Big Brother bosses have reportedly been scouting for possible housemates on Facebook.

The new series of the show begins on Channel 5 in the summer and show bosses have been hunting down the perfect cast.


As well was going through applications sent to them, producers have been headhunting potential housemates.

They include 'reality star' Grant Coulson, who previously appeared on TLC's dating show Undressed.

In a chat with the Daily Star, Grant claimed he had been "hounded" to take part in this year's BBUK.

"I was approached on Facebook. I was literally getting hounded with messages by producers asking me to apply to the show," he alleged.

Grant told the newspaper: "About three people from the team messaged me at the same time. They’d noticed me from my previous TV shows and I was in the newspapers for stuff as well. They really wanted me.

"I didn't have to go through the 'normal' process, I didn't have to fill out an application form or anything like that."

This year's Big Brother has a pairs theme and Grant revealed he is hoping to enter the house in June with pal Kirsty Hogg.

He claimed: "The Big Brother team told me I've done really well to get this far and that I'm in the final few."


Although no doubt speaking to the press about it won't do him any favours...

Big Brother will air on Channel 5 this summer.
