‘Gogglebox’s George to appear on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’?

By Sam Rigby


‘s George Gilbey is reportedly being lined up to appear on the next series of Celebrity Big Brother.

The 29-year-old – who appears on the Channel 4 series with his mum and stepdad – is a popular choice with Celebrity Big Brother producers for his comedy value, the Daily Star reports.

It emerged yesterday that Gilbey is being considered for the reality series when a researcher publicly posted his travel details for a meeting with show bosses.

Gogglebox has proven to be a critical and commercial success for Channel 4, and scooped a BAFTA on Sunday (May 18).

Channel 5 declined to comment on the reports. Celebrity Big Brother will return later this year, following the conclusion of the civilian series.

Big Brother: Power Trip kicks off on Channel 5 in June.
