Celebrity Big Brother's Nadia Sawalha has admitted she "100 million per cent regrets" taking part in the show.

TV star Nadia was evicted from CBB on Friday night and revealed today that she has spent the majority of her time since then lying in bed at home.

During an appearance on ITV1's Lorraine, Nadia was asked if she regretted signing up to the Channel 5 reality show. She replied: "1000 million per cent. I am decompressing.

"Mark, my husband, has been amazing. I've literally laid in bed for the whole weekend while my family and lovely friends have just brought me back to reality."

However, Nadia then added: "I have always been a huge fan of the show and always will be, and have always watched it and been judgemental of people.

"I've taken the cheque so now it's my turn to be very harshly judged - and I accept that."

During her time in the house, Nadia formed a close bond with Perez Hilton. And it was this friendship with the controversial US blogger that led to her downfall.

Nadia was often seen supporting Perez as he rowed with his fellow housemates and, as a result, she repeatedly found herself up for nomination.

But even she was surprised to hit it off with the American: "The person I thought I was least going to bond with was Perez, so it was a shock to me!" she told host Lorraine Kelly.

Interestingly, during her appearance on the ITV1 breakfast show, Lorraine reminded Nadia that she had previously interviewed Perez for Lorraine.

However, Nadia insisted: "To tell you the truth neither of us could remember a single word that we'd said on that interview!"

Tonight, two housemates will be booted out in a double eviction after the phone lines were opened on Monday night. However, rather than a vote to save, viewers have been dialling for who they want to win Friday night's final.

Among those left in the running is outspoken Katie Hopkins. And, despite clashing with her in the CBB house, Nadia did not have a bad word to say about the former Apprentice star.

"If she wins, I'll wish her well, I wish her well," she said. "I think she will have worked very hard to win so you know I hope for her sake she does."
