Celebrity Big Brother 2014 lineup: White Dee gets £100,000 deal

White Dee

Benefits Street star White Dee is now set to get £100,000 to appear on Celebrity Big Brother 2014.

The 'celebrity' - who is famous for, er, getting benefits - has been given a lot of media work since the Channel 4 series.

It means she's not able to stop receiving the state handouts for her depression... and appear on Big Brother.

She said: “I’m still on my medication but I have got enough to enable me not to claim benefits.”

Dee - real name Deirdre Kelly - had been rumoured to have been offered a £60,000 deal earlier this year but now she's set to become one of this year's highest paid stars.

"Dee will be brilliant on Celebrity Big Brother. She’ll play to win," a pal of her's teased to The Sun newspaper this morning.

A cheeky source added to the tabloid: “Dee will be great on Celebrity Big Brother.

"She is used to sitting around the house all day long and being paid for it.”

Some of the other celeb names linked to the upcoming Celebrity Big Brother line up 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, writer Julie Burchill, Made In Chelsea's Stephanie Pratt and BGT maniac Lettice Rowbotham.

Celebrity Big Brother 2014 will start in August on Channel 5, straight after the current series concludes.
