Under some plausible assumptions, we find that the dual formulation of linearized gravity in $ D=5$ can be nontrivially coupled to the topological BF model in such a way that the interacting theory exhibits a deformed gauge algebra and some deformed, on-shell reducibility relations. Moreover, the tensor field with the mixed symmetry $ (2,1)$ gains some shift gauge transformations with parameters from the BF sector.
