Keith Chegwin: CBB mates have deserted me

Keith Chegwin has revealed he has lost touch with all his 'Celebrity Big Brother' housemates and he thinks it's understandable due to the rows they all had to live with between Perez Hilton and Katie Hopkins among others
Keith Chegwin is no longer in touch with the other contestants he starred with in 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The 58-year-old presenter was part of the series earlier this year which saw Perez Hilton go to war with Katie Hopkins and have bust-ups with Calum Best, Michelle Visage and Kavana among others.
Jeremy Jackson was also thrown out for inappropriate behaviour towards glamour model Chloe Goodman and Ken Morley booted out for offensive language.
Keith was hoping to stay in touch with the contestants he did get on well with but he's not shocked everyone has gone their own ways due to the relentless drama in the house.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz, he said, "I've never known people to disappear so quickly in my whole life and I don't think any of them keep in touch with each other either. I think four weeks is probably enough really. It's always that showbiz thing. 'Big Brother' is just a job, isn't it?"
Keith has also lifted the lid on the special treatment some of the other contestants received during the series.
He said: "Some people are looked after better than you because it's in their contract. Katie Hopkins had her own dressing room and in the room she had an en suite bathroom and a laptop computer.
"Then there was Patsy Kensit who was running up the stairs one day and I went, 'Where are you going?' She said, 'I'm just getting a false tan done'. Two days later she went up the stairs again and I said 'What are you doing now?' And she said, 'I'm having my roots done.' "
Despite his tough experience of 'CBB', Keith wouldn't totally rule out taking part in another reality show.
He said: "I don't know really, but I think I'd be up for it."
