The 82-year-old showbiz legend - who was greeted by cheers from the crowd outside the house - said he was sad to leave but was looking forward to being reunited with his family.

During his exit interview with host Emma Willis, Lionel said he felt glamour model Casey Batchelor was playing games with Lee Ryan to get more press.

When he was asked what he thought of the love triangle between Casey, Lee and Jasmine Waltz, he said: "I think one person is playing a game, Casey.

"Last night I had a long talk to Lee ... and he said that she said to him that ‘keep it going because we’ll get lots of press’.

"She seems very aware of what’s going on."

He also said he felt the feud between Jim Davidson and Linda Nolan had been dragged out for too long.

"I still don’t know what it’s over," he said. "But it was ten years ago, to keep up that grudge for that long, it’s not good."

And Lionel also revealed he's backing 'TOWIE' star Sam Faiers to win, adding: "I love Sam, I think she’s beautiful, I think she’s lovely."

We'll have to wait until the final on 29 January to find out if Lionel's right - and you could be there. Enter our competition to win tickets below...
