Samantha Mumba 'turned down' a bonkers amount of money to be on Celebrity Big Brother

As one of the country's biggest pop sensations of the noughties, Samantha is reportedly high on producers' contestant wish list.

We'd love to see her in the house but it looks pretty unlikely as it's now been revealed that she doesn't want the stress of living in a televised house for weeks on end.

Samantha has been offered bucketloads of money to appear but she's always said no, a source revealed, having spoken to others who have taken part in the past.

"She was on their list of people to ask every year but she kept turning it down – so they don’t bother asking anymore," the source told The Sun.

"Their last offer was well into the six figures, but she’d never do it. It’s just not for her.

“Obviously she’s not adverse to reality TV, having previously done Dancing on Ice and Celebrity Masterchef Ireland.

“She knows a lot of people who’ve done Celebrity Big Brother and they’ve all said how stressful the environment can be.”

The line-up for this year's show was revealed earlier this week. Among the stars taking part include Roxanne Pallett, Dan Osborne, Kirstie Alley, Gabby Allen and Stormy Daniels.
