Patsy Kensit has compared the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house to a psychiatric hospital.
The 46-year-old actress - who was voted off the Channel 5 show last night (27.01.15) - admits she never imagined the experience would be as hard as it was and has likened it to the Jack Nicholson film 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest', insisting her passion for meditating helped her through the drama between contestants including Perez Hilton and Katie Hopkins.
Asked if she would do it again, Patsy said: "I don't think so. I don't think so because I think you can't ... I know girls that have gone on it, women that have gone it and that I've spoken to and like I said Martin Kemp did it and said get prepared for the boredom.
"Martin's into meditation and stuff, he knows I'm at that place in my life so that's a great tool to have, for me, it's not for everybody and it's very boring and I didn't want to ram it down anybody's throat but there are people that have gone on it [Big Brother] and said it's like a holiday camp but it was more like 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'.
"All of us are different and may they get on with it now and I was just so happy to be up those stairs."
The 'Lethal Weapon 2' star also confessed that while she felt sorry for Perez when all the other celebrities began ignoring him, there were occasions on which she couldn't bring herself to talk to him either.
She shared: "I left school many years ago and it felt very much like being back at school and my heart did go out to Perez towards the end because he was really ostracised and I would dip in and out, for all my we've got to love each other and be peaceful and everything, I felt quite selfish because I couldn't deal with him when he was on high octane but other times he was just adorable."
'Celebrity Big Brother' continues tonight (28.01.15) at 9pm on Channel 5.
