Justin Lee Collins considering £100,000 deal to appear on Celebrity Big Brother
Comedian and television presenter Justin Lee Collins who was found guilty last month of harassing his ex-girlfriend is considering trying to resurrect his career with an appearance on Celebrity Big Brother.
The 38-year-old is reportedly thinking over a £100,000 deal to appear on the Channel 5 reality television show.
He was found guilty of harassing his former partner Anna Larke during a campaign of sustained emotional and domestic abuse and sentenced to 140 hours of unpaid work as part of an 18-month community order, as well as paying the £3,500 prosecution costs.
But a Channel 5 source told The Mirror: He has done wrong but he has done his community service and going on the show could be the break he needs.”
“People will be able to see him 24/7 and see what he is really like and then make up their minds if he has changed.”
Collins could not be reached for comment.
