Celebrity Big Brother 2015: Katie Price 'gets £500,000' to enter house

Katie-Price

Katie Price is set to scoop £500,000 to enter Celebrity Big Brother 2015.

Channel 5 have confirmed a new Celebrity Big Brother housemate will be joining the house tonight, following the ejection of two contestants in the first week.

However they've refused to reveal their identity yet, with rumours that Katie Price has signed a six-figure deal to join the series.

If Katie does enter there could be fireworks as she's had clashes with a number of other celebs on the programme not least Katie Hopkins.

Katie P slammed the former Apprentice candidate after she criticised her child's name, saying: “Katie Hopkins can shove it.

"She's vile about everyone. It's not worth talking about her."

The Sun newspaper reports that Katie P "can't wait" to enter the house.

“Bosses have been after Katie for years but she’s always said no. But this time they were desperate after axing Jeremy and Ken and went to her with an offer she just couldn’t refuse," an insider said of her half a million pound deal.

The source added to the tabloid this morning: “Katie is keen to settle scores with housemates, particularly Katie Hopkins. She is looking forward to telling the columnist just what she thinks of her.

“Now she has decided to appear she can’t wait to get into the house.”

The Celebrity Big Brother 2015 live show starts at 9PM tonight hosted by Emma Willis.

This evening will also see the first eviction of the series as Alicia Douvall, Alexander O'Neal, Chloe Goodman and Michelle Visage face the first public vote.
