Kem Cetinay and Chris Hughes offered £100,000 each for Celebrity Big Brother - report

Kem Cetinay and Chris Hughes are in high demand after winning over viewers with their bromance on Love Island.

Love Island's Kem Cetinay and Chris Hughes have reportedly been offered £100,000 each to star in the new series of Celebrity Big Brother.

The pair won over viewers with their bromance on the ITV2 series, which Kem won with girlfriend Amber Davies. And now the Daily Star newspaper has reported that the duo have been given the chance to earn themselves big money by entering the famous house. While the new show kicks off next Tuesday (01Aug17), Kem and Chris would make their big entrance two weeks later, according to the publication.

"The boys are meeting producers next week in London after the wrap party on Sunday night," a source told the newspaper. "Producers are desperate to snap them up as they’ve both got the online social media influence to get viewers tuning into the new series."

Meanwhile, a source told The Sun recently that ITV had asked staff to come up with pitch ideas for shows centred on Kem and Chris, who many believe are "the next Ant & Dec".

Their chemistry isn't the only thing they share with Ant and Dec, however, as Chris and Kem both have musical talent too, with reports suggesting they could be on their way to signing a record deal.

But they have a long way to go if they ever want to follow in the footsteps of Ant and Dec, who were recently crowned best celebrity friendship by parents in the U.K. for an International Friendship Survey from children’s brand Thomas & Friends.

The TV duo, who first met on the set of children's TV show Byker Grove and went on to have a successful music career before making the move into presenting and becoming England's most beloved presenting pair, received 58 per cent of the vote from millennial mums and dads of toddlers, who took part in the survey ahead of the annual UN International Day of Friendship on 30 July (17).
