GERRY has told Laura he thinks she could make at least £10,000 through book and magazine deals when she leaves BB. We asked publicist Mark Borkowski for his views.
He reckons Ziggy and Chanelle can rake in the loot, but he warns: “It’s still quite hard to tell as this year’s bunch seem a little quiet so far. I’m not sure if it’s got the wow factor yet – but we’ll see.”
So who’ll be quids in and who’ll be borrowing a fiver when the show ends?
Chanelle: “She can mount a two-pronged attack. By day she can be Chanelle from Big Brother.
Then by night she can try her hand as a Posh lookalike. There will be lots of magazine and newspaper deals for her – she can constantly change her style.”
Ziggy: “He’s a really good-looking guy and he’s done a bit of modelling already. You would expect the work to come flooding in for him if he carries on the way he has.
Laura: “She could do a Michelle McManus and get the cameras to follow her around as she tries to lose a lot of weight. But she’s not going to make a fortune.”
Lesley: “With her WI and teaching background, she will be popular. She has strong opinions and that could help her cash in. She could write a column for a middle-market newspaper and become an over-60s spokesperson.”
Charley: “She has WAG written all over her. If she gets together with a wealthy guy soon after the show then she’ll be able to cash in quickly.
Gerry: “Gerry could do shoots for a gay lifestyle magazine and with his art background he would be a popular guest on some specialist TV shows.”
Seany: “I don’t think he’s going to set the world alight.”
Shabnam: “She’s declared herself a bit of a faker and people won’t warm to that.”
Emily: “After what she said, she is over. Finished.”
