Stephen Bear says Celebrity Big Brother bosses have "begged" him to return

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Stephen Bear has claimed Celebrity Big Brother bosses have "begged" him to return to the house.

Speaking this week, the former CBB winner said he would be up for a comeback but NOT as part of a couple.

“They begged me to go on in January but I was contracted to Celebs Go Dating, so if the opportunity came up again then I’d have to give the people what they want," Bear said.

It was rumoured previously that show bosses are looking at potential famous duos to enter the house this summer, as part of another All Stars twist.

"It’s seriously early for anything to be set in stone but bosses are working hard on the idea and talking to the couples about big money deals to firmly secure them for the series in the summer," a source told The Sun.

Names on the line up could include former CBB winners and now couple Bear and Charlotte Crosby.

"We could go in, but the thing is, I’m a lone wolf, I do things by myself," Bear explained. “I feel like if Charlotte was in there I’d have to comfort her but I’d just want to be myself, and I’d never be a good boy.”

In an interview with The Sun, Bear went on to declare that he would definitely win against Charlotte if they ever went up against one another.

"Charlotte would never beat me," Bear insisted, "We spoke about who would win funnily enough, and she said she would, and I said I would. It would be funny wouldn’t it?

“We’d make great TV, maybe it should do it.”

Celebrity Big Brother will air on Channel 5 this summer.
