Big Brother 2016: Alex Cannon wants to go on a date with Evelyn Ellis

Big Brother 2016

Alex Cannon says he wants to take Evelyn Ellis out on a date after Big Brother 2016.

Insisting that he does have feelings for her, the model says he hopes to see how things between the pair progress on the outside.

Alex was given the boot on Sunday night in a shock eviction and spoke today to press for the first time since his exit.

"Me and Evelyn only really got close in the past couple of weeks," explained Alex. "She was really slow to come out of her shell, so I didn't get to know her.

"I'd definitely like to take her out and have a drink with her on the outside and see what happens, it is what it is for now."

Alex joked they "won't be walking down the aisle any time soon" but added: "She's a gorgeous girl and good company."

However what about Alex's rumoured romance with Vicky Pattison?

He says they're the "best of friends" and revealed: "I love her to bits. Both of us have said that to each other.

"It would be a risk [to become a couple]. Literally I have never been closer to a girl in my life, so to make that decision and go do that would be sort of a game-changer, so we're happy as we are now... I'm not one to force something where it doesn't fit.

"If it happens, it happens. If it doesn't, it doesn't... as long as she's in my life, I'm happy."

Big Brother concludes tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
