Though the 25-year-old did consider taking the offer, he told The Sun that he knew ‘in his heart’ the decision to go may have been a career no no.
I asked myself whether people I respect would go on a show and I decided that they wouldn’t… I respect myself for making this decision because they offered me a lot of money. Then, when I decided to go back and say no to the show, the money doubled… But music is my first thing and I love the people that support me and just know in my heart it wasn’t the right thing to do.
It’s clear that Channel 5 couldn’t bribe Tinchy to change his mind even if they threw all the money in the world at him as he told Pappzd that he still wouldn’t go into the Big Brother house for a ‘Billion pounds’.
We think Tinchy definitely saved himself from career suicide. We don’t want another Lady ‘who are you again’ Sovereign moment.
