Stephen Bear rumoured (again) for Celebrity Big Brother return this summer

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Stephen Bear is once again being rumoured for a return to Celebrity Big Brother this summer.

Bear, who won last summer's series, has been tipped to reappear in the house again as part of a new All Stars twist.

He says that Big Brother bosses previously asked him to join the line up for January's run, but he had already signed up to E4's Celebs Go Dating.

So, according to The Sun, producers have invited Bear to take part in the summer show instead.

“Of course I’ll do the show again," Bear is quoted as telling the newspaper.

He added: “They asked me in January and they’re probably going to ask me again this summer.

“This year they asked me last minute – I was already doing Celebs Go Dating.”

It was rumoured previously that show bosses are looking at potential famous duos to enter the house this summer in a new twist to the format.

"It’s seriously early for anything to be set in stone but bosses are working hard on the idea and talking to the couples about big money deals to firmly secure them for the series in the summer," a source told The Sun.

Alongside Bear, his girlfriend and fellow former CBB winner Charlotte Crosby is also rumoured.

Charlotte previously said she'd be up for it - but only if she and bear were separate housemates.

"It would prove that I would beat him if we were separate housemates," Charlotte claimed.

Celebrity Big Brother airs on Channel 5 this summer.
