Christopher Biggins is set to receive just half of his £100k fee for appearing on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ earlier this year, according to reports.

The showbiz veteran was ejected from the house early during the summer series, after making a series of controversial comments about bisexual people, as well as an anti-Semitic joke.

Months later, it’s now been revealed that Channel 5 bosses and Biggins have come to an agreement over his payment, with a source telling the Mirror: “The production company were under no breach of contract by not honouring his full fee.

Biggins kept a low profile after exiting the competition, and it was months before he appeared on our TV screens again, eventually popping up on ‘Good Morning Britain’ to discuss ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’.

His return to the limelight came just two weeks after Ofcom ruled on the ‘CBB’ drama, deciding that Channel 5 should not be investigated for screening his comments about bisexuality.

‘CBB’ will return to our screens in January, with an ‘All Stars And New Stars’ special
