Nadine Coyle in talks for Celebrity Big Brother 2012?!

Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle has reportedly been approached by Channel 5 to appear on Celebrity Big Brother 2012.

While her former bandmate Cheryl Cole debuts the first single from a new album, Nadine's solo career is set to take a less glamorous turn.

The Daily Mail reports that the Irish singer could end up spending the summer in North London, hanging out with the likes of Lee Ryan and Heather from Eastenders.

And we'd love to see how the stunning performer would deal with sharing a house with beautiful Samantha Brick.

The newspaper claims that Nadine has been offered a whopping £500,000 to take, the second biggest fee ever given to a celeb over the past decade.

Only X Factor stars Jedward managed to get more from the channel, securing a £1 million deal last year.

"Nadine is confident that the public will warm to the real her, which is a warm, funny but confident woman," a supposed insider said. "Cheryl [Cole] is not the only member of the band that can command big TV show appearance fees.'

"Nadine hopes that she will be able to resurrect her image by appearing on Celebrity Big Brother. This will make or break her".

It's claimed that Nadine needs the money to pay off debuts from a failed restaurant venture in the US.

"This money will allow Nadine to clear all her debts in America and start the Girls Aloud tour with a clean slate," the source explained. "Initially, when she was approached by the station to take part, she turned it down flat.

"But when she met TV executives in London last week and saw how much was on the table she eventually agreed. They simply made her an offer she couldn't refuse."

Celebrity Big Brother returns to Channel 5 in August for a second series, after Denise Welch won the show in January of this year.
