Celebrity Big Brother 2013: Wendi Peters denies rumours

Brian Dowling

Corrie star Wendi Peters has denied rumours suggesting she'll be entering the Celebrity Big Brother 2013 house.

It was reported recently that the actress was being lined up to take part in the new series with her on screen husband Bruce Jones.

The pair are perhaps better known as their characters Les and Cilla Battersby in the ITV1 soap.

The acting duo both quit the show back in 2007, but Celeb Big Bro bosses were apparently hoping to reunite them in the Celeb Big Bro host.

The Daily Mirror claimed last week that producers offered both Bruce and Wendi “big money deals” to take part in the new series next month.

A TV source told the newspaper: “If they sign up, it will be a real coup as there are at least 10 million Corrie fanatics out there who will immediately be interested in watching.”

However actress Wendi denied any involvement in the show, saying that the reality series "wasn't for her".

Other stars linked to the new series include X Factor's Rylan Clark, Page 3 model Lacey Banghard and comic Justin Lee Collins.
