'Nasty Nick' Bateman Pulls-Out Of BB10 Appearance

Nicholas Bateman, who was ejected during the original series of UK Big Brother for cheating, has pulled-out of Big Bro's 10th Birthday celebrations at the last minute.

The former city trader was set to return to the BB House today (actually, it's not the same house, but we're being pedantic!), to take part in one of the most memorable tasks from the first series back in 2000.

However, the Daily Star has reported that Nick pulled-out because he hadn't been offered any cash, although we understand that he was eventually offered a token fee by the show's producers. But it rather looks like Nick didn't know what he was actually letting himself in for.

For, confirming that Nick had decided against making an appearance on Big Brother 10, an insider told us: "Nick didn't want to take part in the assault course again and was annoyed that we'd planned it for him. But as a one-time national hate figure who's made plenty of money from the show, what did he expect Big Brother to do? Make it easy for him?"

During his original appearance, Nick bragged that he'd been in the Territorial Army, a complete lie, and was made to look like a fool when he struggled with the monkey bars on the assault course.

The 41-year-old was subsequently thrown-out of the House for writing notes and showing them to his peers in a bid to influence their voting and win the £70,000 prize money.

Fittingly, it's Nick's nemesis Craig Phillips – the eventual Winner of BB1 – that will replace him, despite the fact that the builder and TV celebrity has bad-mouthed the show this year, calling for it to be scrapped in its current format.

Still, it'll be great to see the cheeky Scouser back, it's just a shame that we'll miss-out on the opportunity to boo and hiss at one-time real-life pantomime villain Nick one more time.

If we were in charge, we'd have paid Nick however much he wanted and put him up-against Craig – a fitness fanatic to this day – in the army-style assault course, just to see him get humiliated all over again!

To see who else is coming into the House this week to take part in the various tasks, please refer to this article.
