Perez Hilton turns down Celebrity Big Brother All Stars because they won't pay enough

Celebrity Big Brother 2015

Despite teasing a comeback to Celebrity Big Brother All Stars, Perez Hilton WON'T be returning to the house.

And he says it's because Channel 5 just weren't offering him enough cash.

Channel 5 previously announced a brand new twist to the next Celebrity Big Brother with a mix of former Celebrity Big Brother housemates as well as new faces on the line up.

Perez was quickly rumoured to be a part of the show following his previous stint inside the house in 2015.

Now speaking out about taking part, Perez has told fans: "For those of you who sweetly keep wanting an update or confirmation.... Yes, I was asked to appear on next month's #CelebrityBigBrother"all-stars" edition in the U.K.

"Despite my better judgement, I said I would do it... IF the price is right!"

He continued: "My participation on that show in 2015 was truly traumatic for me and I need to be prepared for a second experience to be just as bad or worse!

"The price wasn't right for 2017, but the door is open for me to appear again in the future - IF they open their wallet!"

Writing on his Instagram page, Perez cheekily added: "Signed, the most talked about housemate in the history of Celebrity Big Brother, Perez Hilton #KnowYourWorth"

Perez is the latest celeb to rule out a CBB return, following most recent winner Stephen Bear, Blue's Lee Ryan and X Factor's Honey G.

But past 'all star' housemates who could be returning include Coleen Nolan, Lauren Harries, Jedward, Calum Best, Angelique 'Frenchy' Morgan, Katie Price, Nicola McLean, American couple Speidi - Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag - and Jasmine Waltz.

And new stars rumoured for the cast include Shameless actor Jody Latham, The Apprentice's Jessica Cunningham, TOWIE's Danielle Armstrong, reality TV regular Bianca Gascoigne and snooker ace Ronnie O'Sullivan.

The Celebrity Big Brother 2017 start date is 9PM, Channel 5 on Tuesday, January 3.
