Katie Price will reportedly be entering the Celebrity Big Brother house this Friday.
We’ll believe it when we see it – we’ve be burned badly in the past.
According to The Daily Mail, a ‘well placed source’ claims the 36-year-old has signed a last minute six-figure deal to replace ejected stars Jeremy Jackson and Ken Morley following their unacceptable behaviour.
Big Brother’s Bit On The Side presenter and close friend of the glamour model Rylan Clark hinted back in December that she would be entering the house.
“Kate will do Celebrity Big Brother. I think it’s inevitable that she will go in there, but when the time is right,” he told OK! magazine.
Bosses will no doubt be keen to send Katie into the house on account of fireworks between her and Katie Hopkins being an inevitability.
The two have made no secret of their dislike for one another after the former Apprentice contestant branded the model ‘a wreck of a woman’.
Katie’s possible appointment comes after a week of controversy. Ejected housemate Jeremy Jackson, 34, received a police caution for common assault after he drunkenly opened Chloe Goodman’s robe and exposed her breast as they talked in the toilet.
Ken Morley meanwhile defended claims that he was a racist after using the word ‘n***o’ twice before his dismissal.
Speaking on Loose Women, he said: “I put my hand up and say the word shouldn’t be used but it is an old fashioned word. I apologise unreservedly to everybody who watched that programme.
“I apologise if I disappointed you by saying what I said.
“It was banter in an odd situation but I understand entirely that I’ve upset a lot of people from everywhere in the world … I am not a racist, never have been. I taught black children in London and people everywhere so I apologise.”
Note to Katie: If you are going in, perhaps inject a bit of fun into the house? All this drama is getting a bit much.
