I'm sure we're all very excited to finally get our fix of housemate drama, bombshell revelations and downright chaos ahead of tonight's Celebrity Big Brother.

Now, ever since the full list of all the rumoured celebs allegedly set to appear on the Celebrity Big Brother 2024 lineup was released last week, fans have been eagerly anticipating exactly what will unfold under the watch of the all-seeing eye this season.

Since then, the jaw-dropping amount of dosh one particular star on the lineup will cash in for her appearance on the ITV programme has been revealed and - heads up - it's a staggering six figures.

The rumoured housemates this year include the likes of Kate Middleton's uncle Gary Goldsmith, TV presenter Fern Britton, former X Factor judge Louis Walsh, Love Island winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, Strictly Come Dancing pro Nikita Kurzman and Ibiza Weekender star David Potts.

Expected to join them are Dragon's Den star Levi Roots, Heartstopper actor Bradley Riches, social media star Zeze Millz, actress Marisha Wallace, Coronation Street actor Colson Smith, Real Housewives of Cheshire star Lauren Simon and former X Factor judge, Sharon Osbourne.

With all that said however, an ITV spokesperson previously told Tyla: "Any names are at this point pure speculation and viewers will have to tune in to see who will be entering the Celebrity Big Brother house."

But according to a source, the former X Factor judge is gearing up to 'inject some drama'.

"She isn’t afraid to say what’s on her mind and has a wealth of showbiz stories up her sleeves," the source told The Sun. "She is guaranteed entertainment and sure to be a hit with viewers."

The source also revealed to the outlet: "Bosses did all they could to get Sharon and finally reached a deal she’s happy with.

"Sharon will inject enough drama but without her original price tag that was just not feasible.

"Producers cannot wait to see her reunite with Louis and know that it will be TV gold."

So, what will the 71-year-old be receiving after providing viewers all over with 'TV gold'?

Celebrity Big Brother will be premiering on ITV1 and ITVX this evening (4 March).

Well, according to The Sun, Sharon is set to be paid a massive £100,000 a day as she enters Celebrity Big Brother as a guest housemate.

The outlet adds: "It is understood bosses reached a £500,000 deal with Sharon to enter the house for up to five days, after they found her fee for the whole three-week series too expensive."
