Anyone who watched the original series of ‘Love Island’ in 2005 will know that it belonged to one man, and one man only - Paul Danan

Well, now ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ bosses are hoping he can work his magic on their show, after signing him up for the new series.

The former ‘Hollyoaks’ actor has reportedly agreed to be a contestant on the upcoming summer run of the Channel 5 show, 12 years on from his original reality TV stint.

A source told The Sun: “Paul’s name has been bandied around the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ team ever since ‘Love Island’ returned to our screens.

“He was completely bonkers on that in 2005 so producers think he will be a great addition to ‘CBB’.”

Paul’s mischievous ways led to him becoming known as ‘Dangerous Danan’ during his stay on ‘Love Island’, where he appeared alongside the likes of Calum Best, Rebecca Loos, Abi Titmuss and Lee Sharpe. 

He returned for the second series in 2006, but has largely been off our screens since, except for appearances on ‘Big Brother’s Bit On The Side’.
