Gogglebox favourites Stephen Webb and Chris Steed could 'sign up for' the new series of Celebrity Big Brother, according to reports.

It may be a little early for the CBB rumours to star flying around (as we haven't even had the standard series hit our screens yet), but it has been said that Stephen and Chris could be walking through Big Brother's famous doors later this year...

According to The Sun, CBB bosses are keen to have Stephen and Chris on board, after being impressed by their "dry humour" on the Channel 4 reality show.

A source told the paper: "Everyone's really excited at the prospect because they are so dynamic and they already know they make great TV. They're fan favourites and their dry humour is bound to be hilarious in the house."

And in a bid to get them to sign on the dotted line, they added that producers are willing to offer the duo a pretty huge sum to appear. The source said: "The show's producers are really keen to get them on and would be happy to pay up to £500,000 to see it happen."

Now, while we would absolutely LOVE to see Stephen and Chris take on the diary room, we'd be a little bit concerned by what that would mean for the BFFs and Gogglebox.

Fans will remember that George Gilbey had to leave Gogglebox when he decided to do Celebrity Big Brother back in 2013. At the time, he revealed he had to give up his place on Gogglebox for his new celebrity status, as show bosses told him the show was based around ordinary people watching TV.

However, George and his parents, mum Linda and step-dad Pete, have now re-joined the show.

Stephen and Chris have been starring on Gogglebox since it first hit our screens three years ago. The pair from Brighton were originally in a relationship when they first joined the show, but have since split and both Stephen and Chris are now engaged to other people.

Chris was first to announce his engagement in October last year, and is set to tie the knot with boyfriend Tony Butland. In January, earlier this year, Stephen revealed he had proposed to his partner Daniel Lustig during a trip to India.

He and Chris have remained close friends since their break up and both have reassured fans they will still be appearing on the sofa together, despite both now being headed for the aisle.
