Celebrity Big Brother bosses' failure to uncover Tila Tequila's pro-Nazi views is set to leave Channel 5 out of pocket to the tune of £100,000 - as she is getting to KEEP her full fee.

Tila was one of the fourteen stars who entered the show's UK vs. USA-themed series in August - but she was kicked out after less than a day as her Nazi sympathising came to light.

The 34-year-old - real name Thien Thanh Thi Nguyen - had infamously described Hitler as "not a bad person" and released a picture of herself in Nazi uniform while posing with a gun outside Auschwitz concentration camp.

At the time, Channel 5 insisted in a statement that it "did not know about the views and attitudes Tila had expressed" - even though they are on her Wikipedia page.

It was later reported that Tila would sue for her fee if she wasn't put back in the house - and it seems her plan has worked, as according to The Daily Star, a 'contractual loophole' means the broadcaster will have to stump up her £100,000.

"Channel 5 has tried to get the money back, but can't because on paper it's her money," a source said. "Technically she didn't break any rules in the house, so she hasn't voided her contract.

"It's very controversial, given Tila's comments. Viewers will think she went home empty-handed."

Indeed, the Campaign Against Antisemitism - which was among those that complained about Tila's involvement in CBB - was disappointed at the news.

Speaking to the newspaper, the watchdog's spokesman Jonathan Sacerdoti said: "It is unfortunate that Channel 5 now has to pay a Hitler sympathiser a large sum under the terms of her contract.

"This should be a lesson to producers who make the mistake of casting an anti-Semite in their programmes."

Producers will no doubt now be looking forward to the new series of CBB, which begins on Tuesday at 9.00pm.
