Celebrity Big Brother 2013: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt to team up as one contestant
The American reality stars, who are married to each other, will be seen as one person by show bosses if they take part and will have to nominate together and will be evicted at the same time if voted out by the public.
A source told the Daily Star: “Just like when Jedward were in the house, Spencer and Heidi will be considered to be one housemate.
“It means they will nominate, be evicted or win the show as a pair.”
The couple allegedly begged producers to let them compete as a team as they believe they are stronger together.
Former X Factor stars Jedward competed in the same way last year and they ended up coming in third place.
An insider said: “Normally American stars don’t do that well on Big Brother but this could change all that.
“It worked for Jedward – and Heidi and Spencer know this could be their secret weapon.”
The stars are said to hope their rumoured appearance on the show will boost their profile in the UK.
The source said: “They’re massive in The States but a lot of Brits don’t even know who they are. They hope doing well on CBB can boost their earning potential over here.”
Celebrity Big Brother starts on Channel 5 on Thursday 3rd January at 9pm.
