Stormy Daniels has reportedly been offered £750,000 by Celebrity Big Brother

Stormy Daniels is an American porn star currently at the centre of controversy surrounding president Donald Trump.

The 39-year-old has been involved in a legal dispute with the US president over allegations she had an affair with him in 2006. He has denied the fling, which has been the focus of many US news stories.

The Daily Mail reported earlier this year that Channel 5 have offered Stormy - real name Stephanie Clifford - up to £750,000 to take part in Celebrity Big Brother.

"This year's show is about people in the spotlight, who have hit a tough time in the public eye," a source claimed. "They are looking for people who have had dramas or issues in their life and are bouncing back.

"They are so keen to have Stormy on the show that they have put it back from June to August."

At the time, Stormy's lawyer Michael Avenatti insisted she had "no interest" in taking part.

He said: "We get hundreds of people approaching us every day. She has no interest in doing it. She is not going to do it."

But now The Sun newspaper claims that Stormy will be going into the house.

"Stormy is the biggest signing for this year’s show and she’ll make headlines around the world," a source insisted, “Bosses were so keen to get her on board and it’s a fantastic opportunity for her."

Other names linked to the Celebrity Big Brother 2018 cast already include headline grabbing footballer Jermaine Pennant and Kieran Hayler, the estranged husband of former Celebrity Big Brother winner herself Katie Price.

More rumoured names are Celebs Go Dating's Charlotte Dawson, TOWIE's Pete Wicks and TV presenter John Leslie.

Channel 5 confirmed today (Wednesday) that Celebrity Big Brother will be back in August.

The new series has been named 'Eye Of The Storm', with show bosses teasing: "All of the celebrity names entering the house will have been caught up in their own media storm.

"And now, the celebrities are once again putting themselves in the public eye and this time they have a lot to prove."

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 will air on Channel 5 this summer.
