Sam Fox has accepted a mega-money deal to appear in this year's 'Celebrity Big Brother'
Sam Fox has reportedly been offered a mega-money deal to join this year's 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The former glamour model has snubbed the chance to take part in the Channel 5 show every single year but has now finally agreed to join the infamous house for three weeks after bosses slapped down an eye-watering amount of cash.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Every year Sam's name is bandied around in ideas meetings and every year they try hard to get her but she turns it down. But they've finally managed to tempt her on board for the new series.
"She's never lost her earning power even more than 30 years since her Page 3 debut but anyone would struggle to turn down hundreds of thousands."
However, the 50-year-old beauty is concerned the show will affect her mental health as she sadly lost her partner Myra Stratton in August last year following a battle with cancer.
A source said recently: "Sam has had a really hard year but she's a strong woman. She knows 'Celebrity Big Brother' is going to be tough mentally but she's ready to tackle it."
Meanwhile, the blonde bombshell - who became a Page 3 girl at the tender age of 17 in 1983 - is no stranger to reality TV as she also appeared on 'Celebrity Wife Swap' in 2008, 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' in 2009 and 'Celebrity Come Dine With Me' in 2010.
Meanwhile, several stars have been tipped to be joining the next series including former Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding, 34, who bosses are hoping will spill the beans on her famous friends including bandmate Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, who is dating One Direction hunk Liam Payne.
'The Only Way is Essex's Lewis Bloor, 'Geordie Shore's Marnie Simpson and Beth Chapman are also on the hit list.
'Celebrity Big Brother' will return to screens on Thursday (28.07.16) on Channel 5 at 9pm.
