Carole Vincent has revealed that she is still collecting dole money and signing on at the Jobcentre after leaving Big Brother 8.
She told the Daily Star,"I am completely skint. I lost a lot of money going into the house and still had bills coming in."
Carole was reportedly forced to give up housing and tax benefits during her time in the house, which amounted to £3,000.
She added, “I know quite a few of the younger finalists like Ziggy, Chanelle and the twins are on their way to becoming millionaires, but I'm not jealous. There's no lucrative deals waiting for me."
"If I had won the show, I would only have used a bit of the money to pay bills and go on a holiday, the rest I would have given to charity."
