David Beckham for Celebrity Big Brother 2013?

Channel 5 - Big Brother 2012

David Beckham has been tipped to take part in Celebrity Big Brother 2013.

Because now he's not playing football, he must desperate, apparently.

The England footballer announced his retirement from the game this week, and bookies reckon a spot in the Big Brother house could be his next step.

Ladbrokes have shortened his odds of taking part in this year's series from 100-1 to 10-1, with one ballsy (or crazy) punter betting four figures on the footie star becoming a housemate.

Ladbrokes spokesman Alex Donohue said: “He would be the biggest favourite in BB history.”

A few of the bookies' more likely bets however include that Beckham will get a knighthood in the New Years Honours and he'll become a football team manager.

Meanwhile, back to Celebrity Big Brother, and the JLS boys have also been tipped to enter the house this summer after they announced their split.

The four piece - J.B. Gill, Marvin Humes, Aston Merrygold and Oritsé Williams - rose to fame in 2008 on The X Factor, and confirmed their tour and album this year would be their last.

But BB bosses face competition from rival reality series, including Strictly and I'm A Celebrity.
