The cage fighter and Celebrity Big Brother 7 winner told Gay Times that he would return to the Big Brother house, despite his desire to move forward rather than back.
Reid said: "I would go on Big Brother again, yes. In life I'm constantly on a mission, I go to bed at night and have all this grey matter cycling in my brain.
"In the BB house you have none of that, you're safe, there's no television and you don't have to worry about anything. Apart from not knowing what's going on in the outside world of course!"
Reid's ex-wife Katie Price recently denied claims that she would feature on this year's Celebrity Big Brother.
Reid added: "I've had two years of being in the spotlight and sometimes I think it would be nice to have a simpler life. I've got four really big projects going on right now and it's a lot of meetings but it's exciting.
"It's hard, like when the paparazzi turn up outside my parents' house, and I've been betrayed by friends along the way too. I can't go back, I keep on pushing forwards."
Reid, who is currently dating fellow Celebrity Big Brother winner Chantelle Houghton, has said that he hopes to present shows from "danger zones... a bit like Ross Kemp does in Afghanistan".
