OutKast star signs up for £300,000
UK CELEBRITY Big Brother will turn into the battle of the rappers – after bosses signed up US star Big Boi from hip-hop group OutKast and Abs from reunited boyband 5ive.
OutKast rapper Big Boi has reportedly signed up to appear in the next series of Celebrity Big Brother in the UK.
Big Boi will be joined in the house by model Sophie Anderton, Loose Women presenter Carol McGiffin and former football manager Ron Atkinson. Abz from the recently reunited boyband 5ive is also believed to be taking part in the reality TV series when it starts later this year. The last US hip-hop artist to appear on the series was Coolio, who finished in third place in 2009.
A source said: “Producers always like to mix things up with an American star and they hope Big Boi will do the business this year.”
It is believed the rapper, who has released two solo albums, including 2012 record ‘Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumours’, has agreed a fee of £300,000 to appear on the programme. A spokesperson for Channel 5 refused to comment on contestants before the series starts.
