Celebrity Big Brother 2018: Year of the Woman - male live launch - Andrew Brady

The Apprentice star Andrew Brady was reportedly paid just £10,000 to take part in Celebrity Big Brother 2018 – meaning he now understood to be show’s lowest-paid housemate ever.

According to The Sun, the 26-year-old wanted to do CBB after developing a taste for television on the BBC One business contest – and his enthusiasm meant Channel 5 bosses were able to get him for a bargain-basement price.

“Andrew was desperate to do more TV after The Apprentice,” a source said. “CBB bosses liked him but weren’t going to blow their budget on him.”

It is thought Andrew is now Celebrity Big Brother’s cheapest signing ever, with his fee ranking £2,000 below the previous lowest-paid housemate, Stephen Bear.

The former Ex On The Beach cast member was reportedly paid £12,000-£12,500 to join the eighteenth series in summer 2016, which he eventually won.

However, having been booted out of the house in tonight’s triple eviction, Andrew has ended up with a slightly higher daily rate than Bear. His £10k works out at just over £450 per day, while Bear left on £400-£417 per day.

Other low CBB earners are said to include Coronation Street actor Bruce Jones, who apparently pocketed £15,000 in summer 2013.
