Alex Reid has claimed that he could land a role on a “big-budget” BBC show.
Writing in his Star magazine column, the Celebrity Big Brother winner explained that the programme is just one project he will be auditioning for over the coming weeks.
Reid commented: “I’ve got some auditions coming up, which I’m thrilled about. One of them is for quite a big-budget BBC drama, and the director asked to see me specifically.
“I do not want to get too excited yet, just because I know how this world works, but it feels really good to get the acting buzz back.”
Reid first found fame by playing footballer Jason Cunliffe in Hollyoaks, but has concentrated on his cage-fighting career in recent years.
During his stint on Celebrity Big Brother, the 34-year-old repeatedly spoke of his desire to make it big in Hollywood.
