Nikki Grahame is reportedly in talks to return to 'Celebrity Big Brother' with her pal Brian Dowling for the upcoming 'couples' series
Nikki Grahame is reportedly in talks to return to 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The 34-year-old model rose to fame when she appeared on the popular reality show in 2006, where her temper tantrums made her a household name and eventually led to her being given her own reality show 'Princess Nikki' later that year.
After returning to the show for 'Ultimate Big Brother' in 2010 - where she finished as the runner up behind winner Brian Dowling - and again as a Time Warp housemate in 2015, Nikki has now revealed the producers of the celebrity version of the show are working on getting her back in again for the special 'couples' series which will see contestants head into the house in pairs.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Nikki said: "I love doing Big Brother - I will never tire of that show. I think the couple thing is a fantastic new twist.
"If I go back in, in a couple, I would have to be paired up with Brian Dowling. I would force him to share a bed with me."
"If not Brian, it would have to be my ghetto girl Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace. The producers are on it - they love new twists every series."
The search for couples for the upcoming series of the show comes as the 'Celebrity Big Brother' bosses 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 said: "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.
