According to The Sun the 25-year-old, who is in the UK from India on a student visa, applied for an extension to the permit – but show bosses discovered this week it had been rejected.
The paper reports that he was given permission to meet with a legal team on Friday, in order to sign papers appealing the decision. It is the first time a visitor has been allowed on the show’s closed set.
If the appeal is successful he could be allowed another three months in the UK – but faces being sent back to India if it is turned down.
A spokeswoman for the Channel 4 show confirmed, “Sree has had private meetings with an immigration lawyer within the house.”
The meeting came as Sree finally declared that fellow housemate Noirin was not interested in him.
Sree sought solace in Lisa after the Irish lass declared he was “doing my nut in”.
But he soon cheered up and said, “Hopefully a nice single girl has to come into this house. Make sure that this girl is not from Dublin again.”
