The Another Level singer phoned into Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On The Side to support Heavy D ahead of tonight's eviction, saying he hopes the public vote to save him.
"Obviously I know him out of the house and it's very different in there when you don't know what will come across," said Dane. "He's funny, he likes sticking up for himself and sticking up for other people. I think he's one of those people who the longer he's in there, the funnier he will get."
Dane, who appeared in CBB himself in 2010, added: "I think he always thought he'd be nominated in there. His mission in life is just to annoy people, which I find quite funny. He's a bit of a gentle teddy bear, to be quite honest with you."
"If he sees he's winding someone up, he'll go for the jugular," said Dane. "And obviously if everyone is sitting there saying he's annoying them, he'll carry on and on and on."
Storage Hunters' Heavy D was nominated for reasons including his loud singing and behaviour that irritated housemates when they wanted quiet time. Lewis Bloor called him boring, while Saira Khan said: "He's rude, ignorant, loud and overbearing." Marnie Simpson, meanwhile, thought he was playing a game and not being himself.
He's up against Bear, Lewis and Saira and we'll find out tonight who goes home!
CBB continues 9pm on Channel 5.
