Celebrity Big Brother 2013: Katie Price invited to take part in summer series

Katie Price

Katie Price was ditched from next month's Celebrity Big Brother 2013, but could take part in the summer.

The former glamour model was linked to the upcoming series earlier this year along with pal and former X Factor finalist Rylan Clark.

“Katie would be a massive coup for CBB and bosses are really keen to get her to sign on the dotted line,” a supposed insider claimed.

However, ‘taking to Twitter’, Katie insisted she wasn’t going in.

Katie tweeted: “I’m not doing big brother despite the rumours! But I wouldn’t say no hahahaha I have nothing to hide :)”

Now the Daily Mirror report that bosses have invited Katie onto the summer series, saying they didn't want both her and Rylan in the house together.

“Katie has always been at the top of the list of potential CBB housemates and she was a real candidate this series because her deal with Sky is up, a source told the newspaper. "Her exes Alex Reid and Dane Bowers were in one series together, and it made a great talking point – Alex even won the show.

“But, of course, she was going to be an expensive booking."

The source went on: “The idea of having Katie and Rylan seemed perfect. They promised late night karaoke sessions and lots of boozy antics.

“But the bosses had a re-think. They felt that their personalities were so similar, they might risk becoming a turn-off for viewers."

With Channel 5 now airing two Celebrity Big Brother series a year however, Katie will be back soon.

The source added: "Katie has been invited to take part in the summer edition.”
