Celebrity Big Brother's Bear tipped to return for 'all star' series next year

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Stephen Bear is already being tipped to return to Celebrity Big Brother next summer for an all stars twist.

The long running reality series will be celebrating its 20th run in 2017 and show bosses are reportedly planning to bring back some of the 'best' housemates.

But it won't be as straight forward as just featuring a group from past line ups, with new stars in the mix too.

It's been claimed that the new twist would see 'All Stars' v 'New Stars' going head to head.

And Bear is one of those that could be returning.

Other names on a supposed 'wish list' are professional troll Katie Hopkins, model and Loose Women star Katie Price, US couple Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag. and even names from the Channel 4 era including Pete Burns.

A source told the Daily Star : “It’s a genius idea that has never been done before.

Channel 5 wants to do a show that gives a nod to the past but also has a fresh edge with new people too."

They added: “Channel 5 wants to do a show that gives a nod to the past but also has a fresh edge with new people too."

It's said the move will be made in a bid to boost ratings for the series which this summer averaged barely 2 million viewers.

It was the second least watched of the 18 series to date, below only last year's record low.
