Levi appeared on ITV’s This Morning today to talk about his time on CBB and missing out on a place in the final.

Meanwhile Ekin-Su was supposed to be on Lorraine Kelly’s daytime show today, but pulled out at the last minute.

Speaking in a video to fans, Levi said: “It’s been an amazing self-discovery two weeks within the Big Brother house.

“First, I wanted to say thank you to everybody. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the support and thank you to everybody who allowed me to be myself, allowed me to be the authentic Levi Roots, who I am.

“It was an absolutely amazing journey. I went in because I wanted to discover myself all over again but in a different way.

“It’s been a long time since I came on the scene ever since Dragons’ Den 17 years ago so I really wanted to connect with these young people who perhaps weren’t even born when I joined Dragons’ Den in 2007.

“I made so much of an impact on young people with my music, with the food and the sauce.

“I wanted to go back into a situation where they can see me in a different light and perhaps where you don’t see me on social media or on TV.

“In the house you have to be the authentic you or at least I was anyway.”

Earlier today he defended Ekin-Su who received backlash from fans before being evicted on Friday.

He accused his fellow Housemates of “bullying” the Love Island star – and claims she was struggling with being picked on.

Levi also said he had been secretly supported Ekin-Su in scenes that didn’t make it on air.

Speaking on This Morning today, he told hosts Cat Deeley and Ben Shephard: “Everyone was being unfair to Ekin-Su.

“There was a bit of micro bullying going on and people were picking on her …

“I didn’t think it was fair. On what she had done on other shows before.

“So I had to put a bit of an arm around her.


“I felt like she was my daughter, so we had a lot of conversations and I was trying to G her up.

“Those moments she kept being voted, her name kept being called out I really felt it for her, I love Ekin-Su she is a lovely girl.”
