Celebrity Big Brother star Lionel Blair may be out of the house, but he's already planning a tour of Essex with TOWIE's Sam Faiers once the show ends!

Lionel, 82, who was the third celebrity to be evicted on Friday night (17 January), said he's made friends for life during his time in the house.

Lionel was all smiles today as he arrived at ITV following his eviction on Friday

Speaking to Aled Jones, Lorraine Kelly and Richard Arnold on ITV's Daybreak, Lionel said: "I got on so well with the youngsters. I said to Sam 'When you go out, can I come down and come out with you?' so I'll go out with them."

We can imagine Sam giving Lionel a tour of Essex and taking him to popular hotspot Sugar Hut!

Lorraine then suggested that Lionel should think about starring in TOWIE. Lionel, who has previously admitted to being a fan of the Essex-based reality show, replied: "I should really!"

Lionel also had plenty of praise for Made In Chelsea star Ollie Locke, who he was handcuffed to during the first few days of entering the house.

"I'd love Ollie to win," said Lionel. "He is the nicest, sweetest guy and my wife wants to adopt him!"

Lionel, who received plenty of cheers from the crowds after his exit on Friday, also talked about his friendship with N-Dubz star Dappy.

"The wonderful thing was, I met Dappy. Now when would I meet a Dappy? He calls me Lord Lionel Blair and and I call him The Duke of St Albans!"

Giving his opinion on the love triangle drama between Lee Ryan, Casey Batchelor and Jasmine Waltz, Lionel said it will "go on and on". He added: "Lee is a young man who thinks 'there's a lovely girl, ooh there's another lovely girl.'

"I read things this morning that I can't believe happened. If I was there, it wouldn't have happened."

Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
