Celebrity Big Brother has already seen its fair share of rumoured housemates for January’s show, but today’s claims that Katie Price and a mystery ex (ALEX REID. Ahem) could be locked in the ‘twisted fairytale’ themed house together have us chomping at the bit for next year’s show.
Look, it’s our guilty pleasure alright?! Plus we’re getting rather impatient for Christmas so that’s our excuse.
ANYWAY, after previous rumours that Katie is looking to ‘revive’ her career on the show, it’s today being reported that producers are looking to shake things up by forcing her to share the house with one of her exes.
THIS IS TV GOLD ALREADY.
Although the identity of the secret ex is yet to be revealed, it’s strongly rumoured that it’s the 36-year-old’s ex-husband Alex Reid who will be forced to face Katie in the creepy-themed house.
January has never sounded so good.
Alex, 39, won the show back in 2010, where he was shocked to be faced with another of Katie’s exes, Dane Bowers.
However, a house insider told The Daily Star that there simply wasn’t enough drama during their time together, hence their quest to make things a billion times more dramatic next year.
Or words to that effect. They revealed: “There was nowhere near the fireworks they hoped for.
“So this year they want Kate in there herself to cause havoc with an ex. It could be very explosive.”
As long as they can bribe someone into being the cat, we’ll LOVE it.
Apologies if that sounds weird.
The firm’s Nicola McGeady also added: “We reckon she will be a front-runner to win.”
If it’s not Alex though, who could it POSSIBLY be?!
Erm, this lot actually. Dwight Yorke and Gareth Gates are also being talked about, as well as first husband Peter Andre, who she met during her I’m A Celebrity experience back in 2004.
Well, they DID say they wanted fireworks!
The new series will feature a Louis Carrol ‘twisted fairytale’ theme, and the house has been completely redesigned to include “whimsicle elements that conjure up a magical atmosphere full of possibility and curiosity”.
But if you think it’s going to be a case of happily ever after for the housemates think again, as CBB bosses have warned there’s “something more sinister” lurking in the house.
Channel 5 explained: “As always in the Big Brother house, celebrities should expect the unexpected as there will be secrets, twists and surprises around each corner.”
Aside from the usual rumours, including this latest Katie Price development, the shows bosses haven’t revealed anything about the line-up just yet, but we’re anticipating the usual pick ‘n mix of house-hold names and non-entities.
And as usual speculation about this year’s line-up of housemates has gone into over-drive already, with Patsy Kensit, Chloe-Jasmine Whichello, Michelle Visage, Callum Best, and Jake Quickenden all being touted as possible housemates.
One thing we are sure about is we’re ridiculously excited about this sinister undertone already.
And we’re definitely keeping our fingers crossed for this Katie Price showdown!
