(huffingtonpost.co.uk) Lil Kim has reportedly signed up for the new series of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, becoming one of the most expensive contestants ever.
Lil Kim is set to enter the reality TV house when the new series kicks off later this month, after bagging a megabucks deal.
The Daily Star has reported that Kim is expected to get a similar fee to Katie Price and the late David Gest, who received a rumoured £500,000 for their appearances in January 2015 and January 2016 respectively.
A source told the paper: “Producers are thrilled they’ve finally got her. It’s taken a lot of cash but they are confident she will be worth it.”
News of her signing comes after ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ star Helen Lederer was linked to a spot on the show.
Other stars tipped to appear on this summer’s ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ include 80s popstar Samantha Fox, ‘Gogglebox’ pair Steven Webb and Chris Steed, ‘Mob Wives’ cast member Renee Graziano, former ‘X Factor’ reject Chloe Mafia, and Ben Innes, best known for taking a photo with a plane hijacker on an EgyptAir plane.
It’s also been suggested former ‘I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!’ contestants Spencer Matthews and Lady Colin Campbell could take part.
