Brian Belo and Brian Dowling for Celebrity Big Brother 2017 All Stars line up?

Brian Dowling

We could see two Brians back in the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 house next month.

Former winners Brian Belo and Brian Dowling are being tipped to make a return for the show's All Star series.

Brian won both the second series of the show and the previous All Stars series in 2010 before going on to host the programme when it first moved to Channel 5.

But would he return as a housemate again?

Meanwhile, Brian Belo won Big Brother 8 and also returned to the show in 2015 as part of a Time Bomb twist.

However his second stint ended on a sour note, leaving the house following rows with Helen Wood.

Brian complained about the show earlier this year: “Everyone I’ve spoken to on the show has had issues with anxiety when leaving [...] We need to be properly looked after. I’ve been massively effected since. It’s been the hardest year of my life.”

Nevertheless, bookies price Brian Dowling and Brian Belo at odds of 7/2 and 7/1 respectively to join the line up in January.

Channel 5 previously announced a brand new twist to the next CBB series with a mix of former housemates as well as new celebrity faces on the line up.

"This time we’ve invited back some of your favourite CBB housemates: the All Stars who will be joined by a bunch of brand new celebrity housemates: the New Stars," the channel explained earlier in the month "Together they’ll be living in the Big Brother house which has been given a colourful pop art makeover."

They added: "As always the identities of the housemates are top secret, but we can confirm that this series promises to be an explosion of fun and loud personalities which are sure to cause fireworks… in fact, everything you love about Celebrity Big Brother!"

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 All Stars will launch at 9PM, Channel 5 on Tuesday, January 3.
