The two girls which caused former One Direction singer Zayn Malik to be 'signed-off work with stress' could be appearing in this summer's Big Brother. It's reported that Big Brother bosses want someone similar to Helen Wood, who had gained notoriety in the press after sleeping with footballer Wayne Rooney. Wood defied the odds to win Big Brother 2014.

The Daily Star says Martina Olsson and Lauren Richardson have apparently been approached by producers to enter the new series, in the hope they will tell all about Zayn Malik. The girls were pictured separately with the former One Direction singer while he was on the 1D world tour last month.

Zayn was initially signed-off work with stress and flew back to the UK as speculation grew he had been cheating, something which he vigorously denied. Zayn is engaged to Little Mix star Perrie Edwards and the pair were pictured last week househunting.

A Big Brother spokesperson told the tabloid that they do not comment on potential housemates. The new summer series is expected to return next month on Channel 5. Helen Wood dominated the 2014 series having been given a pass to the final in the first week. She received numerous warnings from Big Brother for her behaviour and regularly clashed with fellow housemates.

Zayn quit One Direction last month saying that he wanted to be a "normal 22-year-old." Since he quit, he has dominated social media talk.

It was reported that he had met with music producer Naughty Boy, who then released a demo online. It was later revealed that this was a demo from when all members of One Direction met with him.

The new series of Big Brother is expected to return earlier than usual, to leave a bigger gap between the civilian and celebrity series. The rumours around the summer celebrity series has already begun, with big star names being linked to the show. Former model and reality TV star Janice Dickinson has apparently signed a £300,000 deal to go into the Celebrity Big Brother house. Dickinson previously starred in the 2007 series of ITV's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!
