Bez is lined up to take a quirky TV road trip with old friend Shaun Ryder after turning Dancing on Ice into fun Sundays.
Phone owners went maracas for the Happy Mondays legend, 57, with offers of shows and advertisements.
A production company is looking to put him behind the wheel with his old friend Shaun, 59, on a shotgun ride on a fun tour of the country.
The producers thought this combination would be golden in the television industry after they appeared previously on Channel 4 with Celebrity Gogglebox.
The source added: “The two of them are excited to see a trip across the UK which is sure to be fun. Even so, if they do that, they also want to involve some of their family, to show their other side to them. “
Bez manager Jayne Houghton said: “I’ve received a lot of offers. Dancing On Ice just continues to show how popular Bez is.
“He was loved by all ages, very sincere and likable. He considers him not a very good skater but he makes everyone smile and everyone needs a little cheer these days. ”
A telecommunications company, inspired by his four-week beekeeping routine, wanted to make a live documentary about his journey from professional beekeeper to honey producer.
He has also been invited to two major quiz shows, including the BBC1 panel show Have I lied to you?
A source said: ‘It’s hilarious that Bez couldn’t lie to save her life. He may have left Dancing On Ice but he just left his fans wanting more. ”
His new family-friendly image has also attracted interest from a major supermarket chain, which wants him to join a campaign.
A brewery in Manchester has also asked former alcoholics to be the face of their non-alcoholic beer.
The source said, “His image is different now. He may have taken a lot of drugs in the past but today he is on a wellness regimen and a family favorite more than ever.
“He’s also working really hard to be a positive role model.”
Bez, whose real name is Mark Berry, stayed on the show for five weeks with co-star Angela Egan, despite struggling to skate.
Some disgruntled fans expressed outrage that he held on for too long.
He left last Sunday after failing to impress the judges in the skating competition.
They kept Corrie’s Sally Dynevor, 58, and Matt Evers, 45, instead after Bez flew through the air in memory of Meat Loaf.
Co-host Holly Willoughby later told him: “You’re the favorite in the family.”
