Davina Signs £1m Pay Deal

According to the Sunday Mirror, Davina McCall has signed a new deal to host Big Brother 8 worth a whopping £1 Million 'quid.

This doubles her previous deal and means that the 39-year-old will earn over £70,000 a week during the new series. Not a bad gig then, considering she only has to turn-up once a week and do about an hour's work!

Actually, that's not entirely fair, but seeing as it would take the average person over 40 years to earn that sort of cash, she'd better be worth it.

And Channel 4 clearly feel that she is, as a show insider said about the giant pay-packet, "Davina's worth every penny. She's the face of Big Brother. It just wouldn't be the same without her".

Indeed, fans tend to agree: a recent BBO Poll asking 'Should Davina McCall be the Host of Big Brother 8?' established that 80% of fans think she should definitely return.

So, that's a resounding vote of confidence from the fans, despite the fact that Davina has been accused of not thinking for herself or asking enough probing questions during the eviction interviews in recent years.

There have been rumours that the mother-of-three is set to quit hosting BB after the forthcoming series, but it's hard to believe that she might give-up such a good gig in order to pursue other work, especially as her BBC chat show flopped last year.

Nevertheless, we'd be interested to hear who you think could replace the bubbly brunette if push-came-to-shove. Why not e-mail and let us know, and perhaps fans could discuss the issue in our Discussion Forum once it goes live?

Davina returns to Channel 4 at 9pm on Wednesday the 30th of May 2007 to front the live Launch show, but she'll also front a psychology show on Sunday nights called 'Big Brother On The Couch'.

Can't wait!
