Amir Khan's wife Faryal Makhdoom has reportedly signed up for 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

The 32-year-old, who married the boxer, 37, in 2013, is said to be set to appear on the popular ITV reality show and after she forgave Amir when he was embroiled in a series of cheating scandals.

A TV insider told The Sun: "Faryal is a huge signing for 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

"She's had her ups and downs with Amir but wants to step into the limelight in her own right. Faryal has said she wants to do the show, she's not a doormat that he walks all over.

"She is fiery and feisty and will make a brilliant housemate."

Her boxing husband had been accused of attempting to solicit sexual images from a 25-year-old bridal model, before the couple reconciled last year.

During an appearance on the 'They Don't Teach This At School with Myleene Klass ' podcast, Amir reflected on "forgiving" wife.

He said: "I always get told off because I do silly things and I got caught doing silly things and obviously I'm human at the end of it.

"She's very forgiving, but I think you know if you keep on pushing someone it’s going to get too much, she’s gonna say you know what, get away from me.

"I can see that she loves me to bits and she's really caring and stuff, because honestly speaking there's a lot of stuff that she does behind the scenes that people don't see.

"Like for example, you know, she set my training camp up, she set the contracts, the lawyers she deals with, the accountants she deals with, she deals with all the bills that we have in the UK and all that.

"We have this payment to make, this payment to make. She does everything. I don’t have no house headache, she takes care of all that, like all the admin work, because I can't do that.

"But it's good that she's taken the pressure away from me on that sense ... And you know, sometimes you need someone like a good backbone, and there's someone there for you. Someone to take that pressure away from you."
