Jeremy Jackson claims he pulled open Chloe Goodman's dressing gown on 'Celebrity Big Brother' because he wanted to see what bikini she was wearing after bonding about fashion
Jeremy Jackson opened Chloe Goodman's robe because he's interested in fashion.
The 34-year-old star was removed from the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house on the weekend after allegedly groping the 21-year-old beauty but he insists he didn't touch her skin and was simply keen to find out what bikini she was sporting.
He said: "My intentions were based on a relationship that Chloe and I had built regarding her swimming suits and how many of them she had and how many times she had changed them on the show.
"I toured the world producing fashion shows - that included bikini lines for five years, that included working with models and talking about fashion is something I do on a regular basis."
The former 'Baywatch' actor - who played David Hasselhoff's character Mitch Buchannon's son Hobie in the popular series - claims he didn't think he'd done anything wrong until he realised she wasn't wearing anything underneath the garment.
Speaking on ITV's 'This Morning' he explained: "I was drunk with vomit on my face and I leaned to lift the robe to see here [touches his shoulder], to see the strap and, 'What bikini is this today?' And she didn't have a bikini on and that's when it turned into a naughty situation."
Jeremy - who has struggled with alcohol addiction in the past - confessed that while he thinks being drunk affected his good judgement, he believes he may have acted in the same way had he been sober.
He added: "I venture to say I might have done the same thing sober, yes. Although I was nauseous ... I can't blame it on alcohol. I made the decision, I made the action and the reaction was a bad one."
The troubled star now plans to "proceed with a little more caution and understanding" in the future and is hoping to apologise to Chloe face to face once the Channel 5 show comes to an end.
