A source said today that Cheryl would now be taking part in the second series of Celebrity Big Brother, set to air after the Olympics on Channel 5.
“Her character of downtrodden Heather is so different from the actual actress," a source said this morning. “Cheryl is hilarious. She’s got a really great sense of humour and producers wanted to sign her up the minute she was written out of EastEnders.”
The Sun reports that Cheryl, who used to play Heather Trott on the BBC One soap, will be getting a huge deal worth £175,000.
