Celebrity Big Brother was almost extended
Bosses of 'Celebrity Big Brother' asked the housemates if they could extend the series for another month following its rave reviews
'Celebrity Big Brother' bosses wanted to extend the current series for another month.
Producers of the popular reality TV show have been so impressed with this year's ratings that they asked the remaining housemates - Kim Woodburn, Nicola McLean, James Cosmo, Coleen Nolan, Jedward and Bianca Gascoigne - to extend their stay in the infamous house but the plans have been scrapped after the contestants refused.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Four weeks is a long time to spend away from your family and friends, and while the housemates have loved their time on the show, they feel it's time to leave now. Nicola in particular is missing her boys so much and just wants to see them. Everyone has a contract which includes the option to extend their stay, however if they do not wish to continue after 3rd February, then they don't have to."
This year's installment has been one of the most explosive yet after 'How Clean Is Your House?' star Kim joined the abode and began warring with the majority of housemates.
The blonde cleaner took aim at 'Geordie Shore's Chloe Ferry within the first two hours of joining the show earlier this month after the busty brunette jumped into the pool and accidentally splashed the 74-year-old star, who was sat in her dressing gown.
She then claimed former 'Strictly Come Dancing' professional James Jordan as her next victim after they locked horns over Jedward and their childish behaviour.
Security was forced to intervene during her blazing row with Jamie O'Hara after she branded him an "adulterer" following claims he'd cheated on his ex-wife Danielle Lloyd.
Glamour model Nicola has been one housemate that Kim has lashed out at numerous times during her stay as the two hot-headed females fought for the top dog position.
And, in last night's (01.02.17) show, Kim hit out at actor James for being a "coward" after he failed to stick up for her when she was targeted by Nicola and Bianca.
'Celebrity Big Brother' will come to an end on Friday (03.02.17).
