Big Brother Daley In Emotional Interview
Ejected housemate opens up after row with Hazel led to boot...
The boxer appeared on spin-off show Big Brother's Bit On The Side last night to discuss the incident that saw him removed from the Channel 5 show.
He said: "I don't know what to think, I'm a bit... [confused].
"If I've come across as offensive to any woman out there, then I'm sorry... I'm not malicious, I would never ever do anything to a woman or disrespect a woman in that way."
It was revealed that Daley had told glamour model Hazel O'Sullivan - with whom a romance had been blossoming: "Have some respect for your f**king elders, yeah do you understand me… 'cos if you don't… I'll finish you... Respect your f**king elders, before I nut you one."
But Daley refused to be drawn on Hazel when quizzed by host Emma.
He said: "I don't think it's right to comment. I want people to make their own mind up about her and judge what they see, and then if I'm in the wrong, I'm sorry. I don't even want to waste my breath... on chatting her name.
"I've come here to apologise... to anyone I've offended, I don't really care to say anything about Hazel."
But he did insist that viewers had not seen the full story.
"People only see the edited shows... I actually had deep conversations with Hazel, saying, 'Listen, we've crossed a line'. I would ask her... 'Be straight with me as a woman... am I crossing the line?' She said, 'No, you're not doing nothing wrong'."
And Daley, 28, was contrite when quizzed about his real-world GF Katie Corriette.
"I can't really answer that question. She knows I love her. I've explained everything... but I don't want to try and explain too much 'cos I don't want it to come across like I'm begging for her back, because I don't deserve [her].
"Sometimes you've got to be a man and own up to what you've done... There's a lot of things I had to deal with, personal stuff and... Big Brother really helped me and changed me for the better."
Five housemates are facing eviction this week: Callum Knell, Jack and Joe Glenny, Dexter Koh, Gina Rio and Jackie Travers.
