Perez Hilton has reportedly signed up for 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

The US gossip blogger will be appearing on the upcoming series of the Channel 5 reality TV show after negotiating a £150,000 deal to participate.

Show bosses were keen to sign up Perez, 36, due to his huge online influence - he has 5.8 million Twitter followers and his popular PerezHilton.com blog - and hope he will spill the beans on some of his public spats with A-listers including Fergie and Lady Gaga, who accused Perez of "stalking" her after he rubbished her music.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Perez is a huge influence online, with a website that's one of the biggest in the world.

"He's also making a name for himself outside the web, having appeared on various telly shows and had run-ins with well-known celebrities.

"Perez loves Britain and the producers of CBB can't wait for him to star in one of the most talked about shows here."

It is thought that Perez - whose real name is Mario Lavandeira - will head to the UK after Christmas ahead of the show's January 7 start date.

Other stars rumoured to appear on the upcoming series include former 'The Apprentice' star Katie Hopkins, TV presenter Keith Chegwin and notorious womanizer Calum Best.
