Bobby Norris has signed up for 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

The 'Only Way is Essex' star - who is a self-confessed 'Big Brother' superfan - looks set to enter the famous house after a "long process" of talks, and show bosses are said to be "thrilled" to have landed their man.

"Bobby is a big star, he's outspoken, fun and makes brilliant TV. He also wears his heart on his sleeve and isn't afraid to show his emotions."

An insider added to The Sun Online: "Bobby is a massive fan of the show but he's never been up for going into the house until now."

As well as being a huge 'Big Brother' fan, Bobby is hoping 'TOWIE' lasts for 50 years, and wants to be on the last-ever episode.

He recently said: "I've done six-and-a-half years on the show and I still love it, I feel like I want to be on there till the very last show.

"I hope it goes on for like 50 years like 'Coronation Street'.

© Press Association "In the early days it felt like a slightly different show, whereas now it feels like a living soap, more real." 

Bobby previously admitted he would consider being on 'CBB' at some point, because he loves the programme.

He said: "I've watched it literally since series one day one, and I'm on 'BOTS' most series to be fair and I think I'd quite fancy the challenge of doing it, because I'm such a fan of the show."
