Drug mules Michaella McCollum and Melissa Reid, otherwise known as the Peru Two, are in talks to star on the next series of Big Brother.
The two women made headlines back in 2013, when they were caught trying to smuggle 11kg of cocaine, worth €1.75million, from Peru to Madrid.
The 24-year-olds are now in “advanced talks” for the Channel 5 show, which is currently on the hunt for “outgoing pairs” who “fancy themselves as TV’s next duo”.
Michaella was previously in talks to join Celebrity Big Brother after she was released from a Peruvian jail last April.

A source close to Michaella told The Sun, “Michaella has made no secret of her dream to become a reality TV star.
“She’s spent the last six months trying to build up her profile and her image – and just days ago she was even snapped on the beach in a very revealing swimming costume.
“It’s all part of her bid to get her name out there in the lead up to returning to our screens – this time on an entertainment show, not BBC news.”
