Celebrity Big Brother: Bruce Jones 'lowest-paid housemate ever'

By
Bruce Jones is reportedly the lowest-paid Celebrity Big Brother housemate of all time.

The former Coronation Street actor is earning £15,000 for his appearance on the Channel 5 show, while his former on-screen wife Vicky Entwistle has a deal worth £150,000, the Sunday Mirror claims.

Jones, who played Les Battersby on the ITV soap, is thought to have turned down £55,000 to take part in the reality show last year.

However, he agreed to be reunited with Entwistle, who played Janice Battersby, due to financial troubles that have seen him become a mechanic.

The 60-year-old has previously spoken of his battles with alcohol and depression following his axe from Corrie in 2007.

He was sacked after revealing plot lines and insulting fans to an undercover reporter. He also received a suspended jail sentence in 2010 for drunkenly yanking the wheel of his wife's car on a dual carriageway.

Jones and Entwistle were forced to share a double bed together during their first night on Celebrity Big Brother after their fellow contestants voted them the most famous housemates.
