ITV’s Celebrity Big Brother is reportedly pursuing a high-profile addition to their show – none other than Sarah Ferguson, a member of the British royal family. The Mirror has revealed through an ITV insider that the show’s executives are prepared to go to great lengths to secure her participation, including a substantial financial offer.
The source highlighted Ferguson’s potential to be an excellent addition to the show, citing her intelligence, charm, and sense of humor.
Additionally, her insights into the Royal Family and Prince Andrew could significantly boost viewership. While Ferguson has traditionally steered clear of reality TV, ITV executives are optimistic that their proposed offer might sway her decision.
In an effort to secure what they consider a major victory for the show, the Celebrity Big Brother team is ready to offer a lucrative sum of £500,000 to Ferguson for her participation.
This move comes in the wake of Mike Tindall’s participation in ITV’s ‘I’m a Celebrity’ last year, marking a rare instance of a royal family member appearing on a reality show. Tindall is married to Zara Phillips, the daughter of Princess Anne.
