TOWIE Star Sam Faiers and Blue singer Lee Ryan have been linked to appear in the new series of Celebrity Big Brother
According to The Sun, the 22 year old TOWIE star has agreed a six-figure deal to appear on the thirteenth series of Celebrity Big Brother which kicks off on January 3rd. However she won’t be quitting the ITV 2 show when she enters the House.
A source told the paper: ‘Sam has seen how well Joey has done on I’m A Celebrity and wants a slice of the action herself.
‘She’s asked TOWIE bosses if it would be OK to do it and come back for filming afterwards – and they’re fine with that.
‘They let Mario Falcone go in the summer, so they could hardly have said no.’
Lee Ryan has also been linked to the new series of Celebrity Big Brother after previously being linked to Celebrity Big Brother 9 in January 2012 where he was dropped from the lineup after demanding more money.
An insider told The Sun: “Lee is TV gold when he gets going. He’s not thick but he has a very unusual take on things — a bit like Joey Essex. Also, it will be good publicity for him and Blue, as they’ve got new material they want to plug.”
Earlier today, Channel 5 released images of the new Celebrity Big Brother House which has been given a complete makeover for the new series.
