Iain Lee says he'll enter the Celebrity Big Brother house - if the money was right.

The recent I'm A Celebrity camper has admitted "due to certain circumstances" he would sign up for more reality TV.


Discussing I'm A Celebrity and Big Brother on his talkRADIO show (via The Sun), Iain said: “I had been offered it four times.

“This time due to certain circumstances I approached them

“I know it’s a freak show, if the money was right I’d do Big Brother.”

Last month it was said that Iain - who used to front Big Brother's Bit On The Side spin-off show - had signed up to I'm A Celebrity to cover costs for his ill mother.

It was reported that Iain's mother is sadly suffering from severe MS and around the clock care is costing Iain £1,500 a week.

"We can’t afford to keep her there. It’s very upsetting," Iain was quoted as telling The Sun newspaper before joining the jungle.

"His mum’s care home costs are a great concern for Iain," a source added. "He’ll be able to use a proportion of his jungle fee to stabilise the situation.

“He’s made no secret of the fact he can’t wait to get home to his boys but knowing the money will be a huge help to his mum is stopping him from walking out.”

Iain finished I'm A Celebrity in third place. It was Toff who won I'm A Celebrity 2017, beating Jamie Lomas into second place.


Celebrity Big Brother meanwhile will start this evening, January 2, on Channel 5 from 9PM.

We'll have to wait and see whether or not Iain will swap the Aussie bush for the Borehamwood bungalow...
