Hollywood star Vinnie Jones offered million dollars to team up with Gazza.
London, Dec. 31 (ANI): Ex-Wimbledon hard man, now a movie star Vinnie Jones has been offered a million dollars to team up with old footie rival Paul Gascoigne in Celebrity Big Brother.
According to The Sun, Jones was contacted by the show's producers with a lucrative offer to "keep an eye" on former England hero Gazza in a ratings-winning ploy for the BB house.
Vinnie, who played Newcastle in 1988, has told chiefs he will sign the 620,000-pound deal tonight.
A pal of Vinnie, 44, told The Sun: "He's been offered a massive chunk of cash. He was planning to take January off - but $1million for three weeks' work was difficult to turn down."
Gazza, 42, has had a series of consultations with a psychologist to ensure he can cope with the pressure of the Channel 4 show.
The star, who also played for Lazio, Rangers and Spurs, has battled drink and drugs since hanging up his boots in 2004.
Meanwhile ex-bricklayer Vinnie has built up a fortune and moved to the Hollywood Hills after a string of roles in blockbusters, including the third X-Men film. (ANI)
