Bailiffs threatened to catch Dappy straight from the Celebrity Big Brother residence over an unpaid bill, leaving his management with no choice but to pay them off with £6000 so they would leave him alone.

Bailiffs have been looking for the N-Dubz star over his debt with no success, so were more than pissed off when they saw the pint-sized rapper on their TV screens living it up and getting off with girls on the reality show.

A source told the Sun:

His management got an irate call from bailiffs who said they were fed up hunting for him.

His appearance on CBB had basically been winding up the creditors – so they were planning to go to the house to serve him with court papers.

His people were worried it would have made him look ridiculous – so paid the bill.

Boo to his management that would’ve made for good TV! Dappy screaming as big muscly men angrily exposed his debts to them.

Hopefully Dappy, who was reportedly facing bankruptcy, won’t have to deal with any more bailiff threats, as his appearance on Big Brother got him a reported £100,000.
