Issac Jagroop, 23, who previously played for Mildenhall Town FC and was on the books of Ipswich Town as a youngster, was one of 14 people to enter the house during last night’s live launch.

The former Hall player now lives in Birmingham and works as a club promoter.

He said: “I like the sort of banter that’s like the edge of being off limits. I was just a class clown. Just any opportunity to have a laugh.

“I won’t be playing up to nothing. If I feel like someone needs to be told, then I will tell them, I won’t hesitate to say what I am thinking.”

Big Brother host Emma Willis has promised viewers that the last series of the reality show will be the “biggest and best yet”.

Speaking on the show’s live launch, Willis touched on the announcement that Celebrity Big Brother and its “civilian” equivalent will no longer be airing on Channel 5 after its latest run.

The controversial reality TV show has seen its ratings decline over the years.

The final of the first series broadcast on Channel 4 in 2000 attracted 9.45 million viewers.

The final of the most recent series, broadcast by Channel 5 in 2017, was watched by just 1.11 million.

Willis revealed that 20,000 people had applied to be a housemate for the final Channel 5 series, which had been whittled down to the 14 contestants who will appear on screen.

Big Brother will be on Channel 5 at 9pm on Sunday.
