The former ‘X Factor’ star is a new target for bosses, who are hoping he’ll spill the beans on what it’s really like to star on the ITV talent contest, according to reports.
The Sun adds that Channel 5 execs also think Marcus could have some good ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ goss, as his boyfriend of four years Robin Windsor was a ‘Strictly’ pro, before injury forced him to miss out earlier this year.
“Marcus would be a great signing if ‘CBB’ can make it happen,” an insider tells the paper. "He knows all about what really goes on when you appear on ‘The X Factor’ and also dates Robin, who is a big name in ‘Strictly’ circles.”
Keith Chegwin is also rumoured to have signed up, alongside 2014’s surprise Christmas number one candidate, the Wealdstone Raider.
The upcoming series of ‘CBB’ will have a twisted fairytale theme, and the show’s presenter Emma Willis is promising plenty of shocks and unexpected revelations.
