The 57-year-old reality TV star is thought to be close to signing a deal to enter the house when the show returns in August and programme bosses are hoping the mouthy former supermodel will shake things up.

A source told the Daily Star: “Janice is a reality star. She wound everyone up on I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! She’ll really shake up the CBB house.”

If Janice does take part in the Channel 5 show, she will join a host of stars including Cheryl Fergison – whose EastEnders character Heather Trott was recently axed in a shocking murder storyline – Blue singer Lee Ryan, comedian Julian Clary and Girls Aloud beauty Nadine Coyle.

Coronation Street legend Julie Goodyear is also reported to have signed a £300,000 deal to take part with bosses hoping she will be as big a hit as last series’ winner Denise Welch.

A show source said: “Julie may be getting on a bit but she’s certainly game for a laugh.

“Denise proved that the Corrie stars bring in a decent audience and don’t mind poking fun at themselves and having a laugh.

“Julie is keen as mustard to get in the house and is already talking about winning.”
