Celebrity Big Brother 2014 lineup: Julie Burchill gets £300,000 offer


Writer Julie Burchill has been linked to the new Celebrity Big Brother 2014 line up.

The columnist is set to follow in the footsteps of Samantha Brick and Liz Jones with a deal said to be worth anywhere between £250,000 and £300,000.

At least, if she accepts.

According to The Sun newspaper, Julie wants to make sure she's paid more than writing rival Liz got earlier this year.

However after speaking about the deal with friends, it could see producers decide to ditch her from the housemates line up.

A source told the tabloid today: “Julie would be great on the show as she is mouthy and feisty.

" But part of the deal is you are not allowed to tell people of the offer – the fact she has means producers may not now go ahead.”

Some of the other celebrity (sort of) names linked to the new CBB lineup already this year include headline hitting rent boy Adam Brookes and daughter of the late comic Les Dawson, Charlotte Dawson.

Also rumoured are Hollywood star Gary Busey and BGT maniac Lettice Rowbotham.

CBB stars on Channel 5 next month.
