The ex-TOWIE star Dan Osborne could be entering the Big Brother house following his engagement to Jacequline Jossa

Ahhh, summer. The season for barbeques, Pimms and of course, Big Brother. It’s the British triple treat!

And the first contestant that may have been confirmed is former TOWIE star Dan Osborne. A close source has told the Mirror Online that ‘he is 100 per cent going into the house’. While nothing’s been officially confirmed, we think the 24-year-old would be a brilliant in the Big Brother house, and here are 5 reasons why…

1.) Bangin’ body
Love him or hate him, there’s no denying that Dan Osborne’s body is a thing of beauty. We mean, just LOOK at it – he would blend in perfectly alongside statues of Greek gods in a museum. And with Dan being partial to taking a topless selfie of himself every now and then (even in the bath sometimes, oo-er!) and there being nowhere to hide under the eyes of Big Brother, we’re sure we’ll see a cheeky glimpse of those muscles.

2.) Setting the record straight
Dan hasn’t had the easiest year let’s be honest. He’s was axed from TOWIE, and there were THOSE recordings of him allegedly threatening ex-girlfriend and mother to his child, Megan Tomlin, that were released. Although he hasn’t excused them and deeply regrets them, he’s since then said that he didn’t mean the things he said. And now, after proposing to EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa, who he’s had a second child with, we’ll no doubt get to see him as the lovely family man we know he is!

3.) Screen time
He’s put the days of TOWIE behind him now. And remember when he was a contestant on Splash! and we were treated to a weekly parade of Dan in some pretty skimpy speedos? Well, he hasn’t really been diving into any other TV projects since. So an appearance on Big Brother would give us all some well-needed screen time with Mr.Osborne.

4.) Dreamy Dan
Now, let’s not forget that Dan was part of the Dreamboys. You know, that group of fit boys who stripped off and danced around the stage. Like a less swish and Hollywood version of Magic Mike if you like. So here’s fingers crossed that Dan will be treating some of his housemates and of course, us, with a tease or two. Or at the very least, some slick dance moves. We’re thinking The Robot.

5.) Daddy cool
Dan is a doting dad to son Teddy and daughter Ella, and is often sharing snaps of him snuggling up sweetly with them. The photos are adorable and you can tell that he loves those little munchkins more than anything else in the world. So we can totally see Dan being the dad of the house that housemates go to on advice on girls and a shoulder to cry on when they’re hungover. Hopefully, he won’t be changing any nappies though…

We can’t wait for the CBB to start! And he’s hoping that Dan enters the house and all this becomes a reality!

Seeing double! How similar is Dan Osborne’s wedding going to be to Mark and Michelle’s?

N’aww! See when Dan celebrated his first Christmas with son Teddy…
