Former football pundit Ron Atkinson has already admitted he regrets going into the Celebrity Big Brother house – and would be more than happy to leave.

Speaking to Bruce Jones in the garden after becoming the first housemate nominated for eviction, he hinted that he had had enough after just 24 hours behind the house doors.

“I’d be quite happy to pack my bags and go, now I know this ain’t my scene,” he told the former Corrie star, adding: “I’m having to keep a lid on a lot of things.”

However Bruce disagreed, telling him: “You fit in well.”

Ron became the first Celebrity Big Brother housemate nominated for eviction on Friday night after being secretly chosen by ‘temple’ trio Louie Spence, Lauren Harries and Sophie Anderton.

However he was left convinced the public had put him up for the vote rather than his fellow housemates.

Another nominee will be chosen by the trio on Saturday, with the first eviction on Wednesday night.
