Marco Pierre White Junior's chef dad still "proud" of him despite Big Brother 2016 scandal

Big Brother 2016

Marco Pierre White Junior has claimed that his celebrity chef dad is "proud" of him after his stint on Big Brother 2016 - even though he sparked controversy with his raunchy antics.

The heavily tattooed model's relationship with Laura Carter raised quite a few eyebrows, with Ofcom now investigating last Sunday's episode after over 600 people complained about scenes showing them engaging in risqué sexual acts with a belt.

He also rubbed viewers up the wrong way by boasting about his lavish lifestyle.

But it seems Marco Pierre White senior, star of shows such as Hell's Kitchen and the Australian version of MasterChef, isn't too angry with what happened.

Speaking on today's edition of ITV's This Morning, Marco Jnr said of his dad: "He was a bit upset about some of the things I mentioned on the TV show, but he is proud of me."

When pressed on what exactly he was upset about, the 21-year-old added: "My partying, my behaviour on the outside world."

One discussion saw Marco Jnr admit that he once blew £250,000 on "prostitutes, cocaine and alcohol" in a three-month binge.

While he insisted he didn't regret his behaviour on Big Brother and wouldn't act differently given a second chance, he did admit feeling like he'd "let down" his dad "a tiny bit".

It has also been revealed today that Marco Jnr has called off his engagement since his exit from the show after much debate over his "hall pass".
