A Big Brother star was left “scared” after being approached in a bar by a man who thought she was a prostitute.
Lisa Appleton, 49, was in West Hollywood, Los Angeles, enjoying a night out when the awkward encounter happened.
A source told The Sun: “Lisa was dancing in the club when a man approached her and asked to buy her a drink.
“After getting her the most expensive red in the house he started quizzing her about what she did for work, before asking her if she wanted to model for some of his friends.
“He even took pictures of her so she assumed it was a legitimate conversation.”
She was then “gobsmacked” when he offered her 10k to do the deed.
The man is reported to have said to her that he had “friends in Calabasas who pay well – £10,000 for sex or anything you want”.
The source said: “Lisa was utterly gobsmacked to be mistaken for a prostitute and scared that she was being set up for something more sinister.
“She was very clear to him that despite being known for her outrageous photoshoots she has never and would never work as an escort.
“While she might have struggled over the years and lost everything, Lisa has her boundaries and being paid for sex is one of them!”
Lisa is currently living in Los Angeles to try and forge a career for herself.
It was reported yesterday that Lisa’s plea to enter I’m A Celeb has fallen on deaf ears because the show’s bosses don’t know who she is.
At first, a source close to the BB star told The Sun: “Only a few people knew that Lisa had been in touch with the I’m a Celeb team.
“They were interested, but in the end they said they weren’t going to offer her a spot this time.”
But ITV producers have since said that they were never in talks with her.
A source from I’m A Celeb said:”I’m sure she’s a lovely lady, but she’s just not high profile enough for the show.” Awkward!
Lisa became famous after appearing on Big Brother in 2008 with her then boyfriend Mario Marconi.
