Lewis Bloor is hoping that Celebrity Big Brother will help to launch his acting career.
The former TOWIE star has big ambitions and one day hopes to become the next James Bond.
Chatting to the Daily Star on Sunday before the series begun, Lewis said: “I went to acting school and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do.
“Since I was very young I’ve wanted to be James Bond. Hopefully it’ll happen. We’ll see."
He teased: "Give me five years and you never know.”
Lewis quit ITVBe reality series The Only Way Is Essex earlier this year and ruled out a return any time soon, if ever.
“I’m not sure I’ll ever go back to the show," he said. “It was a fantastic experience but it’s not something that fits with my lifestyle at the minute.
“I’m a personal trainer now so I don’t want to be going to events two or three times a week and drinking alcohol all the time."
Lewis added: “I feel like I’m following a real career path now rather than just partying and enjoying the Essex lifestyle.”
Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
