PORN star Stormy Daniels sensationally pulled out of two TV shows yesterday.
The 39 year old, famed for an alleged affair with Donald Trump, announced she was quitting UK’s Celebrity Big Brother two hours before Thursday night’s series premiere, reportsThe Sun.
She was then booked on another British series, Loose Women, to explain her decision but failed to appear despite turning up to the studio.
Daniels was reportedly being paid $AU1.3 million to appear on Celebrity Big Brother, which would have made her Britain’s highest-paid reality star.

There were rumours she had asked for extra cash, after previously scaling down her contract to appear for just seven days of the three-and-a-half week run.
Daniels had reportedly been reluctant to board her flight from the US, saying she was uncomfortable with producers’ requests.
But her lawyer Michael Avenatti yesterday insisted she was unwilling to be “controlled” by Celebrity Big Brother bosses.
He said: “It was over a row with producers. They insisted she conduct herself in a certain way.
“They attempted to control her and produce a certain result, which she did not feel comfortable with.”
Asked to comment on claims she quit after demanding extra money, he responded: “Complete b******.”
Show executives did not deny a row with producers.
They said Daniels told the production team “hours” before the show was to air that she no longer wanted to participate as agreed “several months” earlier.
A spokeswoman added: “Producers discussed a variety of options with her but were unable to agree to any acceptable conditions for her entering the house.”
Loose Women presenter Kaye Adams said Daniels was prevented from going on-screen because of legal issues.
Panellist and Sun columnist Jane Moore, who spoke to her off-air, said a custody battle involving her daughter in the US was to blame.
The show team tweeted the no-show was “due to reasons out of our control”.
She was expected to fly back to the US last night after skipping a morning flight booked for her by TV station Channel 5.
Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, made worldwide headlines after claiming President Trump’s then-personal lawyer Michael Cohen paid her hush money days before the 2016 election to stop her saying they had an affair in 2006.
Mr Trump denies the allegations.
