He's headed for the Celeb BB house

Essex lad Rylan Clark‘s getting a whopping £250,000 to appear on Celeb Big Brother in January, Now can reveal.

The 24-year-old secretly signed a contract for the Channel 5 show the day after he was voted off The X Factor.

A friend reveals: ‘He couldn’t be happier. Rylan‘s always wanted to be a TV star.’

CBB host Brian Dowling‘s let slip: ‘Rylan‘s camp, loud and controversial.

‘Getting him in will be great!’

The first thing Rylan will spend his fee on is more surgery.

He tells us: I hate my body. I don’t want to be so skinny, so I might have some pecs put in.

‘I’m also getting veneers at Christmas. I’ve already had collagen in my lips – I love it!’

Don’t do it, Ry!
