White Dee coy about Celebrity Big Brother 2014 line up rumours

Benefits Street 'star' White Dee has refused to comment on rumours of a spot in the Celebrity Big Brother 2014 house.

It was previously reported that Dee - real name Deirdre Kelly - had been offered a £60,000 deal to appear in the Channel 5 series come the summer.

According to The Sun on Sunday newspaper, Dee - who also appeared on Channel 5′s own The Big Benefits Row this month - has already accepted a big offer.

But the money means that the ‘celebrity’ will have to give up her benefits.

A source told the tabloid: “Channel 5 bosses were desperate to sign up Dee. They think she will be brilliant.

“But the move is definitely a controversial one because anyone who is claiming benefits can only do so legally if they are not working.

"Dee will be earning money in one of the most public ways possible. So unless she stops collecting her benefits, her actions will interest the authorities.”

Speaking about the reports on This Morning earlier in the week, Dee was very coy.

"There is a rumour..." she erred to hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes.

Dee added: "Yes.. a rumour in the paper..."

We're not sure if that's a yes or a no!

The new series of CBB is set to air in August after a series of the 'normal' show in June.
