Evicted Celebrity Big Brother 2015 housemate Perez Hilton has claimed producers took him out of the Diary Room to convince him to stay in the house.
Perez got the axe in last night's double eviction and claimed he was overjoyed to leave.
Speaking on Bit On The Side, Perez said he regretted ever entering the house and told host Rylan Clark: "If I could go back in time and not do the show, I wouldn't."
Pushed on why then he didn't walk, Perez replied: “Do you want the honest answer, you want me to tell the truth?
"They convinced me not to leave, Big Brother convinced me not to leave. I tried walking many times.
“Do you want me to name names? I don't want to get anyone behind the scenes in trouble."
Perez then explained: "Let me be real honest, I wont mention names, but I got out of the Diary Room, somebody from the production said 'You can't quit, it's the Perez show'. They did."
He also claimed that producers had told him how viewing figures for the latest series were the best in years.
"If you're telling me that this is the most watched Celebrity Big Brother in years, once I heard that, why am I going to quit if it's The Perez Show? I hope I don't get that person in trouble now."
Earlier this week, evicted housemate Cami Li claimed that Big Brother were 'running scared' of Perez.
She claimed: “Big Brother definitely fixed that show.
“They do it because he makes good TV, they do it because of his mental weakness and they do it because he kept threatening them legally. They are running scared of him.”
The model revealed: “He’d shout out his lawyer’s number all the time, so they knew he meant business.”
Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5 with the final on FRIDAY night.
