Celebrity Big Brother airs Stormy Daniels’ explosive original VT as they make shock new claims about porn star’s exit

Celebrity Big Brother airs Stormy Daniels’ explosive original VT as they make shock new claims about porn star’s exit

Celebrity Big Brother aired Stormy Daniels’ original explosive VT as they issued a stark warning: “No housemate is bigger than the show.”

Appearing on CBBBOTS, host Rylan Clark-Neal addressed the rumours surrounding her sudden exit from the show. He said that Channel 5 refused the claims that she had asked for more money or that she had quit over pressure from producers for her to act in a certain way. Airing her VT, viewers got to watch Stormy speak about her own media “storm”. The adult film star found fame over claims she was paid for her silence over an alleged affair with Donald Trump. “Everybody loves a good scandal – especially if it involves sex,” she said. “I took on the US president, but now I’m here to take on the Big Brother house.” Viewers got to see Stormy Daniels’ VT this evening

Rylan then claimed that five hours before she was due to enter the house, she said that she only wanted to appear on the launch night – but not actually go into the house. He added: “No housemate is bigger than the show.” Channel 5 claimed she revealed she wouldn’t go into the house just five hours before the launch

This is at odds with her own claims after her lawyer said she pulled out at the last minute because of a row with producers who were pressuring her to act in a way she felt uncomfortable with. Lawyer Michael Avenatti told the Press Association: “It was over a row with producers. Stormy was scheduled to appear on Celebrity Big Brother.

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 Rumours “They insisted she conduct herself in a certain way – they attempted to control her and produce a certain result, which she did not feel comfortable with.” Asked to comment on reports that an “insider” said she quit after demanding extra money, Mr Avenatti responded: “Complete bullshit. They are spreading a false rumour.” However, Channel 5 has hit back.

” Stormy Daniels was booked to appear on the show several months ago and hours before the show was due to go live, informed the production team that she no longer wished to enter the house as previously agreed,” it tweeted. Earlier today it was claimed she pulled out after a fight about money after apparently demanding an extra £100,000 on top of her rumoured £750,000 fee. And that was for just seven days in the house. Then confusingly she sensationally claimed she quit because Channel 5 bosses tried to force her to leave the UK. Stormy pulled out at the last minute

Those claims came to light when Stormy, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, failed to appear on ITV’s Loose Women on Friday despite turning up at the studio ahead of filming. Presenter Kaye Adams said the 39-year-old was prevented from going on-screen because of legal issues. Panelist Jane Moore, who spoke to Daniels off-air, said a custody battle involving her daughter in the US was to blame. “This is her side of the story. Late last night she showed me the emails there was a custody development involving her seven-year-old daughter. She showed me the email. And she thought, I can’t commit to being in the house,” Jane told the show. Stormy with Jane Moore

“She said being a mother comes first. She said, ‘I will go on the live show and to explain why I am not going into the house. That was all agreed and suddenly it wasn’t. “Now I have not had a chance to speak to Channel 5, it has now become a legal situation. She has been told she can’t talk to us. She says about asking for money are rubbish. Whatever she was going to be paid for the live show she was going to donate to charity. “She’s very angry. She wants to come out but she also says that two plane tickets were bought for her to leave at 7.30am this morning. She had not bought them.” Daniels made international headlines over claims the president’s then personal lawyer Michael Cohen paid her hush money days before the 2016 election to stop her claiming she had an affair with a married Mr Trump in 2006. The president denies the allegations.

‘Kick him[Rodrigo] out over N-word’

‘Kick him out over N-word’

The plastic surgery addict, known as the Human Ken Doll, used the racist term twice in a chat with housemates. Show bosses handed him a formal warning over the gaffe and told him: “This word is highly offensive and very likely to cause significant offence.” But fans have claimed not enough action was taken and he doesn’t deserve to keep his place on the show. In 2007, contestant Emily Parr, 19 at the time, was booted out for using the N-word. “Rodrigo Alves using the N-word in CBB is disgusting. But it’s more disgusting that Channel 5 broadcast him using the N-word.” Angry viewer Producers were last night being accused of “double standards” towards celebs by not removing Rodrigo.

One viewer said: “This Rodrigo guy should’ve definitely been kicked out.” Another posted: “How Rodrigo was only given a warning for using racially abusive language disgusts me.” Rodrigo made the comments just hours after arriving on Thursday night. The footage was then aired during Friday night’s highlights show. Some viewers have slammed Channel 5 bosses for airing the footage. One said: “Rodrigo Alves using the N-word in CBB is disgusting. But it’s more disgusting that Channel 5 broadcast him using the N-word. “It wasn’t live. They could have easily bleeped it out. “But no, Channel 5 obviously values controversy over the black community.” However, a close friend of Rodrigo, 35, has defended his behaviour. Life On Marbs star Danni Levy, 34, has claimed the racist term is commonplace in his homeland Brazil. She said: “Many Brazilians use the N-word as a badge of pride. “

In Brazil, the word doesn’t have the same connotations as it does in the US and the UK. “He is Brazilian by birth and upbringing and he has beloved grandparents on both sides of his family who are black. Roddy would never dream of using the word in an offensive way.”

 

‘Dan’s in there for a personality detox’: Body language expert reveals who is already acting in the CBB house

Celebrity Big Brother is back, and 13 stars are ready for us to see the real them – or, more likely, the version of them they want us to see. Launch night saw the celebrities meet each other in the house for the first time – although some housemates already knew one another. Dan Osborne and Gabby Allen shared a kiss on the cheek in the house, months after a rumour suggested Dan had cheated on then-pregnant Jacqueline Jossa with the Love Island star. Both stars denied that they had an affair, and seemed fairly chummy on launch night – but body language expert Judi James reckons that could have been down to Dan’s acting abilities.

When asked Judi if she sensed any awkwardness between the two, Judi said: ‘From him, no. The point with Dan is, he’s been in Towie, these guys can act their way out of any scenario. Overall, his body language looked pretty smug and he’s clearly gone in there to do what I call a personality detox. He wants to show he’s a nice, loveable family man again.

‘I think both of them must be aware of the fact that even doing a kiss on the cheek as a greeting will look like something else on TV. I think it’s rather mean, as Jacqueline has just had his second baby, and she’ll have to sit there watching him with a woman there has been rumours about. I hope they keep apart in an elegant way – I don’t want them to look like they’re avoiding each other or not keeping eye contact, because that would probably be worse. ‘The Towie men and ex-Towie men, when they go in there, I call them body language cockroaches – they manage to stay the entire run, usually without letting themselves down or letting their true personalities come out. They’ve gone in to look good and pretend to be very charming – I imagine that’s what Dan is going to do.’ And it’s not just Dan that Judi thinks is performing.

 

Stormy Daniels ‘QUIT the show just moments before the live show.’

CBB: Stormy Daniels ‘QUIT the show just moments before the live show.’

Adult film star Stormy Daniels pulled out of Celebrity Big Brother after a row with producers, her lawyer says. She had been expected to go into the British reality TV house on Thursday. Her lawyer Michael Avenatti said producers “insisted she conduct herself in a certain way”. Channel 5 said they couldn’t agree “any acceptable conditions” for her to enter.

Ms Daniels hit the headlines after alleging she had slept with President Donald Trump in 2006, which he denies. She was due to appear on Friday’s Loose Women to explain her absence from Celebrity Big Brother, but didn’t appear on that show either. Co-host Jane Moore spoke to her off camera and told viewers she had been told she couldn’t do an interview because of “a legal situation”.

Asked why Ms Daniels didn’t appear on Celebrity Big Brother, Mr Avenatti told the Press Association: “It was over a row with producers. “They insisted she conduct herself in a certain way – they attempted to control her and produce a certain result, which she did not feel comfortable with.” He also dismissed reports that she quit after demanding extra money. “They are spreading a false rumour,” he said. A statement from Channel 5 said: “Stormy Daniels was booked to appear on the show several months ago and hours before the show was due to go live, informed the production team that she no longer wished to enter the house as previously agreed.” A spokeswoman added: “Producers discussed a variety of options with her but were unable to agree any acceptable conditions for her entering the house.”

Celebrity Big Brother: The line-up in full On ITV’s Loose Women, Moore told viewers: “There was a custody development with her daughter late last night. She suddenly thought, I can’t commit because being a mother comes first.” Daniels’ daughter is seven, and going into the Celebrity Big Brother could have isolated Daniels from the outside world for several weeks. Moore continued: “She wanted to go on the [Celebrity Big Brother] live show and explain [what had happened] and that was all agreed, she says, and then suddenly they said, ‘We don’t want you to do any of it.’ “It has now become a legal situation and she says she has been told she can’t come and talk. She says she is furious and wants to be sat here.”

Celebrity Big Brother bosses stopped Stormy Daniels from appearing on Loose Women, according to reports. The porn star was just seconds from going on the show this morning when she was told that appearing on the ITV programme could get her in trouble with Channel 5 bosses. Yesterday the 39-year-old allegedly refused to go into the Celebrity Big Brother house yesterday just minutes before she was due to enter. Despite this, she is still under contract with the show, which means she has to abide by the terms of the contract.  A TV insider told The Sun: ‘Stormy has signed a contract for Celebrity Big Brother. ‘If she breaks the contract they could potentially take her to court. No one wants this to happen of course, but by going on Loose Women she was breaking one of the conditions. ‘Just before she went live on the show, Stormy was warned of the consequences and so pulled out of going on air.’   A CBB spokesman said: ‘Stormy Daniels was booked to appear on the show several months ago and hours before the show was due to go live, informed the production team that she no longer wished to enter the house as previously agreed.’ Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, earlier claimed a US custody battle over her seven-year-old daughter forced her to quit Celebrity Big Brother – not an attempt to push her fee over $1million.

The porn star and stripper, 39, who claims to have had unprotected sex with Donald Trump after spanking him, was set to be the star of what producers promised would be its most-explosive series ever.  But hours before last night’s launch show she quit sparking a war of words between her and Channel 5. CBB insiders claimed it was because the star demanded £100,000 ($125,000) on top of the £750,000 ($950,000) she had agreed for a week’s appearance on the show.  Today Stormy was due to appear on ITV’s Loose Women – the UK’s most watched lunchtime show – but in yet more drama she sat backstage and never made it on screen. Panellist Jane Moore revealed the stripper claims there had been a ‘development’ in the custody battle for her daughter after her husband Glendon Crain filed for divorce. Jane Moore said: ‘She said she couldn’t be in there that long. She couldn’t now commit. She said being a mother is more important’. It is not clear what the new development in the US is, but DailyMail.com revealed eight days ago that Stormy had been awarded joint custody of Caiden, after initially being ordered to stay away from the child and her estranged husband.    Stormy Daniels backstage with Jane Moore on Loose Women before she failed to appear on the show to explain why she quit Celebrity Big Brother An empty chair was left for Storm, who denied her decision not to appear was over increasing her £750,000 fee and claimed it was a custody battle for her daughter Shocker: It was hoped she would dish the dirt on her alleged night of passion with President Donald Trump Michael Avenatti, pictured with his client, denied the  porn star had demanded more cash at the last minute and instead said the dispute was with ‘controlling producers’ Channel 5 have now said they categorically deny what Stormy has said this lunchtime.

 

Liam Payne overhauls album following Cheryl split

Liam Payne is giving his much-anticipated album an overhaul following his split from Cheryl. The 24-year-old was expected to release his debut album in September but now says some of the songs on there “felt from another age”. “I’m determined for my debut album to truly represent me,” he wrote. Liam and Cheryl announced they were going their “separate ways” in July after more than two years together, calling it a “tough decision” to make. The One Direction star appeared to reference the break-up in his tweet announcing the album’s changes. “As you may know, the last few months have seen some big changes for me. “I looked at some of the songs on my album which were done a while ago and they felt from another age. “I’m now back in the studio working hard to finalise the final new songs on the record.”

Since One Direction have been on a break, Liam has achieved two UK top 10 singles, and fans are eager to get their hands on his debut album. They don’t have too long to wait for new music though. The singer used the opportunity to announce an EP, titled First Time, which will feature four new songs. “In the meantime, this EP is a collection of songs that I’m really proud of and want you all to hear,” Liam said.

His fans offered support following his public break-up with former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl.

The 34-year-old, who’s also expected to be releasing new music later this year, and Liam released almost identical statements confirming their split in July. The pair started their relationship in 2016, but it came under heavy tabloid scrutiny. In February, Liam and Cheryl were accused of putting on a “stunt” with an affectionate display at the Brit Awards. Liam later admitted that they had their relationship “struggles”. “Of course you go through different things, and that’s what a relationship is. “But we go through them together as a family and that’s the most important thing for me,” he said.

Announcing their split, the former couple asked that people respect the privacy of their son Bear, who was born in March last year.

Strictly Come Dancing bookers redefine ‘celebrity’ – but you wouldn’t bet against them

Strictly Come Dancing bookers redefine ‘celebrity’ – but you wouldn’t bet against them

The excitement was building over at This Morning today as Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford prepared to reveal who from their team would be doing Strictly Come Dancing this year (well, there’s always one, isn’t there?)

Could it be Holly? (No chance ITV would allow their golden girl to do it, surely?)

Could it be Phillip? (Far too busy presenting his other 567 ITV shows, surely?)

Could it be Eamonn? (No chance the warranty on his new hips would allow it, surely?)

Could it be Rylan? (Too busy with Big Brother, surely?)

Eamonn and Ruth did let slip that the mystery person’s Strictly code name was Goat – which was apt, because they proceeded to milk the big reveal for the entire morning.

By 12.30, the secret was out. The show’s resident medic Dr Ranj Singh is swapping bedpans for jazz hands. Now, I’m not saying I was a tad underwhelmed by this news. But when the Beeb announced Doctor Who would be on screen this autumn, I didn’t think they were talking about Strictly. (NB: His presence will be totally worthwhile if, just once, Tess Daly encourages the voters to “keeeep Ranj Singh.”)

Ranj could be in good company, as the Strictly bookers appear to have redefined celebrity so that it includes YouTube bloggers and local radio DJs. Well, unless they signed Vick Hope from Capital Radio by mistake when they were trying to get Bob from Emmerdale’s wife. That’s their prerogative, of course. And, with a format as strong as Strictly’s, you wouldn’t bet against it being another successful series. I really hope they announce one or two genuine A-listers before the show starts next month, though. Otherwise, on opening night they’ll have to grind all the glitterballs down and turn the blowers on to full.

 

Is Spice Girls reunion going to happen?

Victoria Beckham hints at Spice Girls reunion with cute family snap

David Beckham’s wife took to the official Victoria Beckham Instagram page to post a string of family shots from their summer break. Joined by their four children, the showbiz duo jetted off for a sun-filled holiday to remember. After splashing about in the sea, David, Brooklyn Beckham, Harper, Romeo and Cruz all posed for a family snap. Playing the role of cameraman, Victoria opted to take the pic and keep her infamous pout out of sight.

In another shot, Posh Spice showed off her seven-year-old daughter’s cute pigtails. In a throwback to her musical roots, Victoria captioned the shot: “My very own Baby Spice.” During the height of their fame, Emma Bunton always wore her hair in cute pigtails to play up to her Spice name.

Victoria made Harper’s hair like Baby Spice; Within minutes the Beckham klan’s army of fans were gushing over the shots. “Such an adorable family,” one fan wrote. Another added: “A family full of love. Beautiful pic.” In June reps for the Posh and Becks were forced to deny they were just days away from announcing their divorce. Rumours swirled online that the couple had penned a statement to confirm the end of their 19 years of marriage. A rep told Daily Star Online: “If I spent all my time responding to ridiculous Beckham gossip and rumours there wouldn’t be enough hours in the day. What nonsense.”

He said: ‘It’s true – I’ve signed up for Strictly! I’m hoping to follow in the footsteps of the cricketers who’ve come before me who’ve either won the whole thing or had an absolute ball on the show.  ‘Keeping it under wraps from my kids has been nearly impossible; they are huge fans of the show and I can’t wait to see their faces when I tell them. I don’t have any background in dancing but can do the floss so let’s hope this comes in useful!’ ‘I spent my career enjoying the excitement of performing in front of crowds and cameras. It’s a bizarre pressure that makes you sink or swim and I’ve missed it since having to retire from cricket.’ Thrilled: The Strictly Come Dancing Twitter account also confirmed the news, posting a tongue-in-cheek message that Graeme would be ‘rising from the Ashes’

Legendary: The 39-year-old said he is looking forward to performing in front of an audience again, hoping it will mimic the pressure of being on the cricket field Graeme began his England cricket career in 2008 with a debut against India, and went onto become one of the team’s greatest ever spin bowlers, joining the historic team who took back the Ashes trophy from Australia in 2009.  Since retiring from the sport in 2013, Graeme has also been a regular commentator for BBC’s Test Match Special on Radio 5 Live. He has also been married to wife Sarah since 2010. The couple have a son Willfred, seven, and daughter Charlotte, five.

Speaking about the thrilling opportunity, she said: ‘I’m so excited about being a contestant on this year’s Strictly. I’ve always been such a massive fan of the show so it’s a huge honour to be part of this series…  ‘Dances like Ballroom and Latin are totally outside my comfort zone but I love dancing, it makes people happy – myself included… Twinkle toes: Capital DJ Vick Hope was revealed earlier in the day as the fifth star to hit the Strictly dance floor ‘To be able to perform every Saturday is such an incredible opportunity – I couldn’t be looking forward to it anymore and I will be throwing myself into it, working hard and learning from the judges every week.’

The news comes a day after YouTube star Joe Sugg was announced as the fourth celebrity set to join this year’s Strictly Come Dancing lineup.
