Reality star Kerry Katona has reportedly agreed to a whopping £250,000 deal which will see her enter the Celebrity Big Brother house on Channel 5 next month. According to Sunday tabloid The People, Kerry and show bosses agreed a deal which would enable Kerry to pay off her debt.

Inside sources claim that producers are hoping Kerry will spill all about hr battle with booze and her "car-crash marriages" when the new series starts in mid-August.

"She is totally up for Big Brother, she can’t believe her luck," a friend told the paper. "This has come at the right time as the money will get her out of a deep hole.


"She’s so skint she can’t even get a contract for a mobile phone."

It was previously reported that Kerry had become skint and had spiralling debts of around £350,000 owed to her former management.

The former Atomic Kitten singer previously failed to make it onto the celebrity series on Channel 4 after failing the strict psychological tests, but now she's either a lot better and prepared for the pressure.

“She’s sorted her life out now. She might be broke, but she’s got her head straight. The tests should be no problem," the friend added. “She’ll be great fun in the BB house, but you suspect bosses secretly hope she’ll have a meltdown.”

Celebrity Big Brother returns on Channel 5 in August followed by a normal run of Big Brother in September.
