Married At First Sight’s Ben Jardine ‘signs up for Celebrity Big Brother’

Ben Jardine, from Married At First Sight, has "signed up for Celebrity Big Brother " after "impressing the bosses."

The 36-year-old millionaire tycoon began divorce proceedings this week, despite him and Stephanie being the only couple from the show who survived for some time after the cameras stopped rolling.

He and Stephanie began divorce proceedings after a "turbulent year" and it is said Ben is feeling positive now proceedings have started, and looking forward to something new.

A source told The Sun : "Ben has had a year from hell so is thrilled to be going on Celebrity Big Brother.

"It means he can finally put the past behind him and move on."

A second source added: "Ben’s career is definitely on the up.

"He is absolutely made for TV and is the perfect choice for Celebrity Big Brother.

"Ben is bursting with charisma and charm and is also such a nice guy to be around.

"He’s definitely going to prove popular with both his fellow housemates and viewers at home."

Ben and Steph married as total strangers in September 2017, in front of the cameras and millions of viewers.

But he told her he wanted a divorce after three months, but would have to wait 12 months for it to be made official.

He was spotted outside a London’s solicitors earlier this week with a beaming smile.

Ben also told The Sun earlier this year: "Steph’s a wonderful woman with a heart of gold and we were both 110 per cent in it to make it work.

"I never got into this to get divorced so didn’t ever consider that we’d have to stay together for a year if it didn’t work.

"I’m a Catholic boy and I take marriage very seriously – but it just wasn’t working."

Other housemates rumoured to be joining the cast are actor Ryan Thomas, Love Island contestant Gabby Allen and former TOWIE star an Osborne.

Channel 5 declined to comment on the rumours.

Celebrity Big Brother starts at 9pm on Thursday 16 August on Channel 5.
