RAPPER MC Hammer could join Celebrity Big Brother - as show bosses splash out on bigger names.

Producers have decided to slash the number of celebs in the house to allow them to spend more on individual stars.

New housemate? ... Pamela Anderson

The new series of the Channel 4 show, which begins on January 3, is set to star just ten celebrities.

This is down from a record number of 14 in 2007.

That was the year the show was rocked by the Jade Goody and Shilpa Shetty race row.

Producers have decided to dig deep to make the show's last series go out with a bang.

Nineties hip-hop legend Hammer, 47 - real name Stanley Burrell - would be one of the main acts.

And talks are underway to get the rapper - best known for his trademark Hammer pants and hit U Can't Touch This - on board.

In running ... Boy George

Cash-strapped Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson, 42, is also in negotiations to appear on the fly-on-the-wall show. She could earn a whopping £250,000.

Last year's winner Ulrika Jonsson walked away with £175,000 - and she was the highest-paid celeb of the 2008 series.

A show source said: "Previous CBB series have suffered because there have been too many celebs who were just not that famous.

"Producers want the final series to be the best ever - and are determined to push the boat out by signing up the biggest names they can.

"But to get big names, you have to spend big money - which means there will be less for minor stars."

Other celebrities rumoured to be in the running include eighties singer Boy George, 48, and notorious Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss.

Notorious ... Heidi Fleiss

Fleiss, 43, shot to fame in 1993 when she was arrested for running a prostitution ring which was reported to have had many famous clients.

Producers have a number of tricks up their sleeves to help them make the last series the best so far.

But the programme will face tough competition from ITV1's Dancing On Ice and BBC1's So You Think You Can Dance.

January's CBB will be the last because Channel 4 has decided to axe Big Brother due to falling ratings.

Next summer's main Big Brother will also be the final one. Channel 4 is looking for new shows to fill the slot.
