the new series as The Cheeky Girls - who shot to fame on 'Popstars: The Rivals' in 2002 - could follow in the footsteps of fellow twins Jedward and sign up for the show.
Other names in the frame include drug mules Michaella McCollum Connolly and Melissa Reid, who were freed from jail in Peru last year, and 'Too Fat To Work' star Stephen Beer and his wife Michelle.
Stephen has previously admitted he tried to apply to go on 'Big Brother' - but accidentally sent his video to producers on the US version of the show.
He said: "I was asked to fly over to the USA to meet the producers of 'Big Brother' US.
"I meant to apply for 'Big Brother' UK, but I sent the application video to the United States show by accident.
"They invited me to go over for an audition, but I couldn't get my visa in time - or a passport.
"I want to prove to everyone I'm not what they think I am."
It was claimed earlier this week that 'Geordie Shore' stars and on/off couple Charlotte Crosby and Stephen Bear - who have both won the show in the past - will be returning to the house together this summer.
