The price is not right.
Gossip king Perez Hilton has an announcement about appearing on 2017’s Celebrity Big Brother – and that’s the price wasn’t right. In his latest podcast, Perez reveals that he was asked by Big Brother execs to take part in the latest “all stars” version of the show but when it came to his fee, the producers of the hit Channel 5 show, refused to meet his demand of “double” the fee he received in 2015.
The reality star revealed that he was the most talked about celebrity in the history of the show and helped make the series, which also starred Michelle Visage and Katie Hopkins, to be one of the most successful in the show’s history. His most talked moments were his dramatic fall out with Michelle Visage about her being a spokesperson for the LGBT community and calling Katie Hopkins a c**t.
Speaking with Chris Booker on the podcast, Perez Hilton said, “I’m worth it…” when he talked about wanting to take home double the fee from his last appearance. He also revealed that the experience was “traumatic” and that the money had to be worth the heartache. He also said that he had left the “door open” to Channel 5 execs for future all-stars series if the price was right. But only if the price was right.
Meanwhile, transgender star Lauren Harries revealed to THEGAYUK.com that she could be entering the house sharing, ““Looking forward to seeing some interesting people at Elstree on the 2nd of January”.
The new series begins on Channel 5 on the January 2017.
