London, Jan 25: `Celebrity Big Brother` controversy comes the news that Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty may soon co-host the UK version of a reality cricket show based on the `Indian Idol.`

Shetty is in talks with the Investors in Cricket, the owners of the `Cricket Star` television show.

"Cricket is a racially integrated sport across the world, and ignites huge passion in India. While it is not the most popular sport in the UK, it is undergoing a large revival, and it is a critically important sport for the integration of British Asians in the UK. Hence, Shilpa will be the perfect host," said Fraser Castellino, CEO of Cricket Star.

`Cricket Star` was launched on Indian TV last week and is presented by Shweta Salve, along with a host of cricket celebrities including Kapil Dev, Saurav Ganguly and England`s Monty Panesar.
