Gemma Collins For 'Celebrity Big Brother'? Suspended 'TOWIE' Star 'Wants Six-Figure Fee' To Enter The House

Gemma Collins is reportedly eyeing a spot in the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house - but only if the price is right.


The Sun have claimed that Gemma previously turned down a place in the forthcoming summer series of the Channel 5 reality show, but has had a change of heart, after being suspended from the cast of ‘The Only Way Is Essex’, over a disagreement.

An insider tells the newspaper: “Gemma has previously been quite vocal about how she turned down ‘CBB’ to stay on ‘TOWIE’.

“But that was before she was suspended from the show and now everything has changed. She is looking at ‘CBB’ as a way back to telly as well as showing ‘TOWIE’ bosses just what they are missing."

However, it has been reported her final decision will be dependent on how big her fee is, with The Sun claiming she’s holding out for a six-figure sum, while Channel 5 are only offering five figures.

The source continues: “It all comes down to money.”

It sounds like Gemma might have some competition, though, as Dan Osborne, her former ‘TOWIE’ co-star, has also been linked with a potential appearance on the upcoming series of ‘CBB’.

Gemma previously appeared on the last series of ‘I’m A Celebrity’, but threw in the towel after just a few days, despite having not undergone a single Bushtucker Trial.
