Gogglebox pair wanted for Celebrity Big Brother summer line up

Chris Steed and Stephen Webb

Gogglebox's Chris Steed and Stephen Webb have been tipped to join the Celebrity Big Brother 2016 line up this summer.

The pair, who began starring on Gogglebox as a couple but later split, could apparently enjoyed £250,000 each to join the cast.

The now best friends wouldn't be the first stars of the Channel 4 show to end up on CBB with George Gilbey having previously appeared back in the summer of 2014.

According to The Sun newspaper, Big Brother's producers are "really keen to get them on".

"[They] would be happy to pay up to £500,000 to see it happen," a source told the tabloid. “Everyone’s really excited at the prospect because they are so dynamic and they already know they make great TV.

"They're fan favourites and their dry humour is bound to be hilarious in the house.”

While those rumours certainly seem plausible, some less believable ones have turned out to in fact be... total rubbish.

Claims that Peru Two’s Michaella McCollum - famous for, er, being convicted of drug smuggling in South America - could be a housemate really were as ridiculous as they sounded.

Channel 5 boss Ben Frow is quoted as telling The Sun newspaper: "I wouldn’t have thought so, Michaella has had no impact here at all."

The summer series of Celebrity Big Brother is expected to begin around August time, just after the new series of Big Brother which is rumoued to start in June this year.
