Bobby thinks Mario will win this year's Celebrity Big Brother

Speaking last night at The Pyjama Store's VIP annual Celebrity Soiree held at Millennium Hotel, Mayfair, Bobby told Reveal: "I'm 'Team Mario' all the way and I'm really backing him to win. He's doing Essex proud and I hope he brings the crown home!"

On TOWIE, viewers saw Mario admit to cheating on ex-girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh seven times, but Bobby said Mario is now showing a softer side.

"He does appear as a love rat to people sometimes, but he's a really nice person and he's shown that in the house.

"I mean, he's never done anything to me personally and people have seen another side to him, he's popular in there.

"He's come across really well, and if Mario doesn't win, I want Charlotte Crosby to win it because I love her," he continued.

Meanwhile, Bobby also dished his thoughts on the other housemates.

"I really thought Louie Spence was going to come in there and be the Louie that we all know, but I don't think he's come across as well as people had hoped.

"When he talks about the other housemates with Carol McGiffin, he comes across quite bitchy, in a nasty way."

"As for Lauren Harries, she's quite controversial and she seems to be getting quite a lot of stick, but I love her. She's being ganged up on a little bit. I just want to go and give her a cuddle."

Bobby, who is an avid fan of Big Brother, wouldn't mind going into the house himself one day. "I'd love to go in there," he said. "I've been watching the show for so long and I just love it.

"If I was in there, I'd be in their sl*t dropping in the Diary Room, and I'd be like 'let's have it'!"
