Celebrity Big Brother's Shaun Williamson was "relieved" to be killed off on EastEnders

Celebrity Big Brother Summer 2017

Shaun Williamson has admitted he was "relieved" after being killed off on EastEnders.

The current Celebrity Big Brother housemate played Barry Evans on the BBC One soap for a decade between 1994 and 2004, famously dying after being pushed off a cliff.

In tonight's show, Derek and Jemma are in the garden quizzing Shaun on his life in EastEnders.

Shaun confesses: “Fairly relieved. You did find yourself after a few years thinking ‘I’ve done this storyline’. They’ve just kicked it about a bit.”

Soon however Shaun finds himself putting his soap acting skills back to the test.

In the first task of the series, Housemates have been paired up for the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 Talent Show.

Shaun and fellow soap star Paul Danan - who appeared on Hollyoaks - show off their acting skills with a scene on stage.

Elsewhere in tonight's latest episode, Shaun is in the diary room talking to Big Brother about his task on the first night.

Shaun was given a secret mission that ended with him having to give a killer nomination, putting Marissa Jade up for eviction.

“I just thought it deserved a bit more of a reward," he tells Big Brother.

Shaun goes on to talk about his killer nominee, Marissa; “Turns out, she’s a mob bosses missus! Now I’m going to get a horses head in my bed when I leave here!”

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 continues nightly on Channel 5.

The latest episode airs tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
