According to the Daily Star, Channel 5 bosses are willing to “break the bank” to secure her as a housemate. 

A source told the paper: “The bookers are really keen to have Caitlyn in the house.

“They know she’d be TV gold so they’re prepared to break the bank for her.

“The world has been fascinated by Caitlyn’s story and getting her would push ratings through the roof.”

During her visit to the UK, Caitlyn made many media appearances to promote her new autobiography, and also attended the British LGBT Awards, where she was awarded the HuffPost UK Loud and Proud prize. 

However, the star was the victim of vile transphobic slurs as she left the venue at the end of the evening. 

The Metropolitan Police said officers were called following the incident and that enquiries are ongoing.
