The businessman failed to impress Lord Alan Sugar but was a hit with his competitors who he shared a house with during his time on the show so should settle into the CBB house well.

Someone who might not gel as much is comedian David O’Reilly. As his alter ego Dapper Laughs, he’s made a number of disparaging remarks about women that won’t go down well in the women empowered house.
