Perez Hilton has claimed he tried to quit Celebrity Big Brother "many times" but was always stopped by producers.

The controversial US blogger was evicted from the house on Wednesday night, with viewers seeing him express delight at being back in the real world.

During his interview with Rylan on Big Brother's Bit On The Side, he was asked about why he never walked when he made repeated threats to do so.

Perez replied: "Why didn't I walk? The honest answer? They convinced me not to leave repeatedly. I tried walking many times.

"I don't want to name names and get people behind the scenes in trouble. Let me be real honest. I would go to the Diary Room and somebody from production says, 'You can't quit, it's The Perez Show!'"

Perez continued: "I'm all about me, myself and I and they're telling me this is the most watched CBB in years and it's The Perez Show. Once I heard that, why would I quit if it's The Perez Show and the most watched in years?!"

Big Brother bosses haven't revealed whether that's true.

Dad-of-one Perez, who carried a plate with his son's name written on it out of the house, said he really did want to leave and it wasn't a game plan.

Discussing why the public didn't vote him out earlier, he said: "I was thinking, are they dong it to try to torture me? Are they doing it because I'm entertaining? Every possible reason I could come up with didn't make me happy as I wanted to be out of the house."

Perez was evicted from the house last night alongside singer Kavana.

It leaves just five housemates in the running to win on tomorrow night's finale: Katie Hopkins, Katie Price, Keith Chegwin, Calum Best and Michelle Visage.
