TOWIE couple 'sign up' to Celebrity Big Brother? Apparently not...

The Only Way Is Essex lovebirds Kate Wright and Dan Edgar have reportedly signed up for this summer's Celebrity Big Brother, or is it just a silly April Fool's joke?

The pair are said to be the latest celebrity couple to take part in the series, following in the footsteps of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt and Stevi Ritchie and Chloe Jasmine.

Kate and Dan briefly split up last year but claim that the separation has made them 'stronger than ever'.

It's fair to say if they take part in the show, Celebrity Big Brother will put that idea to the ultimate test.

"Kate and Dan have been really popular on TOWIE and people will only love them more when they get this exposure," a source told OK! Magazine (via the Daily Star) last month.

The insider claimed: "They have so much more to give and both Dan and Kate are really excited about the opportunity.

"They want to keep their big news quiet for now until this series of TOWIE finishes and then they can focus on the next steps in their career.”

The new series of Celebrity Big Brother isn't expected to air on Channel 5 until at least August or September so there's still AGGES to go, but we don't think it's surprising that producers could be thinking about casting already.

However apparently this is all an 'hilarious' April Fool's Day prank.

Whatever, we can still totally believe it could end up being true.

Other names tentatively linked to this summer's CBB include X Factor's Lauren Murray and viral road rager Ronnie Pickering.

However ITV chat show host Jeremy Kyle has ruled himself out of taking part.
