The reality star said: "I know people are going to compare us because I am a gay American, but you will see a proper difference between Perez and I. I'm a lad's lad.

"I have no problem saying what I think. I just do it in a less bitchy way than Perez. I respected him because he was very open and honest with what he had to say. I was at dinner on Monday with Chloe Goodman who was in the house with Perez and she told me it was just unimaginable hell living with him.

"No one would ever say it was unimaginable hell living with Austin. I have come to redeem gay American men and America as a whole. Speidi were a disaster too. I didn't see their season but I hate them as everyone in America does. I have come to redeem the tarnished brush that Perez has painted us all with."

Perez appeared on the last series of CBB and dominated the headlines so much it was often referred to as The Perez Show. It's even though to have influenced producers' decisions to make this year's CBB a UK versus USA theme.
