Former Strictly star James Jordan has been tipped for a return to the Celebrity Big Brother house when the new series kicks off next year.

According to reports, James has been offered a whopping six figure deal to go back into the house and live under Big Brother's rule all over again.

There's no doubt he'd be great TV, right?

A source told The Sun: "Channel 5 has approached James with a six figure deal. 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 originally appeared on CBB's fourteenth series, that was eventually won by Gary Busey. He became quite a controversial character on the show, thanks to his no-nonsense attitude. He finished in third place.

Rumours James could be heading back into the house come after it was claimed there will be an Ultimate Celebrity Big Brother, 'Gold Stars versus New Stars', to mark its twentieth series.

Fans will get to see memorable faces from over the years return and join a slew of new famous faces too.

Model Jasmine Lennard (who found love with Cristian MJC on BB's sixteenth series) and last year's CBB winner Stephen Bear have also been tipped to make a comeback, while Lauren Goodger is also up for returning to the show.

Reports of an all-star series first 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.

"This way there'll be no dull moments. 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."

Channel 5, meanwhile, are yet to confirm any details when it comes to CBB's new series, but one thing is for sure, we're now *seriously* intrigued...
