Bill Oddie has revealed that he turned down the opportunity to appear on Big Brother because he has "principles."

Well known for being a bird watcher and one of The Goodies, Oddie told The Two Mikes: "The Celebrity Big Brother House - no offence to them or anybody else but I, for two seconds, I had to go 'argh' when you ask what the fee is, because it’s ridiculous."

He explained that what he would have been paid for the show would have bought him "a couple of footballers" but he didn't join the show because he said: "I have principles."

Oddie also revealed that he's turned down I'm A Celebrity a couple of times because he's "not going on television eating wildlife."

He added that discussions have taken place about bringing The Goodies back but it would have to be something less strenuous, as asking them to do the same would be like "asking us to put the England World Cup-winning team back together."
