Boxer Tyson Fury has hinted he could be taking part in Celebrity Big Brother 2013.

The Heavyweight sportsman revealed this week that he had been approached by producers previously, and felt the show would be a good way to show viewers his "softer side".

After David Haye's success in the I'm A Celebrity jungle, it could definitely improve his career!

The 24-year-old told the Manchester Evening News: "I was supposed to go into Big Brother before, but I’m a boxer – not a celebrity. I like to see myself as a boxer.”

But hinting that he may be taking part in the new series next month, he continued: “It would be a good idea to see the other side of me.

“People who do know me know that I’m not a bad guy. It could be a good idea if there is an opportunity to go on in January."

Tyson said: “They’d purposely put people in there to annoy me and mess me around – it would be either make or break. But if I ever do go in, it would be entertaining.”

Other stars rumoured to be taking part in next year's show include Corrie stars Bruce Jones and Wendi Peters, '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.
