American TV star Leslie Jordan has become the second housemate to be evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Leslie – best known to UK viewers for his role in comedy series Will And Grace – was shown the exit after polling the lowest number of public votes.

He was up for eviction with Gogglebox star George Gilbey, US actor Gary Busey and boxer Audley Harrison.

Asked by CBB host Emma Willis if he was surprised at being voted off, Leslie said: “Not even two days ago the public had voted me the most entertaining house member.

“I allowed people to get to me, I was screaming and cursing. I guess that’s entertainment.”

Leslie found himself at the centre of fiery confrontations in the house.

Kellie Maloney, who used to be known as Frank and managed ex-heavyweight boxing champion Lennox Lewis, was reprimanded for calling Leslie a “little queen”.

The actor also had a furious run-in with Angelique “Frenchy” Morgan.

After being shown footage of him losing his temper in the house, Leslie said: “That’s so hard, I could weep… that’s not me.”

Earlier in the week, former Gladiator David McIntosh became the first contestant to leave the Channel 5 show.

Celebrity Big Brother continues on Channel 5, Saturday, August 30, 9.25pm.
