James Jordan ‘signs up for Celebrity Big Brother’s Gold Stars vs New Stars’

Strictly Come Dancing star James Jordan has been tipped for a Celebrity Big Brother return as part of next year’s all-star line-up alongside former housemates Jasmine Lennard and Stephen Bear.

The ballroom dancer, who is married to Ola Jordan, appeared on the reality show in 2014 and producers apparently loved him so much, they’re offering him a six-figure sum to enter CBB spin-off series Gold Stars vs New Stars.

“Channel 5 approached James with a six figure deal,” a show insider told The Sun. “The producers loved how feisty he was when he appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2014 and they know he won’t hold back.”

James, who previously participated in the fourteenth series of CBB, finished in a respectable third place, just behind Audley Harrison and 2014’s champion Gary Busey. Honk!

As a former controversial character, producers are reportedly hoping that James’ no-nonsense attitude will clash with outspoken model Jasmine, who was the first housemate to be evicted from the tenth series of the show in 2012.

“Bringing in big personalities like James and Jasmine makes great TV and there could be a clash between the two of them,” the source added.

Reports of an all-star series featuring both ex-housemates and new faces surfaced in August, with sources claiming at the time: “Bringing back the celebs they know will cause the drama would result in the most explosive series so far.

“Usually celebrity housemates brag about how controversial and confrontational they’ll be while being screened by producers before going in, but then nothing happens.”

They added: “It’s all top secret right now. Bosses have drawn up a list of their dream housemates and are currently approaching them with big money deals to sign them up for next year.”

Gold Stars vs New Stars will launch in January, just weeks after James’ wife Ola returns from Australia after appearing in the I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here camp for ITV1. So watch this space!
