CBB star Stephen Bear could be back on our screens before you know it, as his brother Danny has teased their family may have been offered their own reality TV show.

A la the Kardashians? Danny reckons theirs will be much better, and said: "Never mind these Kardashians, we'd make great TV."

He told The Sun: "We're a family of entertainers - it's in our DNA. We're always laughing and joking."

When asked if he and the rest of Bear's family would be up for having their own reality show, Danny replied: "Maybe we've already been offered something. Stephen's management have got a load of meetings lined up for when he comes out."


Bear is currently starring on CBB and has made it to the final of the series, despite being eternally nominated by his housemates - Katie Waissel and Sam Fox were recently evicted, meaning Bear, Marnie Simpson, Ricky Norwood, Frankie Grande, Renee Graziano and Aubrey O'Day now make up the final six.

Throughout his time on the show, Bear has had fans divided with his wind up ways and his controversial romance with Chloe Khan.

Danny, meanwhile, has been supporting Bear while he's been in the house, and he has been very vocal when it comes to Bear's public split with ex-girlfriend Lillie Lexie Gregg.

Bear had been dating Lillie when he entered the house, but later revealed he wanted to be single again - claiming he 'doesn't have time' for a girlfriend.

He went on to publicly move on with Chloe, prompting Lillie to enter the house and confront Bear over his behaviour. She told him: "The embarrassment and humiliation I've had. This is all one big game to you, it is a joke at my expense."

Bear remained silent throughout Lillie's brief visit and shrugged his shoulders at her. He later cried over seeing her again and told Big Brother she'd had a "lucky escape" from him, before admitting he'd like to see Chloe when he leaves the house.

Danny, meanwhile, has criticised Lillie for entering the house. He claimed that Bear had tried to split with Lillie "three times" before heading into the house, and he claimed he didn't buy her speech on how Bear had "embarrassed and humiliated" her.

"That Oscar-winning performance with the Home and Away music and the crocodile tears meant we never got a chance to say we love him. But he will cope. He's had a lot of heartache and it will take a lot more to break him," Danny said.

He also defended Bear's pranks throughout the series, telling BOTS host Rylan Neal-Clark: "He's a lot quieter at home, I can tell you that much. There's no malice in him.

"He actually said to me before he went in that he's fed up with seeing most of these celebrities every year cutting a big fat pay cheque sitting on their hands, insulting the viewers who bother to pick up the phone and vote for them. It really is time someone made them work for a change. At least he's trying!"

CBB continues tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
