David McIntosh has become the first housemate to be evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house.

The former Gladiator and fiancé of Kelly Brook was booted out after receiving the fewest votes from members of the public.

He emerged from the house and danced his way down the steps to cheers from the crowd.

McIntosh, who appeared as Tornado on Sky 1’s TV show Gladiators, was in high spirits despite his early departure from the Channel 5 show.

He told host Emma Willis: “I'm upset.

“I'm a bit of a loser but it's OK. I'll take it on the chin. I'm a competitive man but it doesn't matter - I'm good.”

And model and actress Brook was more than happy to have her husband-to-be back, tweeting the following:


The pair got engaged in March after a whirlwind 12-week romance and McIntosh admitted that he had been pining for Brook in the house.

Asked why he thought fellow housemate Leslie Jordan had exiled him to the “celebrity scrap heap”, he said: “He could sense from me that I was missing my fiancée.”

McIntosh also said that he snuggled up with his bed-mate and Geordie Shore star Ricci Guarnaccio inside the house. He told viewers: “I ended up spooning him a few times in the night - but I guess that is force of habit.”


The remaining housemates include reality TV star Lauren Goodger, boxing promoter Kellie Maloney and Will and Grace actor Leslie Jordan. Lethal Weapon actor Gary Busey is currently the bookie’s favourite to win.
