Andrew Brady is 'Celebrity Big Brother's lowest paid celebrity EVER'

Celebrity Big Brother 2018

The Apprentice star Andrew Brady is said to have got Celebrity Big Brother's lowest ever fee to appear this series.

Andrew, who was evicted in tonight's live show, reportedly received a fee of £10,000.

The amount is below the £12,500 given to Stephen Bear who won the show in 2016.

A show insider told The Sun newspaper: "Andrew was desperate to do more TV after The Apprentice.

"CBB bosses liked him but weren’t going to blow their budget on him”.

During his time in the house, Andrew made no secret of his desperation to stay.

"You need to be selfish in this," he said in last week's highlights.

Andrew explained: "I am in here to boost a career in an arena, and I'm one of the few who will admit that.

"I am in here to try and boost a career by which I feel I can succeed at."

As for how much the rest of the celebrities on the CBB cast are paid, the numbers can vary wildly depending on their profile (and agent!)

It's understood that Ann Widdecombe is one of this year's highest paid celebs, with a reported fee of £100,000.

While it's a lot of cash, it's far from the highest fee given out over the past 20 series of CBB.

Previous huge payouts have included £500,000 for Jedward, £400,000 for Katie Price and £600,000 for the late David Gest.

Fees for lessser known stars can be as little as £10,000.

Alongside Andrew and Bear, some of the lower amounts paid out have included the reported £15,000 to Corrie actor Bruce Jones back in 2013.
