Celebrity Big Brother's Calum Best has confessed he needs reality TV gigs to pay his bills.
“If I could easily say no… I wouldn’t be doing f**king reality TV if I didn’t need to me,” he says in the show. “I do these things as I need to earn a living and this is the path I’m on. I haven’t been on TV for 15 years and when jobs come, they come."
Calum adds: "I can’t say no to them and can’t miss out on being paid. I have to get paid. I know it’s not all about the money but at the moment it is, I have to pay rent and sort things out.”
Therapist Mandy Saligari tells Calum in the pair's candid chat: “It just feels exploitative of you, if that’s true.”
He replies: “The reality of what you’re saying and the raw truth is, I sometimes regret doing some of these things and wish I’d stood my ground more, waiting for the bigger, better, less exploiting picture.
"But I’m not in a position to do that or sit back and wait and hope I don’t have to exploit something to make a living.”
Elsewhere in the show, Calum opens up about how his 'bad boy' reputation saw him abused in the street.
He opens up: “I would walk down the street staring at floor and not wanting people to make eye contact and go ‘There’s that pr**k Calum Best .'"
Calum Best In Therapy airs on Channel 5 tonight at 10PM.
