Celebrity Big Brother's Keith Chegwin was shocked Perez Hilton was evicted last night, telling Katie Hopkins he thought the public would have kept the US blogger in the show.

Last night, the housemates finally got to wave goodbye to Perez as he left the house - along with Kavana - in a double eviction.

And left a little surprised by his exit, Keith said: "Who would have thought that? I thought the British public would have kept [Perez] in to annoy us all. Just for the fun of it."

Giving her verdict on why Perez was then given the boot, Katie replied: "I think it's because he hasn't been super-fun for the last three days, he hasn't had anyone to spar with."

Keith then agreed, claiming the 36-year-old had been "dull" on the show recently.

After Emma announced he was the second housemate to be evicted yesterday, Perez left the house without saying goodbye to anyone. Shortly after he had left, the housemates were spotted celebrating, clearly happy to see the back of Perez.

Recalling their reaction, Cheggers added: "Nobody jumped up to say goodbye, we all jumped up to hug each other! That's bad."

But telling Keith the celebrations were justified, Katie said: "Yes, but having said that he had legged it up the stairs."

Meanwhile, Perez was opening up to host Emma Willis about his time on Celebrity Big Brother, telling her he was "SO happy" to be leaving.

He said: "I have never experienced anything like that in my entire life," he told host Emma Willis. "I could have never imagined anything so twisted or dark. It was a freak show night and day."

Dad-of-one Perez then told Rylan Clark on CBBBOTS he had tried to leave the CBB house multiple times, but producers had stopped him.

Explaining why he didn't walk - even though he threatened to repeatedly - Perez said show bosses had convinced him to stay by telling him the show was all about him.

"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," he claimed. "Once I heard that, why would I quit if it's The Perez Show and the most watched in years?"

Now Perez and Kavana are out, only five celebrities remain for tomorrow night's (6 February) final: Katie Price, Michelle Visage, Katie H, Keith and Calum Best.
