Claire King wants boxer Audley Harrison to win 'Celebrity Big Brother' following her exit from the house due to illness
Claire King has tipped Audley Harrison to win 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The former 'Bad Girls' actress had to leave the house after 16 days due to a mystery illness but now that she is out she wants the 42-year-old Olympic boxing gold medallist to triumph on the Channel 5 show.
The 51-year-old actress - who has now contracted colitis, an inflammation of the colon - told BANG Showbiz: "I think I want Audley to win.
"He's one of the old farts, isn't he? He's level-headed, he's intelligent, he's turned his life around. "He's a real gent - and he's a great cook."
Claire admitted she wanted to return to the house despite coming down with the mystery illness but doctors wouldn't let her.
She added: "I was trying everything to go back in, but it was actually the doctors in the hospital who said I was far too ill, and they couldn't let me back in."
While she was put up for eviction in the first week, Claire would jump at the chance to go back into the house because she has unfinished business in there.
When asked if she would go back into the infamous abode if she got given the opportunity, she replied: "Yeah, I would do. I don't feel like I've had the full experience, really. I know I was put up for eviction in the first week, and obviously survived that, but that's all part of the game.
"But I just feel I didn't get in my stride or experience it properly. So yeah, I feel kind of cheated by my illness, really."
