Paul Danan is set to star in a new sitcom.
The former 'Hollyoaks' actor was only given the boot from Channel 5 reality show 'Celebrity Big Brother' on Friday (18.08.17), but it seems his next job is already in the pipeline as he's revealed he's working on a new BBC sitcom based around Channel 4's 90s hit 'Desmond's'.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Paul said: "It's been a whirlwind. I've got a sitcom coming out - it will be a modern-day Desmond's set in a London barber's shop.
"I'm really excited as acting is my passion and that's what I want to be known for. I've had loads of messages of support from younger viewers who didn't know who I was before."
Paul gave no further details about the planned show, so it is unknown as of the time of writing when the programme is set to air.
Meanwhile, the 39-year-old actor recently admitted he was "gutted" to have been evicted from 'Celebrity Big Brother', as he hoped he would have finished in a respectable third place.
He added: "I hoped I'd find the real me, and I did."
And the star - who was known for being one of the first 'Love Island' contestants in 2005 and 2006 - even thanked 'Big Brother' for his time on the show, as he believes the opportunity has given him a "second chance" at his career.
He said: "Thank you 'Big Brother' for having me. You've given me a second chance."
Paul was nicknamed "Dangerous Danan" following his two stints on the original 'Love Island', which saw him fall "in love" with Lady Isabella Hervey before being removed from the villa after a drunken row in the first series, while he spent most of his time arguing with model Sophie Anderton after his return to the house in the second series.
