Gary has now revealed that bosses dished out the whopping fee for his appearance on the ITV reality show – and he’s revealed what he splashed the cash on.

Speaking to Times Magazine, Gary confirmed his fee has bought him “half a watch” as he showed off his new Rolex. 

Gary shared: “£100,000. That’s a half a watch. I collect them.”

Since leaving the show, Gary – who is Kate Middleton’s uncle – has his eyes on a major new BBC role on Dragons’ Den.

Insiders said Gary is keen on being one of the Den’s investors for aspiring entrepreneurs.

A source said: “Gary has a number of successful businesses and he wants to use his new platform to help others.

“He has mooted the idea of becoming one of the Dragons and thinks it could be a great move for him.

“Gary is an astute businessman and the idea of helping out new entrepreneurs is something he’s keen to dabble in.

“His time on Celebrity Big Brother showed a different side to Gary.

“He’s a normal guy who’s done well for himself and he wants to try and give something back.

“Gary has his Points Of View podcast where he talks about business but he thinks being on Dragon’s Den could be a bigger platform for him.”

Last night, the final five CBB housemates battled it out to take home the crown.

Ibizia Weekender star David Potts was announced as the winner.

David, 30, beat former X Factor judge Louis Walsh, This Morning star Fern Britton, Corrie favourite Colson Smith and Strictly professional dancer Nikita Kuzmin.

David was shocked to win the show and told viewers before leaving the house: “I feel shocked, on top of the world, I cannot believe it, I’m feeling slay, I’m ready to take on the day…get me on that runway.

It comes after Gary pulled out of the Celebrity Big Brother final after his niece Kate revealed she is undergoing treatment for cancer.

Gary shared on his X platform yesterday: “Following today’s news, I will not be attending tonight’s Celebrity Big Brother final.

“I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to my fellow Housemates and to everyone involved in the making of this brilliant show.

“I hope you all enjoy your special night.”
