Stormy was set to appear on ITV’s Loose Women Friday afternoon to discuss her withdrawal from Celebrity Big Brother, but cancelled that at the last moment too


                            'I would rather set myself on f****** fire': Why Stormy Daniels walked off Celebrity Big Brother just hours before launch

After causing enough controversy at home with claims of an alleged affair with US President Donald Trump, adult film actress Stormy Daniels headed across the Atlantic to rekindle her career on British television. 

But reality TV creators in Britain were probably not ready for the torrid storm the pornstar would bring along with her.

Daniels lived up to her name and walked off the set of Channel 5's Celebrity Big Brother before rejecting her scheduled appearance on ITV's Loose Women. Daily Mail brought forth details surrounding the extraordinary chain of events that led to the incident.

According to the media outlet, Daniels allegedly shouted at Celebrity Big Brother executives just two hours before the series was due to be launched Thursday evening. 

"I would rather set myself on f****** fire than do your f****** show," she said.

According to sources, Stormy was furious that producers of the show had prepared a special White House set and cast her as the "President", although she was allegedly being paid over $638,000 for her appearance. The broadcasts were reportedly also going to feature a Mexican-US border wall.

Daniels was reportedly angry that the series would largely be focusing on her controversial claims that she slept with Trump. Although producers had initially assumed the setting would amuse the pornstar, it heavily backfired on them.

It is also being said that the 39-year-old was enraged when the staff rifled through her underwear in her suitcase, that she was due to carry to the CBB house, to make sure she wasn't carrying any banned items to the location.

Another incident that shocked staff at Elstree’s The Village hotel was when Daniels threw a tantrum after there was a delay in getting chips she had ordered to her room. The hotel is just a mile from the Big Brother house, reportedly.

According to one waitress who works at the hotel where the contestants were housed before they would enter the reality TV setting, Stormy "threw a huge tantrum because her chips weren’t delivered. Someone must have forgotten to put the order through."

"The next thing we knew was that she had left and not gone into the Celebrity Big Brother house."

Another source who, according to Daily Mail, was close to the show, said: "We have seen some meltdowns before but never anything on this scale. Literally everything had been built around Stormy. She was the 'get' of the series and as such the props were built at great expense, but she didn’t like that.

"The fact is that she has been negotiating this appearance for months and now everything is having to be rewritten. This has caused nothing less than a nightmare and it has cost Channel 5 a fortune."

Channel 5 is now considering legal action against Daniels to recover some of the costs that would take to rewrite the season, considering that Daniels had negotiated her $638,000 deal — the largest fee ever charged by a contestant to star for just one week of the notorious series.

It has been suggested that child custody issues were to blame for Daniels’s shock withdrawal. But the show source added: "There was no talk of custody battles until the very last minute before we went live. It has been going on for weeks, so if it was so significant why did she get on the plane?

According to previous reports, the adult actress's meltdowns were attributed to her ongoing child custody battle with husband Glendon Craine. However, the source close to the show added: "There was no talk of custody battles until the very last minute before we went live. It has been going on for weeks, so if it was so significant why did she get on the plane? Her tantrums really were something else, extraordinary."
