David Cassidy is the latest celebrity rumoured to be heading for the Celebrity Big Brother House next week with reports stating he’ll receive £100,000 for his appearance.
David, who’s 66-years-old shot to fame playing Keith on The Partridge Family and has sold over 30million records worldwide. In 2011, he was a contestant on The Celebrity Apprentice.
The Sunday People claims Channel 5 bosses have offered David big money to join the reality show, with a source saying he’ll be like a “human grenade” in the House.
The source explained: “TV bosses want him to go in there like a human grenade and say what he thinks.
“He is renowned for his straight-talking. Plus he’s been through the mile – divorce, bankruptcy, three drink-driving arrests and rehab, so he’ll have a lot to talk about.”
Other names rumoured to be going in with David include rapper Lil’ Kim, former Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding, Lady Colin Campbell, Union J’s Jaymi Hensley, former Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews, Mob Wives Renee Graziano and Absolutely Fabulous star Helen Lederer.
