Disgraced comedian Justin Lee Collins has been offered £100,000 for Celebrity Big Brother 2013.

The former Friday Night Project host was found guilty of harassing his ex-girlfriend Anna Lark earlier this year.

Judges sentenced Justin to 140 hours of unpaid work after harassing Anna with distressing phone calls.

But now Justin wants to show viewers "the real him" and get his career back on track.

We're not really sure Celebrity Big Brother is the best place to do that...

The Daily Mirror reports that Channel 5 bosses have offered the comic a deal worth £100,000 to appear in the series, which starts in January.

An apparent Channel 5 source told the newspaper: “He has done wrong but he has done his community service and going on the show could be the break he needs.

"People will be able to see him 24/7 and see what he is really like and then make up their minds if he has changed.”

Other stars rumoured to be taking part in next year's show include Katie Price, 'Bat Out Of Hell' singer Meat Loaf and former MP John Prescott.

Recently axed X Factor contestant Rylan Clark has also been linked to the upcoming series, although he is committed to the talent contest's live tour, which begins at the end of January.
