Pete Wicks says he won't rule out appearing on Celebrity Big Brother.

Reality star Pete is best known for appearing in The Only Way Is Essex and his former relationship with Megan McKenna.


Megan appeared on Celebrity Big Brother on Channel 5 and there have been repeated rumours Pete could follow in her footsteps.

Last year a source claimed: “Pete has already said he needs a break from [TOWIE] and seeing as this is going to be a big money deal it’s looking like a no-brainer.”

They added: “Celebrity Big Brother launched Megan’s career so Pete knows it could take him to the next level and boost his profile, while giving him a much-need break from Towie stress.”

Pete also put himself forward for E4's Celebs Go Dating, saying: “I’d definitely like to do Celebs Go Dating but there are other TV shows I’m lined up for too.”

In an interview with OK! magazine this week, Pete was coy about the CBB rumours and said he wouldn't rule it out.

However he said he wouldn't ever take part in Strictly, and was more hopeful of getting an offer from I'm A Celebrity.

"The only think I'd rule out is Strictly - I can't dance," Pete said. "I'd love the jungle."

Meanwhile, Pete also addressed rumours he was dating Love Island's Amber Davies following her split from Kem Cetinay.

"We're just friends," he insisted.


The new series of Celebrity Big Brother 2018 will air in the summer.

It could well be the last ever, with Channel 5 yet to confirm if they'll be renewing the show beyond the end of the year.
