Julie Goodyear joins Celebrity Big Brother?

Rumours are rife online, after a story in the Sun, that Coronation Street veteran Julie Goodyear will be going into the next Celebrity Big Brother house.

The paper reports that Julie, who played Corrie's Bet Lynch, has snapped up a £300,000 fee to enter the house when the show returns in August.


Anyone know if this is true? I have my doubts she'd humiliate herself like that.

A show source said: "Julie may be getting on a bit but she's certainly game for a laugh. Denise (Welch) proved that the Corrie stars bring in a decent audience, and don't mind poking fun at themselves and having a laugh. Julie is as keen as mustard to get into the house and is already talking about winning."

The series is now set to run twice a year on Channel Five after proving a hit with viewers.

She did appear on Celebrity Fit/Fat Club a few years ago and came across as quite a nice woman. I hope this is true, as Frosty can't wait!

No way are they paying her £300,000. That's about £1 for every viewer.
