Celebrity Big Brother star Bradley reveals what happened off camera after being brutally evicted

Celebrity Big Brother star Bradley reveals what happened off camera after being brutally evicted

The Heartstopper actor was given the chop last night in a dramatic showdown.

The dreaded day of the Celebrity Big Brother final has tragically dawned (*cries*), but if last night's penultimate episode was anything to go by, we're in for a dramatic conclusion.

Following an unexpected arrival from presenter AJ Odudu on Thursday (21 March) evening, one of the show's fan-favourites was axed in an eviction that viewers have branded both 'brutal' and 'cruel'.

You can watch the heartbreaking moment unfold below:

And today, Bradley Riches - much-loved actor from Netflix's LGBTQ+ hit Heartstopper - has lifted the lid on what really went down that fateful night, and why he had no fans, friends or family waiting for him on the outside.

Over the last few weeks, audiences have witnessed a fresh batch of famous faces forming surprise friendships, clashing in heated confrontations, giving car crash interviews and making some bombshell admissions.

And all the drama of the last month has led up to tonight, when frontwoman AJ and her co-host Will Best will reveal who has been crowned this year's Celebrity Big Brother champion.

Sadly now out of the running, however, is TV star Bradley, 22, who received the chop during last night's heartbreaking instalment.

On the show, we saw the youngster waiting patiently in the house garden, believing he was to come face-to-face with a member of his family, as his other housemates previously had.

The star was evicted during last night's show.

It was then, however, that AJ emerged (somewhat comedically) from the bushes, sitting down to tell him that his loved ones couldn't be there, because he was, in fact, the seventh housemate to be eliminated from the show.

"As you can see, neither a friend or a family member is here for you," the presenter started. "That is because the public have been voting.

"I can now reveal that the seventh housemate to be evicted is you."

Asked how he feels, Bradley replied: "I've had so much fun. I feel fine. I didn't think I was going to make it this far. I love everyone in there and I'm so proud of everyone.

"I'm very thankful, very grateful and very happy."

The star then bid his goodbyes to his co-stars before slipping out through an internal door.

And today, in his eagerly-anticipated post-eviction interview, he has spilled the tea on his eviction.

Speaking to Good Morning Britain presenters Kate Garraway, Adil Ray and Richard Arnold, he opened up on some unconventional behind-the-scenes protocols.

Apparently he was kept in isolation - not being able to speak to friends or family - until his final scenes aired on the show.

"The whole of Wednesday I was with a chaperone like in lockdown. No phone, nothing," he laughed. "Only an iPad with Netflix on it and that was it."

Following his exit, viewers slammed producers for the 'cruel' way Bradley was removed from the house.

"One of the main reasons I’d go on Big Brother is to experience a proper eviction if I had to leave like Bradley just did I’d be fuming; Bradley's eviction was cruel. Period," one penned on social media.

Another went on: "No getting Bradley all excited about Scott and his dog coming in and evicting him is honestly horrible… bless him; I can’t even watch this omg not them getting Bradley excited STOPP"
