Are you sick of the celebrity culture in the UK and the constant celebrity editions of TV Shows? Many stomach them owing to the fact that the money made goes to good causes but it has now been revealed that stars such as Jonathan Ross, Jimmy Carr and Corrie’s Catherine Tyldesley recieved up to £5,000 to appear on charity celeb editions of Catchphrase according to a whistle blower.
A TV source said: “It came as a surprise to find out the celebrities were getting paid when the show appears to be just for charity. Obviously they are giving their time for good causes, but viewers probably wouldn’t expect the stars to be paid.” The show was brought back in 2013 with Stephen Mulhern as the host. This is certainly not the first time overpaid celebrities have done paid charity work.
