"She thought, "I can't commit".

Moore continued: "She wanted to go on the [Celebrity Big Brother] live show and explain [what had happened] and that was all agreed, she says, and then suddenly they said, 'We don't want you to do any of it'".

Adams said negotiations for Daniels, 39, to appear on the show began at 8am on Friday morning, and that she arrived in the studio's building just after 12pm.

Lawyer Michael Avenatti told the Press Association: "It was over a row with producers".

"Everything in the house was ready for her!"

Avenatti also dismissed reports that an "insider" said Daniels quit after demanding extra money.

You can't predict the weather - nor, it would seem, Stormy Daniels!

"They tried everything to persuade her to stay and no one could work out why she'd fly all the way from the U.S. to London before deciding to drop out".

Her departure has apparently left producers particularly red-faced as the Celebrity Big Brother launch show set had been created to reference the 39-year-old's alleged affair with the President.

"She has been told she can't come on and talk to us", Moore said.

Daniels' daughter is seven, and going into the Celebrity Big Brother could have isolated Daniels from the outside world for several weeks.

Channel 5 has since released Daniels' VT for the new series in which she said: "I'm now involved in a huge media storm involving the United States president and it has been shown on every news outlet around the world and has drastically changed my life".

"CBB" bosses later offered their side of the story in a statement issued to HuffPost UK.

While Daniels may not be going into the house, there's already been plenty of controversy with the so-called Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves receiving a final warning from Big Brother for using a racial slur.

Celebrity Big Brother producers issued a statement on Twitter on Friday (August 17).

Singh Kohli was unveiled at the mystery contestant amid speculation that Meghan Markle's half-sister Samantha could be taking part.

The theme of the new series is Eye Of The Storm, and each of the housemates has been involved in their own "media storm".
