Former The Only Way Is Essex star Maria Fowler is reportedly at the centre of a bidding war between producers of Celebrity Big Brother and I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!
The 25-year-old model is thought to be keen on marking her return to the small screen with a stint in the house or the jungle, and recently claimed: “I do want to get back on TV – perhaps in I’m A Celebrity or Big Brother.”
Both are looking to sign her up, with Celebrity Big Brother returning to Channel 5 in late summer and ITV’s I’m A Celebrity resuming its traditional November slot.
A source told the Daily Star: “Producers are digging deep to try to get her. There is talk of offers on the table of up to £250,000.”
Fowler would follow in the footsteps of several TOWIE stars should she take up any offer, with Amy Childs and Kirk Norcross starring in CBB and Mark Wright finishing runner-up in I’m A Celebrity all within the last eight months.
