David Gest is set to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house, according to latest reports.

Michael Jackson's friend David, who is also the ex-husband of Liza Minnelli, has apparently signed a mega money deal to take part in the new series kicking off in January.

According to Mail Online, the 62-year-old, who appeared on the 2006 series of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, will be one of the show's biggest ever signings, as he is set to cash in on a $1million fee (more than £600,00) to star on the show.

A source close to the show also told The Mirror: "He's signed on the dotted line so this series will be full of anecdotes about his close friends Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston.

"Bosses have been trying to get him for the last few series but he turned down several offers."

CBB kicks off in January, and following the latest house redesign, celebrity housemates will be transported to a striking and theatrical setting which echoes the vaudeville theatres of a bygone era.
