Bear and Pricey - together?! Hold onto your hats, people

With Stephen Bear’s polarizing Celebrity Big Brother win on Friday (26th August), came the end of a series of fights, fumbles and fledgling friendships. And whether you loved him or not, Bear’s name was definitely the one to remember this time round.

But if, by any chance, you were already missing his antics, you’re in luck – as there are rumours that he could be returning for a very special series next year!

Ex on the Beach’s top wind-up merchant Bear has been slated to appear in a ‘Gold Stars vs New Stars’ edition of the Channel 5 reality smash, in which seven familiar faces from CBB past return to go against a fresh batch of celebrities.

A source told Daily Star: ‘Channel 5 wants to do a show that gives a nod to the past but also has a fresh edge with new people too.

‘The celebrities who have done the show before could repeat what they did in the house last time hoping it will curry favour with the fans but the newbies will be quick to call them out as being “old dogs with old tricks”.’

Along with currently reigning champ Bear, names being thrown around for consideration include The Hills villains Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt, Katie Hopkins, Perez Hilton and Winter 2015 winner Katie Price – with whom Bear featured on Tuesday’s Loose Women.

And according to some of the viewers, together they worked a right treat…

…with a side-serving of flirting too!

A preview of what viewing delights await us next year, perhaps? Also rumoured to be on the ‘Gold Stars’ edition of CBB are Lee Ryan and Pete Burns.

TV gods, please make this happen!
