Martin Kemp has revealed he once resorted to using 10-pound notes when he ran out of loo roll on a night-out.

The Spandau Ballet star admitted to the pricey alternative during a discussion with his Celebrity Big Brother housemates about their toilet habits.

Ex-EastEnders actress Cheryl Fergison quizzed her fellow contestants about whether they had ever been forced to use the cardboard tube in desperation.

Martin – whose hits include True – admitted: “I have, in a nightclub. And I used a tenner once. A £10 note, ‘cos that’s all I had.

“It was do or die. It was in the middle of a nightclub and nothing there. Ten quid.”

He went on: “It was more expensive than that ‘cos I had to use two, but when you’re stuck with nothing 20 quid down the toilet was all right. I thought it was a bargain.”

Several of the housemates looked embarrassed by Cheryl’s line of questioning as she pressed them on how many sheets of paper they used.

The stars of the Channel 5 show were enjoying a makeshift funfair in the garden with coin-operated rides and a bikini-clad Jasmine Lennard trying her luck on a ‘penny falls’ machine.

Julie Goodyear and Julian Clary were among the stars to be splatted with custard pies as they popped their faces through an end of the pier-style ‘cut-out’.

The housemates face their first eviction on Wednesday night with Jasmine and fellow model Rhian Sugden facing the axe.
