Dapper Laughs could be about to give his career a much-needed shot in the arm, with an appearance on the next series of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’.

It’s been reported that the controversial comedian - whose dating show ‘Dapper Laughs: On The Pull’ was axed by ITV2 last year after he made headlines for making jokes about rape in his stand-up routine - is in talks to appear in this summer’s series of ‘CBB’.

Dapper, real name Daniel O’Reilly, subsequently ‘killed off’ his comedy alter-ego during an interview with ‘Newsnight’, but it didn’t take him long to bring him back from the dead.

The character was last seen in a sitcom pilot, which was uploaded onto his YouTube page… which sounds like it’s really going well if ‘CBB’ beckons.

A source tells The Sun: “Daniel has held talks with bosses about joining Big Brother in the summer.

“Producers think he would be a big character and it would be good for him to reveal his true self after all the controversy.”

In recent years, stand-up comedians have done well for themselves on ‘CBB’, with both Jim Davidson and Julian Clary emerging as winners in their respective series.

If the rumours surrounding this summer’s ‘CBB’ turn out to be true, then it could be the most controversial series to date, with rumoured housemates including Tila Tequila and Janice Dickinson.

Other stars thought to be heading into the house - which will reportedly have a ‘UK v USA’ theme - include ‘TOWIE’ cast member Gemma Collins and wrestler-turned-reality-star Hulk Hogan.
