Ben Jardine’s ex could make a shock appearance on Celebrity Big Brother 2018, it’s been claimed.
Ben and Stephanie Jardine got married on Channel 4’s Married At First Sight this year.
The show sees strangers marry on first meeting, before following them in the six weeks after their wedding.
To the shock of absolutely no one, it didn’t work out for the couples including Ben and Steph.
Although still currently married, the pair have announced they are to get a divorce.
Now its been reported that Stephanie may join Ben on the Celebrity Big Brother house.
“Stephanie got herself an agent and approached CBB producers to go in the house as soon as she found out Ben was going in,” a source claimed this week.
They alleged to The Sun newspaper: “She is out to get him just because he couldn’t make himself love her.”
“Ben moved on with his life last year after realising things weren’t working. He just wishes she would, too. After all, it was just a TV experiment that despite their best efforts, sadly didn’t work.”
Stephanie could replace porn star Stormy Daniels who pulled out of the show just hours before launch night.
Big Brother tweeted on Friday: “Stormy Daniels was booked to appear on the show several months ago and hours before the show was due to go live, informed the production team that she no longer wished to enter the house as previously agreed.
“Producers discussed a variety of options with her but were unable to agree any acceptable conditions for her entering the house. Our focus is now on making a brilliant series with our fantastic celebrities.”
During an interview on ITV’s Loose Women, Stormy said her decision to back out was down to an ongoing custody battle involving her daughter.
“Being a mum comes first,” Stormy said, “and I wanted to be able to talk to her with everything going on.”
Last Friday, appearing on Bit On The Side, Rylan gave Big Brother’s side of events.
He said: “Big Brother was thrilled and excited for Stormy’s potential for the house.
“But 5 hours before the live shows, Stormy informed us she wished to simply appear on launch night and leave. Big Brother tried to work out a fair compromise with her but for Big Brother, launch night is about moving into the house and not celebrities moving out.”
For now, Celebrity Big Brother 2018 continues nightly on Channel 5.
The show continues Wednesday evening at 9PM.
