Potential housemates better watch out, Stephen Bear is definitely keen to return to Celebrity Big Brother.

Bear won last summer's series of CBB and was asked to return for the All Stars and New Stars series earlier this year, only for him to turn it down as he was already committed to Celebs Go Dating.

And that show turned out SO well for him

"Would I do it in the summer? Of course I would. Everyone wants me to go in there. I make a good show but it's up to producers," he told OK! Online.

There's also a specific reason Bear reckons he'd be perfect for the upcoming series: "There's talk of a legends series; I've been told I'm a legend so I'd love to go in there."

At least his confidence hasn't been knocked by his Celebs Go Dating disaster.

This year's series of Celebrity Big Brother was notable for a series of rows, usually involving Kim Woodburn and Nicola McLean, but Bear didn't think it was that good.

"I found it crap, the people on there weren't entertaining. I should have gone in there to stir it up but I wasn't allowed. The summer will be so much better," he said, adding that he hopes his potential housemates "can take the banter".

We're not sure anyone can take the banter when Bear gets going.

Celebrity Big Brother returns to Channel 5 this summer.
