Anti-gay Ex-UKIP candidate Winston McKenzie to join Celebrity Big Brother
The new lineup for this year’s Celebrity Big Brother has been announced, and it includes adamant homophobe Winston McKenzie.
A former UKIP PPC for Croydon North, Winston McKenzie previously claimed that same-sex adoption is child abuse said he was ‘dismayed’ to find out that Kellie Maloney is transgender.
Despite being purportedly ‘sacked’ by the party, Croydon Council confirmed last April that Mr McKenzie was once again UKIP’s PPC in the seat of Croydon North, as nominations closed.
McKenzie is now the English Democrats’ candidate for London Mayor.
He is set to join the CBB house, as the names and payments of the housemates are leaked.
McKenzie is set to be paid £60,000 for his appearance on the show, just 10 percent of the fee apparently afforded to David Gest.
The producer who used to be married to Liza Minnelli is expected to receive £600,000 for entering the house.

He will be joined by fellow ex-Eastender Daniella Westbrook, X-Factor finallist Christopher Maloney, model Angie Bowie, and a host of other soap and reality TV stars.
