David Gest 'wants to return to the Celebrity Big Brother house'

Celebrity Big Brother

David Gest has said he wants to return to the Celebrity Big Brother house.

David was forced to leave the show earlier this month due to illness, telling the other housemates he was "so sorry" to have had to quit.

Now back to full health, David says he wants to make a comeback to help pal Stephanie Davis out.

Apparently the pair actually go back a few years and David thinks she could do with some support in the house after the past seven days of drama, arguments and tension.

"I have been watching the show to see what's happening with Stephanie and Jeremy for myself," David explained this week. "Since I have been out a few of our mutual friends have informed me of certain circumstances I was unaware of and that Stephanie never told me.

"I think I was a little too harsh on Stephanie when I was in there but only because of what she never told me. There may be more to the story than meets the eye."

In the house, Steph has been torn between Jeremy and her boyfriend Sam on the outside, and it's caused numerous clashes.

"She's a great girl but just not mature for her age," David told BANG! Showbiz. "Sometimes she is just like a child. It's hard for her to take guidance."

He added: "Matters of the heart are strong and she needs some one-on-one advice. There are great qualities in each of these guys from what I know."

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
