Channel 5 spends £6 million on Celebrity Big Brother offers - rumoured housemates!

Big Brother 2011 eye

Channel 5 has spent a whopping £6 million luring some of the biggest names to this year's Celebrity Big Brother house. The list of rumoured housemates - and their offers - varies wildly, from £2 million offered to Charlie Sheen to just £20k offered to The Saturdays star Vanessa White.

Charlie Sheen was the first celebrity to be rumoured for Big Brother 2011, with the US actor top of CHannel 5's ideal Celebrity Big Brother line up. Vanessa White meanwhile, the youngest of the five Saturdays stars, was linked to the show earlier this year - but we're not quite sure she'd be the most interesting of contestants!

As has been rumoured since they appeared on The X Factor back on 2009, Jedward are also set for the show, apparently offered the second highest fee of £1 million. Kerry Katona and Mike Tyson are said to have been offered £250,000 and £200,000 fees respectively, Tyson however has already dismissed the rumours, saying he'd never take part in the show having enough drama to deal with already!


Completing the list of big celebs is Bobby Brown, the 80s R&B star has been invited onto the show in return for a £200,000 fee.

Kerry's mum Sue Katona has reportedly been offered £50,000 to enter the house alongside her mum, say Now magazine, while The Only Way Is Essex star Amy Childs has been offered £70,000 to join the first series on Channel 5.

A rumour that - if true - is sure to cause tension is Kerry Katona's ex Mark Croft, who is said to have been offered £20,000 to take part, while bosses hope £50,000 each will be enough for Natasha Giggs and Helen Wood to reveal all about their affairs in the Celebrity Big Brother house!

Other stars linked to the new series - which starts in mid-August - include 90s singer Sonia, Karima El Mahroug, Karima El Mahroug and Andy Gray.
