Courtney Act is reportedly in talks to get her very own chat show on UK TV.

It was Aussie drag star Shane Jenek / Courtney who won Celebrity Big Brother 2018 this year, beating Ann Widdecombe in the final vote.

Courtney is now set to return to UK telly, but not on Channel 5.

Instead, The Sun newspaper says that Channel 4 are lining her up to host a new chat show programme, potentially called 'Up Late and Courtney Act'

“Channel 4 spotted Courtney’s talent while she was on Celebrity Big Brother and they love her personality," a source told the tabloid today. “The chat show will be a late night variety programme with a mixture of cabaret, comedy and guest stars.

“At the moment it’s in development but Courtney’s quietly hopeful it will see the light of day.”

Last month saw Courtney open up about her Celebrity Big Brother victory - and beating Ann.

"I never thought that I was going to win," she confessed in a chat to Attitude magazine. "Not that I thought I should win, because I thought a woman should win Year of the Woman… But given what I think women are about in 2018, I don't reckon Ann represents that."

Courtney continued: "Not that I am a woman, but I am a feminist… Brexit happened. Donald Trump is president.

"If Ann Widdecombe won CBB Year of the Woman, it would be the third sign of the Apocalypse. We'd be sitting here waiting for the fourth, thinking maybe Ann's God does exist and is coming for the judgment day!"

As for Ann, she also had her say on the results from earlier this year.

Taking aim at the winner, Ann told The Telegraph last month: "Shane was tiresomely one-dimensional. All he ever wanted to talk about was being gay and gay rights.

Celebrity Big Brother will return to Channel 5 in the summer.
