Julie Goodyear (foto) avrebbe firmato un contratto che la porterebbe a diventare una dei protagonisti di Celebrity Big Brother per la modica cifra di 300 mila sterline. Una delle leggende viventi della soap opera sarà tra le prime persone che varcheranno la soglia della nuova casa messa a disposizione da Channel 5 per girare la nuova edizione del reality show.

Bosses are apparently hoping the 70-year-old will provide similar entertainment to Denise Welch, who won the show in January.
“Julie may be getting on a bit but she’s certainly game for a laugh,” a source told the paper. “Denise proved that the Corrie stars bring in a decent audience and don’t mind poking fun at themselves and having a laugh.
“Julie is keen as mustard to get in the house and is already talking about winning.”
Meanwhile, Clary has allegedly secured £325,000 for his stint on the show, with producers hoping he displays his controversial humour.
“He is not afraid to speak his mind and it’s usually in a comical way. Big Brother is an adult show so he won’t get any flak for coming out with outrageous comments. That’s why he will be getting so much cash,” the insider remarked.
Former EastEnders actress Cheryl Fergison has apparently agreed a £175,000 fee, while ‘beautiful’ journalist Samantha Brick has been offered £50,000.
This year’s second series of Celebrity Big Brother, as ordered by Channel 5, will air in late summer after the regular series.
