The Kent stars of hit TV show Gogglebox are reportedly being lined up for Celebrity Big Brother this summer.
Dom and Steph Parker - known as the "tipsy, posh couple" from the Channel 4 show - have won over the nation with their hilarious antics while sitting on the sofa at their Sandwich mansion.
Now the pair, who hired out their home for a masked orgy involving 60 guests, are now said to be in talks with Channel 5 bosses over an offer to appear in the Big Brother house.
They are believed to have already turned down an offer once before, but it is hoped they will give a big ratings boost to the show.
Dom, 49, and 47-year-old Steph have had viewers in hysterics with their outspoken views on TV shows - while knocking back alcohol.
Last week it emerged private swingers' club Killing Kittens rented part of the Salutation in Sandwich - owned by the couple - for the night for £1,700.
The £3.5million mansion features in the Bafta award-winning show Gogglebox in which they watch the latest programmes.
It is believed the Parkers were not at home during the party - organised for the "sexual elite" - and they were unaware of the racy antics.
Swingers wearing masks and black ties mingled in the house, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, for champagne and oysters before the "entertainment" began.
Then many of the partygoers slipped into one of the bedrooms - or "playrooms" - to have sex with each other, according to reports.
The Parkers, who are hoping to have their own chat show soon, recently put their 16-bedroom mansion on the market to concentrate on their TV career.
Chatham-born Blue singer Lee Ryan, 30, appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in January.
Big Brother starts on Channel 5 on Thursday, June 5 followed by Celebrity Big Brother.
