Huge crowds flocked to the relaunch of the BPerfect Megastore in Belfast City Centre on Thursday.

Love Island winner Ekin, 29, was pictured beaming alongside the music manager, 71, despite them clashing in the CBB house after Ekin put Louis up for nominations.

But the pair put the drama behind them as they hugged, smiled and threw up peace signs to the cameras at the event. But according to The Sun, it was a huge pay day for Louis.

A source told the publication: “Louis has been away from the celeb party scene for a long time but he’s hot property now he’s been on CBB.

“He was paid a massive £12k just to show up last night. He got a huge fee for CBB, so it’s no surprise he can ask for loads. Ekin was also there as an ambassador for the brand, so was showing Louis the ropes.”

OK! has contacted Louis’ representative for comment.

Ekin’s early exit from CBB came after she dramatically turned on Louis by putting him up for eviction in a brutal face-to-face nomination.

The pair were initially being good friends in the ITV reboot but Ekin-Su’s betrayal during face-to-face nominations led to her downfall.

Despite having become quite close with the former X Factor judge, in a surprising moment, she called Louis “lazy” in front of everyone while opting to nominate him.

Reports of Louis’ hefty appearance fee comes after he got candid about his earnings for his time in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

He told the Sunday Independent : “[ITV] convinced me. They said I was going to be safe; it was going to be fun, that I would probably win it.”

However, Louis says that he wasn’t really interested in winning, as he continued: “They said they really, really wanted me. They kept on at me, and still I said no, because I was scared. I don’t want to be a celebrity. It’s a fake world. I have no desire. I like music and staying under the radar.”

Despite originally turning the show down, Louis was later convinced when ITV offered him a huge pay cheque for taking part.

However, Louis isn’t the only one who got paid handsomely for their time on the reality show. His fellow X Factor co-star Sharon Osbourne also appeared alongside him in the famous house for a nine-day stint as CBB’s first ‘celebrity lodger’.

Some sources claimed that Sharon would be paid a huge £100,000 per day. This means that she would have received a staggering £7,000 per minute of air time. Over the series’ first nine episodes that Sharon appeared in, she was on screen for a total of two hours and 13 minutes, out of the overall eight hours.
