Dan Osborne 'Considering Celebrity Big Brother'
Disgraced The Only Way Is Essex star reportedly offered slot on next series...
Celebrity Big Brother has become a bit of a halfway house for famous folk seeking to rehabilitate their public image, with Dappy, Michael Barrymore and Jim Davidson all appearing in recent years.
Osborne was axed from Towie in April after voice recordings of his violent threats to his ex-GF Megan Tomlin went public.
A mole told the tabloid: "Dan was reality TV's golden boy but the public's perception of him totally changed after hearing all the horrible things he said to Megan.
"He's done for unless he convinces people he's really a nice guy.
"Big Brother loves controversial figures and Dan is on the job hunt after Towie ditched him, so this could be a match made in heaven.
"This is his best opportunity to show people how sorry he is — and collect a big cheque at the same time."
His rep refused to confirm the story, but made the telling comment that: "He's looking at various options at the moment."
Which sounds like a "yes" to us.
