Wendi Peters and Bruce Jones for Celebrity Big Brother 2013?

There's a story in today's Mirror suggesting that ex-Coronation Street actors Wendi Peters and Bruce Jones have been approached to join the next series of Celebrity Big Brother.

Wendi and Bruce played Cilla and Les Battersby-Brown and the paper says that both are said to be ­seriously considering the proposal, which would see them back together on TV for the first time since 2007. 

I did chuckle when I read this quote though: 'Last night a TV source said: “If they sign up, it will be a real coup as there are at least 10 million Corrie fanatics out there who will immediately be interested in watching.”
 
While Wendi Peters has gone to do theatre work since leaving Coronation Street and could well return to the cobbles at any time as both her character and the actress left in good grace, the same can't be said for Bruce Jones. Despite a campaign by his PRs to get him back in the press, on telly and even on this Blog, this fan won't be interested in watching anything he's on.

It sounds like his people are putting it out there. She doesn't need the work. He does.

I usually watch Celeb BB - believe me, if Bruce Jones is going to be on it, that's a good reason to give it a miss!

I have to say as a regular watcher of all things Big Brother, Celeb and ordinary, that having these two in the new series of CBB would be a joy! I don't understand this hatred and/or resentment of Bruce Jones either. Les Battersby was a great character. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion(s) but I am curious why blogger and others are such agin' it?!

I liked watching Les Battersby as well.

Have a read in the news folks, about the circumstances under which Bruce left the show and his conduct (some illegal) since he departed. This isn't about Les Battersby, it's about the actor underneath. He should just leave the stage quietly and be thankful for his time in the spotlight.
