Cheryl Baker rejected the chance to go on Celebrity Big Brother this year because she didn’t want viewers to see her “horrible” temper.

The Bucks Fizz singer has admitted bosses of the reality TV show approached her and begged her to take part in the current Channel 5 series, but she turned the down to protect herself.
She told Metro: “Celebrity Big Brother brings out the worse in people … The programme makes people do things they wouldn’t normally do. Plus I have a bit of a temper. If someone’s being nasty or unfair, I will say, ‘We’ve got to do something about this.’
"I don’t want people to see that horrible side to me.”
The 62-year-old presenter is convinced being trapped within four walls for almost a month would force her to crack.
Asked what makes her lose her temper, she said: “Unfairness and negativity. I hate liars, cheats and spiteful people.
"I was bullied as a child so I will not stand for it.”

While she’s not keen on sharing a house with fellow stars for four weeks, Cheryl wouldn’t turn down the chance to take part in Strictly Come Dancing - even though she can’t dance.
She added: “No one’s asked me. I know the rumour is out there but it’s probably scuppered my chances.
"I’ve been close to doing I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!. I’d love to do Strictly…. I’d be rubbish but I’d do it.”
