Jonathan Cheban wants own reality TV show

Jonathan Cheban wants his own reality TV show in the UK.

The 41-year-old PR guru shot to fame after starring as Kim Kardashian West's best friend on 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' but it seems he's now ready to drop the famous family and carve out a career of his own across the pond.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he said: "I love it here in London. I hope to be doing some other stuff here.

"I would do another show; I'm going to start talking to them about developing something for me over here."

But no doubt Jonathan's reality TV series will be a lot different from 'Celebrity Big Brother', in which he finished in 15th place, as he bowed out after just seven days with stress.

He explained: "I'm back to normal now after a couple of days outside. I had lots of good meals, lots of sleep and a good shower. I went to Nobu and I ate a lot of sushi.

"People were eating beans and stuff [in the house] and I don't eat that kind of stuff, so that was kind of weird but people would cook stuff up out of nothing but I don't know how to cook so I was just staying quiet and taking my food.

"I was like lurking around the kitchen pretending to help and clean but actually I'm not good at that."

But it wasn't just the food the founder of was struggling with as he was also crippled with anxiety.

He added: "I literally did it day-by-day. I thought I was going to walk out on the first day. I got into the house and I thought, OK I can deal with this and then I was surprised because it was fun, fun, fun, normal, normal, normal and then all of a sudden I started getting anxious and I didn't know what to do with myself.

"Then I went outside and when I got outside, I still felt very anxious and claustrophobic and that was frightening. That's when I realised, 'Oh my God, I've got to get out of here.' "
