Marco Pierre White Jr has become a household name almost overnight thanks to his antics on Big Brother 2016. But his behaviour hasn't endeared him to the voting public and last night he was the first person to be evicted from the latest series of C5's reality TV show!

His most talked about escapade involved fellow housemate Laura Carter. Laura and Marco Jr left viewers and housemates in shock when they appeared to engage in sex romps during their time in the house...

Marco became a further talking point among Big Brother fans when he claimed that his fiancée, fashion designer, Kim Melville-Smith, had given him a 'hall pass' during his time on the show.

Last night Marco Jr claimed he had no regrets, despite being no stranger to controversy in the house.

Following his eviction Marco admitted he was shocked to be the first one out but told Big Brother host Emma Willis he had prepared himself to go.

He said: “I can’t believe it, to be fair. I was a bit surprised but I was ready to go. I had packed my bags.”

He said he was keen to make the most of his time in the house.

“I mean, it’s just a great time in there, you’ve just got to lose yourself in there and get a bit crazy,” he said.

When asked if he thought he should have done anything differently, the son of famous chef, Marco Pierre White, said: “I mean I definitely should’ve taken my time. Maybe I wouldn’t be the first one out tonight. But I don’t regret anything I did.”

Kim wasn't present at Marco's eviction.

Big Brother sparked more than 250 complaints to Ofcom after Sunday’s episode showed Marco and club hostess Laura playing a sex game during which she strangled him with a belt.

If there really is no such thing as bad publicity, this year’s Big Brother contestants could be set for life…
