With just hours to go until this year’s first ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ kicks off, the salaries of the stars rumoured to be taking have reportedly leaked - and it makes for some interesting reading.
Although this year’s full line-up has yet to be officially confirmed, Liza Minnelli’s ex-husband, music producer David Gest is said to be getting the biggest pay cheque after negotiating a whopping £600,000 deal to appear.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian’s best friend (which is truly stretching the term ‘celebrity’) Jonathan Cheban is reportedly getting £300,000, which proves it’s not what you know, but who.
