The ‘This Morning’ presenter has revealed that Channel 5 have approached him to be a housemate in the past, but Ruth has put her foot down and refused to let him take them up on their offer - because she doesn’t want the nation to see Eamonn in his pants.
Speaking to the Daily Star, a self-confessed ‘CBB’ superfan Eamonn explains: “I have been asked to do ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, and I say to Ruth ‘I don’t think we can ignore this now.’

“It boils down to my underwear why I am not allowed to go on.”
During the last series of ‘CBB’, the housemates were shocked to discover that Eamonn was hiding behind one of the two-way mirrors, when he hosted a live slot on ‘Big Brother’s Bit On The Side’.
He later entered the house as part of a news bulletin-themed task, where he acted as an anchor on a fake news station.
‘Celebrity Big Brother’ is due to return this summer, following the news that Channel 5 had signed up the show for at least three more years.
Katie Price was the winner of the last series of ‘CBB’, triumphing over Katie Hopkins, who won a surprising amount of fans during her time in the house, despite coming to blows with several of her housemates.
