Steps star Claire Richards has been linked to Celebrity Big Brother 2013.

The singer has apparently agreed a deal that will see her follow in the footsteps of her bandmate Ian 'H' Watkins, who took part in the show back in 2007.

Claire is no stranger to reality telly, having had her own series as well as two Sky Living shows which followed Steps' recent reunion.

The X-year-old joins a growing list of rumoured celebrities, which includes The Hills stars Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag.

The husband and wife couple both previously appeared on MTV's The Hills for four years between 2006 and 2010, and have also competed together on the US version of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, along with Heidi's sister!

Other Celebrities lined up for the new series are said to include X Factor's Rylan Clark, glamour model Katie Price, singer Meat Loaf and model Lacey Banghard

Disgraced comedian Justin Lee Collins had also been linked to the upcoming show but has since denied any involvement, as has soap star Wendi Peters who said the show "wasn't for her".
