'Celebrity Big Brother': Stephanie Pratt To Follow In Brother Spencer's Footsteps And Become 'BB' Housemate?

Stephanie Pratt is no stranger to reality TV - she's already starred in ‘The Hills’ and recently caused a stir in ‘Made In Chelsea’ - and now it looks like she’s setting her sights on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’.

The next series of ‘CBB’ is due to start this summer, and according to reports, Stephanie is the latest star to sign up for the show, according to The Sun.

An insider told the newspaper: “Despite being American she has enough experience of British TV to know just what producers are after.

“She is sexy but also knows how to be controversial.”

Of course, if Stephanie needs tips on how to survive in the ‘CBB’ house she can always call on her famous brother Spencer - who finished in second place alongside his wife Heidi Montag back in January 2013.

Although they might not have been particularly well-liked by viewers, the dysfunctional reality couple - dubbed ‘Speidi’ by the public - made brilliant TV, and it’s thought that producers are hoping that Stephanie’s presence in the house could bring them back to the UK.

The Sun’s source added: “[Stephanie being in the house] gives bosses the perfect excuse to bring Spencer and Heidi back over to support her.”

Channel 5 bosses are going to have to pull out all the stops to top January’s series of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, which had the whole nation talking thanks to Lee Ryan’s controversial love triangle, Luisa Zissman’s fiery arguments and Jim Davidson’s unexpected feud with Linda Nolan.
