Stormy Daniels appeared on Monday’s “Loose Women” to have her say after she backed out of appearing on “Celebrity Big Brother” at the last minute.
The 39-year-old, who was reportedly offered £750,000 (around $1.3 million CAD) to appear on the U.K. reality TV show, explained after quitting due to an ongoing custody battle in the U.S.: “I didn’t really know what I was getting into. I was offered a lot of money. It was just crazy.”
Claiming she’d originally agreed to appear on the show for one day to record a piece in the diary room, Daniels then revealed: “We agreed to that, the live show started, I stayed at the hotel. They came back a couple of hours later and said ‘You’re either going to go on, stay in the house and follow the contract to a tee, or we’re deporting you at 6 in the morning.’
“They said: ‘You have to leave, and we have to put you back on plane, back to your point of origin. You have to leave the country.”’

Daniels’ appearance comes after the American porn star, who claims to have had an affair with U.S. President Donald Trump in 2006, was rumoured to be one of the contestants on the new season of “CBBUK”, The Sun reported.
“Stormy is the biggest signing for this year’s show and she’ll make headlines around the world,” a source told the British tabloid. “Bosses were so keen to get her on board and it’s a fantastic opportunity for her.”
Deadline then reported that Daniels pulled out of the show at the 11th hour, arriving for preliminary taping sessions but ultimately refusing to enter the house after failing to come to terms with producers.
“Reports suggested that she initially had agreed a fee of close to $1M to appear on the monthlong shoot before backing out of that deal and agreeing to a lower amount of $250,000 to stay for one week,” Deadline stated at the time, adding that Britain’s Channel 5 declined to comment.
Daniels previously alleged that Trump paid “hush money” to silence her about the affair and said she was “threatened” to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Trump denied these claims, and in April 2018, Daniels filed a lawsuit against the president on defamation charges for calling her statements lies.
Daniels would have shared a house with “Cheers” and “Scream Queens” actress Kirstie Alley, the “human Ken Doll” Rodrigo Alves and former British soap star Roxanne Pallett.
The new season of “CBBUK” is built around an “Eye of the Storm” theme and includes contestants who have been involved in some sort of public scandal.
A teaser which was tweeted from the official “CBBUK” Twitter account previously hinted at Daniels’ involvement in the show.
