The 41-year-old, Sally Bercow who failed last year in her effort to become a Labour councillor in Westminster, has justified her verdict to participate in Celebrity Big Brother by promising to donate a big sum to charity. The new series has been moved from Channel 4 to Channel 5 and Mrs Speaker has hired public relations expert Max Clifford to represent her while she is on the show. The wife of the House of Commons Speaker John Bercow, will be paid £60,000 to take part in the reality television programme as per prediction, out of which she will keep £40,000 and give £20,000 to Clifford.
It has been revealed by the Aides that though Mrs Speaker will pocket as a ‘very small contributor’s fee,’ she will still donate £100,000 to charity Ambition of Autism, of which she is a patron. She has 3 children and the eldest, Oliver is autistic. John Bercow told his wife not to appear on Celebrity Big Brother that starts today as the show was “completely dreadful” but she ignored him and accepted a deal. Other celebs supposed to be involved in the big relaunch comprise Ryan Giggs, The Only Way is Essex star Amy Childs, and former girl band singer Kerry Katona and Imogen Thomas.
