Ex-CBB house mate Andrew Brady says it was 'disrespectful' of him to call Ann Widdecombe a 'c***'

Evicted Celebrity Big Brother housemate Andrew Brady says fellow housemate Anne Widdecombe did "not deserve" to be called a 'c***'.

Earlier in the week the former Apprentice candidate hit out at the ex-Tory MP after he was nominated for last night's triple eviction.

Brady (26) launched an expletive-laden rant at the 70-year-old after she mentioned that his family were watching the show.

He later told Jonny Mitchell people would “end up in the back of an ambulance” if they brought family into an argument in his home town, and called the former politician a “stuck-up bitch”.

They later had a conversation in the garden in which he said he had forgiven her. 

And on emerging from the Big Brother House on Friday night he told Metro, "I still felt she went too far with bringing up my family but she didn’t deserve to be called that. ‘I do respect my elders more than most. Look at Amanda [Barrie], she doesn’t have those views.

"Yes I do respect my elders, I was somewhat disrespectful, but we’re putting Ann on a pedestal because of her age."

Brady was just one of three to be evicted on Friday's show. 

On leaving Dapper Laughs said the ultimate atonement would be getting a television show back.

His was axed in 2014 after a video emerged of him telling an audience member she was “gagging for a rape” during a live show.

He discussed the past controversy on Friday after proposing to his partner in his eviction interview, during which he admitted he was “the most hated man in the UK at one point”.

After the show, O’Reilly said: “If I’ve come out of this and people look at me slightly different, then fantastic, but all I wanted to do was prove I wasn’t as evil as maybe I was portrayed as before.

“I will be getting back on tour. A TV show is obviously the complete redemption. I’d love to get back on TV.”

O’Reilly, 33, lost his ITV2 show Dapper Laughs: On The Pull after one series and had his UK tour cancelled after the controversial comment surfaced.

More than 60,000 people signed a petition asking the channel to cancel the show and 44 comedians signed an open letter condemning his “sexist and degrading” comedy.

O’Reilly, who was the eighth person in the series to be evicted, used his post-eviction interview to get down on one knee to ask Shelley Rae to marry him.

Rae, who recently gave birth to their daughter Neve, struggled to contain her emotion and sobbed into O’Reilly’s jacket as he held her.

Shane Jenek, also known as drag queen Courtney Act, was the only nominated housemate to be saved by the public in the triple eviction.

Jonny Mitchell and Andrew Brady were kicked out ahead of O’Reilly.
