Celebrity Big Brother bosses want to sign up 80s pop icon Steve Strange.

The bisexual ex-junkie, 52, who found fame in new romantic band Visage, has had a series of meetings with Channel 5 executives.

Fade To Grey singer Steve has been linked to CBB a few times but is said to be taking this year’s offer more seriously.


Big Brother bosses think he would be an excellent housemate thanks to his murky past, which also includes shoplifting.

His pop career collapsed in the late 90s, leaving him in a haze of drink, heroin addiction and mental problems.

The singer – real name Steven John Harrington – fled to Porthcawl, Mid Glamorgan, to recover at his mother’s home.

But he hit rock bottom in April 2000 when he was arrested for stealing a Teletubby doll from a shop in Bridgend. Police found he had stolen from a string of high street stores, but he was let off with a suspended jail sentence.


He has tried to rebuild his showbiz career, appearing on Celebrity Scissorhands and playing himself in the drama Ashes To Ashes.

On his Facebook page he wrote: “I promise you that as entertainment value I won’t let you down.”

A pal added: “He’s got so many amazing stories from his past he’d be TV gold.”
