Samantha Mumba turned down this year’s Big Brother despite six figure sum

According to the Mirror Online, the Body II Body singer has been sought after by bosses of the Channel 5 reality show for years but has repeatedly turned them down, despite being offered a “huge six-figure” sum.

They also say she's too busy concentrating on her music and is gearing up to start recording and performing once more.

The 35-year-old has previously taken part in reality TV shows such as Dancing on Ice and Celebrity Masterchef Ireland.

This year's Celebrity Big Brother line-up is set to include Stormy Daniels, Kirstie Alley, ‘Human Ken Doll' Rodrigo Alves and Roxanne Pallett.
