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.”
