Vicky Pattison's best friend Alex Cannon entered the Big Brother house on Tuesday night and, as you'd expect, she's started campaigning for him to be crowned winner!

Former Geordie Shore star Vicky, 28, took to Instagram to share a beautiful photo of her with Alex, and tell her followers just why he deserves to be crowned the champion.

Alex, who co-starred on Judge Geordie with Vicky, told Emma Willis that he'd received one bit of advice from Vicky, who won I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! last year.

"She said to be myself and just enjoy it!"

Vicky and Alex have been romantically linked in the past, but Vicky told Fabulous magazine recently that nothing would ever happen beyond close friendship.

"For a long while I really did think something was going to happen, and because I don't think he was aware of that, it made our relationship a little odd. I was wanting more and he was confused by my behaviour. Maybe I was confusing a great friendship with love. We've obviously kissed, but we've never slept together and I think we've got past that point now."

Big Brother continues tonight on Channel 5.
