'Celebrity Big Brother' Sees Coronation Street's Bruce Jones And Vicky Entwistle, Aka Les And Janice Battersby, Reunited

The warring Battersby family caused havoc when they first arrived on 'Coronation Street' back in 1997.

Now Bruce Jones and Vicky Entwistle, who played couple Janice and Les Battersby, have been reunited in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.

Jones, who was axed from the ITV1 soap in 2007, was only recently photographed in his new job as a garage mechanic. But now Channel 5 have swept him back into the limelight for the reality show.

The actor famously battled with depression and alcohol problems, however he told The Sun he is ready for a comeback to showbiz.

"I want to get my acting back on track but this gives me something to do,” he said - talking about his job as a mechanic in North Wales.

When strawberry blonde-haired Les first appeared on screen with his wife Janice, daughter Leanne (from a previous relationship) and step-daughter Toyah, they were dubbed "the family from hell". Now Leanne, played by Jane Danson, is the only Battersby still on the street.

Will the former soap couple's sparring relationship return to TV in the 'CBB' house? Let us know what you think below...
