Alicia Douvall has described Celebrity Big Brother housemate Perez Hilton as "intense" and "emotionally draining" but says she still likes him.

US gossip blogger Perez has been the most controversial and talked-about housemate on this series of CBB and has even been dubbed the 'most hated man in the UK' thanks to his behaviour and antics.

Alicia, however, has defended Perez in a new interview, saying she finds him entertaining and suggesting housemate Katie Hopkins has goaded him at times.

Speaking to ITV's This Morning, ex-model Alicia said: "At the end of the day, he is entertaining. And Katie does probe him a lot and he doesn't go down the same name-calling route as she does, so for us, Perez was a better option.

"But he is very intense and it's emotionally draining and it does take it out of you. I liked Perez and I still like him."

Alicia had been part of Perez's group of friends in the house which included Nadia Sawalha and Patsy Kensit.

The mother-of-two was evicted from CBB on Friday night after losing out in the public vote to Nadia, Perez and Calum Best.

She said of her experience: "It was intense and so stressful and literally, we were in survival mode. They've said to me that they've never had a house where most housemates just want to go home."

Alicia said she found Perez entertaining.

Of those up for eviction, both Nadia and Perez had said they wanted to leave, while Alicia and Calum had wanted to stay. Alicia had said she was annoyed with Katie Price for not saving her from eviction when she had the chance, as Alicia had made it clear she wanted to stay.

"I went in there for the money," said Alicia, "and obviously to have a new fanbase and introduce myself to a new audience."

Alicia was the second celebrity to be evicted from the show. Ex on the Beach star Chloe Goodman was the first, while Jeremy Jackson and Ken Morley were booted off the show and Alexander O'Neal asked to leave.

The most recent twist has seen Perez stage a fake walkout and Big Brother tell the housemates he will not be returning. They are unaware he is currently living in a secret room and spying on everything they do!
