Will Celebrity Big Brother's Roxanne Pallett be paid after walking out?

Celebrity Big Brother Summer 2018

Roxanne Pallett has quit Celebrity Big Brother - but will she still get her fee?

It was announced today that Roxanne had quit Celebrity Big Brother in the wake of her 'altercation' with Ryan Thomas.

A statement from Celebrity Big Brother confirmed this morning: "Roxanne decided to leave the CBB house late last night after deliberating for two days with some sensitive issues she felt strongly about.

"She has now been reunited with her fiancé and family and thanks everyone for their support during her time in the show."

So do the celebs who leave Celebrity Big Brother still get paid?

Although officially contract matters aren't commented on, former CBB housemate Angie Bowie previously claimed walkers can still get some of their fee.

Speaking in 2016 after she left the house early in the wake of David Bowie's death, Angie said: "You don't get paid your full fee, there's like a clause, you get a per day rate."

According to The Sun newspaper, Roxanne was the highest paid of this year's stars with a supposed fee of £750,000.

As for the other celebrities, Ryan Thomas is said to be getting £500,000 for his appearance while Jermaine Pennant is reportedly getting £200,000, together with Sally Morgan and Kirstie Alley.

£100,000 is the reported fee of recent evictees Chloe Ayling and Natalie Nunn, with reality star Dan Osborne said to be receiving £60,000.

Love Islander Gabby Allen and rogue trader Nick Leeson are seemingly this year's lowest paid stars with fees of £40,000.

However that is still well above what some names have been paid in the past.

Corrie actor Bruce Jones is rumoured to have got just £15,000 back in 2013.

And in 2016 it was claimed that winner Stephen Bear had been paid only £12,000.

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
