Calum Best speaks candidly about his late father in tonight's Celebrity Big Brother 2017.

In this evening's highlights, Calum is seen in the garden talking to Coleen Nolan and James Cosmo about his late father, George Best.


Calum says they had some great times, including his first time at Manchester United and receiving a football signed by all the players, “Beckham, Giggs and all of that lot, plus some of the old-school legends.”

He said that later that night he was kicking the ball around in the street, “Not thinking about whose names were on the ball…wish I still had that ball.”

Coleen asks if George’s liver transplant gave Calum hope. Calum says it did and recalls a time they were able to go on holiday together. He entered the kitchen and says that his father “closed the fridge door real quick…there was an open bottle of wine and he had swigged from it.”

Calum says that he felt that if being together wasn’t good enough for his father that was the moment “I understood what it was to be alcohol dependent.”

Celebrity Big Brother airs tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
