He left the house to a barrage of boos upon his eviction, admitting to Emma Willis he had an idea why he was given the boot.
During his exit interview, Marco admitted: “I can’t believe it. I was surprised. I was ready to go, and now ready to move on with the rest of my life. I don’t take it personally.
“Maybe [I was evicted] because of my relationship status with my fiancée.”
He went on to suggest that Emma Jensen should be crowned this year’s winner, before adding: “Everyone deserves to win in there!”
Marco made headlines on a number of occasions during his time in the house, most notably on a particularly raunchy night with Laura, when he invited her to “choke him” in the pod.
Following this, the two had a seriously heavy kissing session in the garden, culminating in him putting her breast in his mouth in full view of the cameras, before the two of them disappeared under the duvet in the ‘BB’ bedroom.
When he suggested he and his fiancée had an “open relationship”, she was quick to deny this, insisting that she’d actually just given him a “hall pass” during his stint on ‘BB’.
Marco had previously been named the favourite to be given the boot by bookies.
