Jedward

Former X Factor stars Jedward set to scoop £500,000 a piece for taking part in Celebrity Big Brother on Channel 5 when it hits screens in August. According to The Sun this year the rumour about the duo is true, having finally struck a deal with the group's manager Louis Walsh.

The tuneless twins have even rearranged some of their tour dates in order to fit the summer series around their surprisingly busy diary.

A source told The Sun today: "The lads can't believe their luck - a cool half a million each."

Channel 5 is said to be "digging deep" for big stars for Celebrity Big Brother 2011, with a wish list including Charlie Sheen and former Harrods boss Mohamed Fayed.

Other names linked to the show include Imogen Thomas and Rachel Stevens.
