A source told the paper: “It’s put all the other housewives’ noses out of joint cause Ester has only been on the show for two episodes and already she’s the favourite.

“Ester has been offered an enormous fee and she certainly won’t be able to say no.

“She’ll make TV gold on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ and it will certainly cause a few fights on set.”

It looks like she could be joined in the house by former ‘CBB’ winners Charlotte Crosby and Stephen Bear, as they have been rumoured to be returning as a couple.  

New parents Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell have been named as potential housemates, although any involvement has been cast into doubt following the on-off couple’s recent personal problems.
