Darts legend Eric Bristow has said he wants to enter Celebrity Big Brother.

The sports star previously appeared on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here in 2012 and has admitted to turning down offers from other reality shows including Strictly Come Dancing.

But it's an invitation from Channel 5's Big Brother bosses that Eric is currently after.

"They invite me to do all sorts of things," he said this weekend. “I get asked if I want to go on to that Strictly dancing show every year but it doesn’t interest me. It’s not for me.

“I’m retired and I’m not skint so I don’t need to go doing these things for the sake of it. The jungle to me was a challenge.”

Speaking to the Daily Star on Sunday, Eric revealed: "I would like to have a go at that Big Brother. But you get a lot of dips in there."

However it sounds like the thought of being stuck in a house with someone like Perez Hilton may hold Eric back.

"You just don’t know until you meet these people how you will get on with them," he confessed.

Although the 57-year-old went on to add: “When you’re locked away in a jungle or in a house for weeks you’ve just got to get on and that’s it."

CBB will return to Channel 5 in August.
