Celebrity 'entered Big Brother to pay off credit card debts'

Nicola T allegedly owes £35,000 in credit card debts, which she wishes to pay off before she gets married to footballer Simon Walton, according to reports.

The glamour model and mother-of-one reportedly told a friend before entering the Celebrity Big Brother House: "I'm almost skint. I've just been treating my cards like they are cash but not realising I am not earning what I once did," according to the Daily Mirror.

According to the paper, the 26-year-old used her credit cards to buy furniture for a flat in London's Docklands and to put down a deposit on a BMW.

Reports suggest the glamour model is receiving a fee of £50,000 to appear on the reality TV show, although this has not been confirmed.

This series of Celebrity Big Brother is set to be the last ever on Channel 4. Other contestants include Vinnie Jones, Stephanie Beacham and Alex Reid.
