Celebrity Big Brother 2017: Paul Danan was evicted [Channel 4]
Shortly after the departure of Brandi Glanville, Emma Willis went live to the house once more to reveal that Paul Danan had also lost his place in the house.
But it’s not all bad news for the former Hollyoaks actor, who played Sol Patrick on the soap between 1997 and 2001 – as he was treated to an old-school reunion on Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side.
The star reunited with Hollyoaks’ Stephanie Waring live on the show, who portrays Cindy Cunningham on the Channel 4 soap – 17 YEARS after they were last together.

And that wasn’t it for Paul’s big eviction night – as he also came face-to-face with his fellow Celebrity Love Island star Calum Best when appearing on Rylan’s spin-off show
Stephanie took to Instagram to share the reunion news with her 117k followers, writing: “Not seen him in 17yrs but he is out tonight and I get to squeeze him!!!@pauldanan.”
Just hours before, the blue-eyed actor found himself the fifth person to be evicted from the CBB household.
Dangerous Danan entered the house and quickly found himself in the centre of whatever controversy was brewing, as he clashed with housemates including Sarah Harding and Jemma Lucy.
The former Love Island star took a while to say his goodbyes and the booming voice of Celebrity Big Brother had to repeatedly tell him to leave “immediately”.
As he bounded down the stairs to chat to host Emma, viewers on social media were shocked by the result and promptly called for the actor to be reinstated into the house.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “I’m actually sad to see Paul go, he was horrible at times but very entertaining to watch #CBB.”
Another desolate viewer commented: “What the ??????!!!!! Noooooooooooo!!!!! Get him back in!! NOW! #Paul #CBB.”
Celebrity Big Brother continues at 10:30pm on Channel 5.
