Lionel Blair says one of the best things to come out of 'Celebrity Big Brother' is his "wonderful" friendship with Dappy
Lionel Blair's friendship with Dappy was his favourite thing about 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The 82-year-old entertainer - who was evicted from the famous house on Friday (17.01.14) - knows he wouldn't have encountered anyone quite like the N-Dubz star in the real world and he thinks his new pal is "wonderful".
He said: "The wonderful thing was I met Dappy ... now when would I meet a Dappy? He calls me 'Lord Lionel Blair' and and I call him 'The Duke of St Albans'!"
Lionel bonded with many of his young housemates and is looking forward to a night out with 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Sam Faiers when the show is over.
Speaking on 'Daybreak' this morning (20.01.14), he said: "I said to Sam, 'When you go out, can I come down and come out with you?' so I'm now out with them."
But despite his friendships with Dappy and Sam, Lionel - who has three children with wife Susan - is backing 'Made in Chelsea' star Ollie Locke to win.
He said: "I'd love Ollie to win. He is the nicest, sweetest guy and my wife wants to adopt him!"
The veteran dancer is shocked at some of the things he has read about the house love triangle between Lee Ryan, Casey Batchelor and Jasmine Waltz.
He said: "Lee is a young man [who thinks], 'There's a lovely girl, ooh there's another lovely girl.' I read things this morning that I can't believe happened. If I was there, it wouldn't have happened."
