All of the housemates faced eviction in tonight’s show apart from Linda Nolan and Casey Batchelor who were saved from the public vote by Wednesday’s evictee Jasmine Waltz.
Joining Emma Willis for his post-eviction interview, Lionel said: “It feels a bit sad [to be out] because I’ve loved them all in there but I’ve missed my family so much”.
Lionel admitted he does have a bit of temper but also finds it difficult to bear a grudge.
During his time in the house, the actor and entertainer clashed with Luisa Zissman on multiple occasions, however he insists he has no hard feelings towards his ex-housemate.
“I adore her. She says it how it is and we’re going to remain great friends,” he revealed.
Lionel also praised Ollie Locke with whom he was handcuffed to during his first few days in the house, describing the Made In Chelsea star as kind and helpful.
Lionel finished his interview by saying he would like TOWIE favourite Sam Faiers to win the show.
