Big Brother comeback for Nikki Grahame and Brian Dowling?!

Big Brother

Nikki Grahame has revealed plans to return to the Big Brother house this summer... AGAIN.

The original Big Brother 7 housemate first appeared on the show in 2006 but has returned twice since then, as well as taking part in the Canadian series.

Now she's supposedly "in talks" to return for this summer's Celebrity series, which is rumoured to feature pairs of celebs.

"I love doing Big Brother – I will never tire of that show. I think the couple thing is a fantastic new twist," said Nikki today. “If I go back in, in a couple, I would have to be paired up with Brian Dowling. I would force him to share a bed with me.”

She added to The Sun newspaper: "The producers are on it – they love new twists every series.”

As was previously confirmed, this year the 'civilian' version of Big Brother was looking for pairs of housemates for the new show.

They could be relatives, couples or just friends, although precisely what Big Brother has planned for them isn't quite clear.

Rumour has it that the summer Celebrity series could follow suit with a similar 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 newspaper.

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

“They know it could make or break their relationship, but with both of them born for reality TV it’ll be brilliant viewing whatever happens," an insider said.

The tabloid also suggests that The Cheeky Girls - who were originally tipped for the non-Celeb series - could also end up in the CBB house instead.
