Celebrity Big Brother 2013: Rapper Big Boi, 5ive' Abs join line up

Celebrity Big Brother 2013 eye

American rapper Big Boi and British singer Abs have both agreed to deals for Celebrity Big Brother 2013.

Big Boi, part of OutKast, has reportedly signed up in to take part in this month's series for a whopping £300,000 fee from Channel 5 bosses.

It makes the MC, real name André Patton, one of the highest paid stars this year, with some other celebs getting 'just' £30,000 for their three week stint.

“Producers always like to mix things up with an American star and they hope Big Boi will do the business this year," an insider told The Sun newspaper this morning.

TV chiefs have apparently agreed a deal with Abs from British boyband 5ive too, following their reunion earlier this year on ITV2 series The Big Reunion.

The nineties boy group recently went on tour alongside the likes of 911, Atomic Kitten, B*witched and Liberty X as part of the show.

Also tipped for the line up are football pundit Ron Atkinson, Loose Women star Carol McGiffin and model Sophie Anderton, alongside Geordie Charlotte.

CBB will start straight after the current series of Big Brother ends later this month.
