Michael Le Vell heading for Celebrity Big Brother 2014? Bill Roache Turned it Down?

23 Jul, 2014 - 12:52 AM by James
The Daily Star has reported that Michael Le Vell, who plays Kevin Webster in Coronation Street is in 'advanced talks' to appear in the next Celebrity Big Brother.

The 49-year-old actor was acquitted in a high-profile trial earlier this year, and has since been in rehab for drug and alcohol issues.

The paper said that Coronation Street's Bill Roache who plays Ken Barlow was also approached, but he turned it down.

Source quoted: "They wanted a double-whammy of Le Vell and Roach. Bill was their main target, but Le Vell is now a man transformed."

Other names rumoured by press sources so far include:
  • Misfits star Lauren Socha,
  • Kelly Brook’s fiance David McIntosh,
  • Actor Gary Busey,
  • Reality star Stephanie Pratt,
  • Former vice-madam Natalie Rowe,
  • Journalist Julie Burchill,
  • Dierdre Kelly aka 'White Dee' from Benefits Street on Channel 4,
  • Scarlett Moffatt, Steph and Dom Parker, and George Gilbey from Channel 4's Gogglebox.

Is Michael Le Vell heading for a date with Celebrity Big Brother?

The Celebrity Big Brother rumours are continuing to fly, with troubled Coronation Street star Michael Le Vell the latest name to be linked with a place in the house.

According to the Daily Star the 49-year-old – who was acquitted of child sex offences earlier this year – is in ‘advanced talks’ to take his place with the other famous faces when the series returns next month.

The paper reports that producers had also hoped to sign up co-star Bill Roache – aka Street stalwart Ken Barlow – who also faced trial for similar offences this year, and was also found not guilty.

However their plans to secure a Corrie double act for the house have fallen flat after Roache turned down the chance to appear.

‘They wanted a double-whammy of Le Vell and Roach. Bill was their main target, but Le Vell is now a man transformed,’ a source claimed.

Michael Le Vell returned to the soap following his acquittal, but later took a break to enter rehab for his drug and alcohol issues.

If he does sign up for the house he will join a line-up currently rumoured to include Misfits star Lauren Socha, Kelly Brook’s fiance David McIntosh, Hollywood actor Gary Busey, reality star Stephanie Pratt and Gogglebox trio Steph and Dom Parker and George Gilbey.

The show is reported to be kicking off on August 18, although no official date has been confirmed by Channel 5.

As the upcoming series of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ draws nearer, the rumour mill is going into overdrive with a whole slew of names suggested as potential housemates, and new reports have hinted that ‘Coronation Street’ actor Michael Le Vell could be one of them.

According to the Daily Star, the soap star - who plays mechanic Kevin Webster - is hoping to show viewers that he is a ‘new man’ after leaving rehab earlier this year, and is believed to be in “advanced talks” to appear on the reality series, which kicks off later this summer.
