If we said the words ‘Rylan Clark’, ‘Katie Price’ and ‘Meatloaf’ to you, you be right to blurt immediately back to us the words “BEST CHRISTMAS EVER”.
Imagine Katie and Rylan, lounging around on a faux fur rug by the fire, Meatloaf occasionally bustling through in a pinny to deliver a steaming hot tray of Iceland party-sized sausage rolls. Rylan gives an impromptu and uptempo rendition of Walking in the Air. Katie Price likes all the Quality Street you don’t like, and vice versa. It is bliss.
But forget all that for a moment, because that dream has absolutely no chance of coming true. Instead you are going to have to console yourself with watching the aforementioned stars driven to tedium inside the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Yes, it’s happening. If you’re anything like us, you threw away your Advent calendar weeks ago and have since been counting down to a much more important date: January 3rd. That’s the day the CBB enclosure opens its doors, and already the rumour mill is going into overdrive speculating who might or might not go into the house.
Katie Price has previous form with reality TV shows, enjoying a stint on I’m a Celeb as well as a string of ITV2 documentaries – she’d be good value if she does follow in former husband Alex Reid’s footsteps by taking part in the show. Best pal Rylan Clark is also rumoured to be considering joining Katie in the house, but the CBB dates might clash with The X Factor tour. We’ll see.
Meanwhile, Meatloaf, Claire from Steps, and Les Battersby (sorry, sorry: ‘Bruce Jones’) are also rumoured to be in the running. Shows producers are also thought to be mulling over adding Justin Lee Collins to the mix, Pukka Pads and all.
But the best addition could be The Hills stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt. Imagine Spencer Pratt trying to understand what a Les Battersby is. This could be the greatest series yet.
