Hardman Vinnie Jones has hinted he could quit 'Celebrity Big Brother' after appearing to show the strain.

The footballer-turned-Hollywood-star hinted he could walk out less than 48 hours after entering the reality television house.

Jones is thought to be the highest-paid celebrity on this year's final Channel 4 show -- receiving £350,000 (€390,000) to take part -- and bookies have made him favourite to win.

But the star's talk of wanting to leave began when he was asked what present he would like for his 45th birthday, which he celebrated in the house.

"A red card straight from here would do me,"he said.

He said in the Diary Room: "I don't fancy doing three weeks. I keep eyeing up those walls to see how high they are."

Later Jones branded some housemates "tabloid celebrities", saying: "I don't really know any of them . . . and some are trying a bit hard in here."
