'I'm A Celebrity': EastEnders' Big Mo Actress Laila Morse Heading To The Jungle

Posted: Updated:

'Eastenders' loudmouth Big Mo - actress Laila Morse - is the latest celeb signed up to appear on this year's 'I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here'.

The 68-year-old - who declared herself bankrupt earlier this year - is reportedly being paid £60,000 to head to the jungle for the ITV show's return on 17 November.

A source told The Sun: “Big Mo is a big signing because her real persona is not a million miles away from her EastEnders character.

“She may be 68 but she’s still pretty solid so should manage the Bushtucker Trials.”

Laila declared herself bankrupt in August under real name Maureen Bass.

Her reported salary on 'EastEnders' was £80,000 before Big Mo’s role was reduced.
