A new series of Celebrity Big Brother is on the horizon, so speculation on the line-up is due – and being put forward for consideration is Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas.
According to The Sun, Ryan was inspired to look at reality TV options after watching his brother Adam’s success on I’m A Celebrity and brother Scott’s time in Love Island.
A source claimed: “His brother Adam was on I’m A Celebrity and his other brother [Scott] was on Love Island, so he knows exactly how lucrative it can be to get a spot on one of those kind of shows.
“There’s talk of a £500,000 as an appearance fee.”
It wouldn’t be Ryan’s first foray into reality TV – he appeared on the second series of Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls.
In fact, he met his girlfriend on the show – TOWIE’s Lucy Mecklenburgh.
After leaving Corrie, Ryan headed to the Southern Hemisphere for a while, doing a brief stint in Australian soap Neighbours.
