Keith Chegwin has finished in fourth place in tonight’s Celebrity Big Brother final.
Joining Emma Willis for a post-eviction interview, Keith said: “I’ve always watched Big Brother and thought I’d love to be on it and see if I could cope with it. It has been a nightmare from beginning to end. Saying that I’ve actually quite enjoyed it which is weird isn’t it? 70 per cent has been hell but the other 30 has been bloody brilliant.”
Of his easy-going nature in the house, he said: “I sat on the fence until it was right not to. I did have a few gos at people and I quite enjoyed it. I was biting my tongue but eventually I thought I’m going to have my say because people were getting a bit over the top.”
Reflecting on being told to ‘Eff Off’ by Kav, he revealed: “When you’ve got somebody who’s drunk all the time, you want to look after him in a way. I didn’t like to see him get into that sort of state. It did affect me that he swore at me like that but it was his drunken moment.”
Discussing the rivalry between Katie Hopkins and Perez in the house, Keith said: “It’s like watching bloody ping pong. It really was crazy. Perez disappointed me by the end and I don’t want to know him. He didn’t care about people’s feelings and it just wore very thin with me eventually.”
