David Gest wants return to Celebrity Big Brother house to help Stephanie Davis pick a guy
David Gest wants to make a sensational return to the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house to help Stephanie Davis choose between Jeremy McConnell and Sam Reece.
The music producer was forced to quit the reality TV show last week after being taken severely ill, suffering from tonsillitis, swollen neck glands and extremely high blood pressure, much to his disappointment.
He has been a friend of Stephanie for the last three years and tried to help her on the show deal with her strong feelings for Irish hunk Jeremy, even though some of his words of wisdom were tough.
Having been out of the house since early last week he is back to good health and has been a guest on 'Loose Woman' with his appearance becoming one of the most memorable of all time when he had Coleen Nolan reluctantly wish his 40-year-old cousin Uranus Hertz a happy 40th birthday, leaving the studio audience in stitches.
He also appeared on 'Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On The Side', and was so funny host Rylan Clarke proclaimed he was his favorite ever guest.
Now he's back to full health and back on TV, Gest wants to go back into the 'CBB' house and tell Stephanie who she needs to choose between, her guy on the outside Sam or Jeremy - who she has been getting closer and closer to.
Gest exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I have been watching the show to see what's happening with Stephanie and Jeremy for myself. Since I have been out a few of our mutual friends have informed me of certain circumstances I was unaware of and that Stephanie never told me. I think I was a little too harsh on Stephanie when I was in there but only because of what she never told me. There may be more to the story than meets the eye. She's a great girl but just not mature for her age. Sometimes she is just like a child. It's hard for her to take guidance. Matters of the heart are strong and she needs some one-on-one advice. There are great qualities in each of these guys from what I know."
Gest was one of the favourites to be crowned the 'CBB' champion and fans were dismayed when he had to leave after being struck down with illness.
Many viewers believed he was going to make a comeback when host Emma Willis promised them a "special guest" was going in to the house and were left bitterly disappointed when TV health expert Gillian McKeith was revealed to be going in to deal with the "toxicity" between the contestants.
Gest - who is ranked as one of the top five greatest 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' contestants of all-time - had lots of support to win with even Phillip Schofield stating on 'This Morning' that the American star was his favourite to win.
Support for him on social media has been huge too.
