Brandon Block reveals the real reason he left Celebrity Big Brother

Celebrity Big Brother 2017

Brandon Block has spilled on just what happened on Celebrity Big Brother.

The 90s DJ entered the house back in January but walked out just a week later.

Now a couple of months on, he's revealed exactly why he decided to sign up and what made him quit after one week.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Brandon explained that he had actually been lined up for the show a number of times in the past - as far back as 2005

"I was up for it when Bez was on it and I lost out to him. He went on to win it in 2005. So it had always been in the pipeline for me," Brandon said. "I was on the short list a couple of years ago also and that didn’t work out.

"So I didn’t really think about it after that and thought it probably wasn’t going to happen but then it obviously it came up. I was a bit shocked but I thought why not, let’s go for it."

He continued: "I suppose the reason why I decided to do it was because of the work I do now. It gives you a lot of insight into yourself and I had a few demons.

"I wanted to show in front of the cameras the real me today. I’ve changed a lot over the years, I don’t do any of the stuff I used to do back in the day and I’ve changed as a person."

Brandon said he decided to leave because he couldn't relax in the house over fears of how he was being portrayed to viewers.

"I just did my thing and enjoyed sitting out chatting to people like James Cosmo and Coleen Nolan," Brandon told the newspaper. "I suppose the thing I was thinking in there was how was I being perceived, what’s the new Brandon like? I just didn’t feel relaxed though and felt the time was right to go."

While Big Brother is over for Brandon, another reality show may await.

"Well you can never say never. I would love to do something like I’m a Celebrity," he teased.
