One Direction Niall Horan's brother could end up on Big Brother

Niall Horan

One Direction Niall Horan's brother has been rumoured for this summer's Big Brother line up.

Greg Horan is supposedly in talks to join the cast of the new series on Channel 5.

However there is one slight issue due to this year's rumoured 'pairs' twist

"He's been in talks to try and become a celeb himself but Big Brother bosses would only have him in the regular version, not the celebrity edition of the show as he's not well known enough," a source claimed.

They then added to the Daily Star newspaper: "They're struggling to find him a partner as it's doubles and he's been searching through his Facebook trying to find someone."

It was previously alleged by the tabloid that Greg and Niall were "no longer on speaking terms" after a number of rows.

A "close family source" claimed to the paper: “Greg has been jealous since Niall’s first X Factor audition and always believed he was the star of the family.

“He can’t handle living in someone else’s shadow and is now looking for an agent to try make a name for himself away from his brother.”

As for Big Brother, it's not quite clear what the rumoured 'pairs' twist will involve when the new series starts next month.

Back when auditions for the show began, Channel 5 invited only duos to apply.

Bit On The Side's Rylan Clark-Neal recently said: “I can say that we were looking for pairs but I can’t say any more than that.

"Whether that means there’s only going to be pairs, or there’s going to be singles, I’ve got no idea. I mean I have, but I’m not telling you.”

Big Brother will launch in June on Channel 5.
