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...
Janice was the first celebrity to be rumoured for the 2015 summer series of 'CBB', reportedly scooping a cool £300,000 to take part.
Eamonn has admitted that his wife, Ruth Langsford, has forbidden him from going on 'CBB', because she doesn't want the whole country to see him in his pants. Ruth... we owe you one.
The 'Mob Wives' star reportedly had to pull out of the upcoming series, after undergoing surgery for throat cancer.
The Daily Star have claimed that, after trying to get Keeley on board for the past few years, this will be the year she finally enters the 'CBB' house.
Oh, Gemma. Having not learned her lesson from 'I'm A Celebrity' - which she walked out of after just three days - Gemma reportedly wants to show people "the real her" on 'CBB'.
Fingers crossed he's brought those shorts...
Sadly, Dina was quick to deny rumours that she was in talks with Channel 5 to join the show.
'Teen Mom' turned adult film star, producers have reportedly roped in Farrah to "sex up" the 'CBB' house.
Metro have reported that David is among this year's "potential housemates" from the States, which is so unbelievably exciting we're not quite sure what to do.
