Marnie Simpson IGNORED doctors' advice to pull out of Celebrity Big Brother summer 2016 despite collapsing just before it began, a report claims.
According to the Daily Star, the Geordie Shore star has been suffering from headaches and eye problems - and was diagnosed with exhaustion on Monday.
However, even though medics ordered her to rest, Marnie decided to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house regardless - as she didn't want to give up her whopping £75,000 fee.
"Marnie has just finished filming the 13th series of Geordie Shore when she started to feel unwell," the newspaper's source explained.
"She went to the doctors on Monday after collapsing with headaches and eye problems. She was diagnosed with exhaustion and the doctor signed her off for at least a week."
The mole added: "Her health is obviously her main priority but a £75,000 pay packet is a huge amount to lose."
Marnie apparently signed her Celebrity Big Brother deal last month, weeks before the medical drama occurred.
She is the fourth star from Geordie Shore - which airs on Channel 5's sister network MTV - to have a go at CBB.
Charlotte Crosby and Scott 'Scotty T' Timlin were both hugely successful, winning the 12th and 17th series respectively - but Ricci Guarnaccio didn't fare nearly as well, getting kicked out of the 14th series in eighth place.
