Caitlyn Jenner offered £1m for Celebrity Big Brother

Caitlyn Jenner has been offered £1 million to appear on "Celebrity Big Brother".

The "I Am Cait" star - who was previously known as Bruce Jenner before undergoing a gender transition - met with show bosses this week, who reportedly offered the huge amount for Caitlyn to make an appearance on the upcoming series of the reality show.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "The bookers are really keen to have Caitlyn in the house. They know she'd be TV gold so they're prepared to break the bank for her. The world has been fascinated by Caitlyn's story and getting her would push ratings through the roof."

Other names the show have been desperate to secure include Ivana Trump, the first wife of US president Donald Trump, who was offered £2 million to appear, with spiritual medium Derek Acorah's name also in the mix.

Meanwhile, it was previously revealed bosses are keen to enlist Hulk Hogan to appear because he is "known for being opinionated".

An insider said: "Hulk would be a big name for the series. He is known for being opinionated. They think he may go for it this year after previously turning it down because of the battering his reputation took."

Producers have reportedly been keen to get him on "CBB" for years without much success but they are hoping Hulk will sign on the dotted line in a bid to improve his reputation, which had been tarnished by his legal battle with Gawker.
