Celebrity Big Brother: Best Bits specials on 5* - Iain Lee

Former Celebrity Big Brother spin-off presenter Iain Lee says he’d be up for becoming a housemate on the show following his success on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Iain was a late entrant in the ITV jungle contest’s latest series, sparking a so-called ‘bullying’ scandal after he spoke of feeling isolated by other contestants.

He finished third in its grand final earlier this month, losing second place to rival Jamie Lomas by just 0.09% of the public vote.

Now Iain has revealed he’s interested in returning to Big Brother, a show he used to present – but this time as a contestant.

Speaking this week on his first talkRADIO show since returning to the UK, the broadcaster revealed that, during a group discussion in the Australian bush, most of his I’m A Celeb campmates said they wouldn’t do CBB.

However, Iain is so keen that he suggested himself to Channel 5 bosses.

“I had been offered it four times,” he revealed (quotes via The Sun). “This time, due to certain circumstances, I approached them.

“I know it’s a freak show, but if the money was right, I’d do Big Brother.”

Iain’s first regular role on Big Brother came in 2008, when he teamed up with Gemma Cairney to present online radio show Big Ears.

In 2013, he was a regular panellist on weekly spin-off Bit On The Psych, and in 2014 he was promoted to become its official co-host alongside Rylan Clark-Neal.

He departed Big Brother later that year, before Psych was eventually axed.

Iain’s ‘Late Night Alternative’ show airs weeknights at 10.00pm on talkRADIO.
