The 36-year-old former glamour model was reportedly all set to take part in the latest series, which starts on Channel 5 on Monday (15 August), but had to pull out because she fell pregnant with her fifth child.
Now show bosses are keen to get Pricey to sign up for the next series, which will air in January - and are willing to flash the cash to tempt her.
A source told the Daily Star: "Kate has been high on the list of dream CBB contestants in every series.
"This time she is determined to make it."
Katie is no stranger to celeb-based reality shows, having already appeared on 'I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!', but, until now, has yet to be tempted to enter the 'CBB' house.
Her ex-husband, cross-dressing cage fighter Alex Reid, won the show in 2010.
The next series of 'CBB' is already shaping up to be one of the best yet but magician Paul Daniels and his wife Debbie McGee have denied reports they'll be entering the house because of 'personal issues'.
Other celebs rumoured to be taking part include Kelly Brook’s fiancé David McIntosh, former 'TOWIE' star Lauren Goodger, Josie Cunningham and 'George Gilbey of 'Gogglebox' fame.
See who else could be entering the house when the new series of 'CBB' kicks off on Monday, below...
