Celebrity Big Brother 2014 winner Jim Davidson cashes in

Jim Davidson (Celebrity Big Brother 2014)

Jim Davidson is enjoying a huge windfall after winning Celebrity Big Brother 2014.

Speaking last week about his ups and downs, Jim told how he had less than £1,000 to his name before entering the CBB house at the start of the year.

“After £300,000 of lost earnings and £100,000 lawyers’ fees, I got a phone call saying there would be no further action,” he said of his legal troubles last summer.

And while his rumoured £300,000 Celebrity Big Brother fee no doubt helped out, he's set to rake in up to a £1 million over the next year.

After his appearance on the Channel 5 series tickets for Jim's tour have tripled and he's been inundated with offers for work and gigs.

“It shows how much Jim is still loved by the public and how much they want to see him," Jim's manager said. “He really is back in the spotlight."

He added to the Daily Star newspaper: "There have been lots of offers coming in.”

On Monday night 1.3 million tuned in to watch a special one-off documentary on Channel 5 about Jim's career.
