Looks like Michaella McCollum could star in Big Brother but on one condition

Laura Holland

This is a bit mad.

Drug mule Michaella McCollum is said to be in “advanced talks” to head into the Big Brother house when the series returns later this year.

The Sun is reporting that producers are keen to get her into the house but on one condition – that her accomplice, Melissa Reid, also goes in.

The show will have a pairs theme with people entering in twos so unless Michaella can talk Melissa into it, she might not be able to take part. Michaella is reportedly interested in the show but Melissa is not.

A source said:

“Michaella has made no secret of her dream to become a reality TV star.

She’s spent the last six months trying to build up her profile and her image – and just days ago she was even snapped on the beach in a very revealing swimming costume.

It’s all part of her bid to get her name out there in the lead up to returning to our screens – this time on an entertainment show, not BBC news.

Big Brother producers have been chatting to her about getting her on the next series of the show, which is a pairs theme.

Her accomplice Melissa is less excited by the whole showbiz world but, because of the pairs theme, producers think they would be the ideal signing.

They think the girls will help to stir up some excitement and chatter for the new series, as well as bring some glamour and drama.”

We’ll just have to wait and see.
