In a post shared with his 713,000 Twitter followers, he wrote: "Such a scam that Angie who was a maniac ran out of the #CBB house is at the finale N they told me I couldn't go cause I was claustrophobic."

However, seeing the funny side, he added: "I was busy anyway..its fashion week! lol."

One follower posted: "So Angie walks out & can go to the #CBBFinal but @JonathanCheban can't?! Ridiculous #ItsPissingWithRainAnyway #GemmasHair."

To which Jonathan replied: "Embarrassing right?"

In January, the KUWTK star had told his Twitter followers that he wanted to attend the final, but explained "they won't let me". He called the decision "silly".

He lasted seven days in the house, in which he developed a close bond with Gemma Collins, before he chose to leave of his own accord because of his increasing anxiety.

Angie Bowie and David Gest both left the Big Brother house later due to heath concerns.

Despite being banned from the live final in Elstree, the reality TV star had positive words for eventual winner Scotty T.

After the Geordie Shore star was announced as the winner over runner-up Stephanie Davis, Jonathan wrote: "Congrats @ScottGShore winning #cbb. He's always so fun. We had the best time and he remained the same way to till the end!! See you soon!"

In response to fans, Jonathan also declared that pal Kim Kardashian "definitely" didn't watch any CBB and revealed he'd be back in the UK at the end of February.

Jonathan recently revealed he's planning his own show, concentrating on "food, lifestyle and celebrity hotspots".
