Big Brother 2017: 'Too Fat To Work' duo to enter the house this summer?

Steve Beer

Stephen and Michelle Beer have reportedly auditioning for Big Brother 2017.

This summer's Big Brother saw Channel 5 invite only pairs to apply for the series in what's expected to be a brand new twist to the format.

According to the Daily Star newspaper, one of the pairs who applied - and were invited to audition for producers - were the 'stars' of a benefits documentary Stephen and Michelle Beer.

The couple previously appeared on Channel 5 show Too Fat To Work and apparently went for a callback at auditions last month.

Steve was previously rumoured for Big Brother back in 2015 after his first appearance on Benefits Britain.

Having slimmed from 31 stone to 25 stone, he hoped that entering Britain's most famous house would show the public he's a changed man.

Steve wasn't picked for the 'Timebomb' series but that didn't deter his hopes of joining the cast and again applied last year... sort of.

The 45-year-old told The Sun in 2016 that he had to turn down a meeting with Big Brother USA producers after mistakenly sending his audition video to them instead of BBUK's bosses.

"I was asked to fly over to the USA to meet the producers of Big Brother US. I meant to apply for Big Brother UK, but I sent the application video to the United States show by accident," Steve explained.

"They invited me to go over for an audition, but I couldn't get my visa in time - or a passport. I'd like to do the English one instead."

Meanwhile, other duos rumoured for the BBUK summer cast this year include Kim Kardashian wannabe Janey Christina Farrell and her twin sister, The Cheeky Girls, model sisters Carla Howe and Melissa Howe and prankster pals Dean Salmon and Adam Parkinson.

Big Brother 2017 will air on Channel 5.
