Jamie O'Hara has been forced to take part in 'Celebrity Big Brother' because he's struggling for money
Jamie O'Hara is struggling for cash.
The 30-year-old footballer - who has played for the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Fulham and Millwall - agreed to enter the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house because he needs the money after his divorce from ex-wife Danielle Lloyd chewed into his bank balance.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: "I lost quite a bit in my divorce so it's always nice to be offered money. At the end of the day we're here to make a living. I lost a few quid. This hopefully gives me an opportunity to build a future for me and my kids."
And, although things have finally been settled between the former couple, Jamie is adamant he'll never let a woman get her hands on his cash ever again.
When asked what he is looking for in his next partner, Jamie - who is currently single - said with a laugh: "One that doesn't take all your money."
Jamie is hoping his stint in the infamous house, which he entered on Tuesday (03.01.17) night, won't tarnish his sporting career as he'd like to get back into football.
He explained: "I'm probably making it harder for myself by doing this show. But at the end of the day, I've got to look at it as a positive and I'd love to play football again.
"I wake up every day dreaming of playing football. I've been really unlucky with injuries, and my personal life has also made things quite difficult as well, because managers look at me as a whole package."
Jamie split from former model Danielle, with whom he has children Archie, six, and Harry, five, in 2014 after he allegedly had an affair with an office worker.
The hunk has remained tight-lipped on their relationship but bosses are no doubt hoping that he'll open up about their shocking split while inside the abode this month.
