Ron Atkinson has become the second housemate to be evicted from this summer's Celebrity Big Brother.
The 74-year-old former football manager and TV pundit lost out in the public vote last night against Louie Spence and Courtney Stodden - and happily exclaimed "yabbadabbadoo" when he learned he would be leaving.
Speaking to presenter Emma Willis when he emerged, he said: "I've had a different experience to anything else I've ever had in life.
"But honestly, I was quite pleased to come out. At times boredom is the biggest factor — there's been a lot of downtime. But there has been some good times.
"I went in with an open mind, but I didn’t really know what to expect."
And he said he was happy to have played a part in keeping Lauren Harries in the house.
"It's because I was half suggesting nominating her, then changed it. I'm glad she's through, because it means an awful lot to her.
He even cracked a football-related joke about the amount of clothes that Lauren managed to get through.
"She made more changes on the first day than Ranieri made in two years at Chelsea!"
Speaking about the other housemates, he declared that Carol McGiffin has got "a gob on her".
We told you yesterday how Carol had called Charlotte Crosby a "Geordie slag".
Big Ron was reprimanded by Big Brother while in the house for a joke about Muslim terrorists.
