As a porn star, cage fighter and bouncer allegedly prepare to enter the Big Brother house tomorrow, last year's winner has claimed that FOUR of his ex-housemates have attempted suicide.
Aaron Allard-Morgan, who was met with boos when he emerged victorious in Channel 5's first full season of the reality show, made the claims on The Wright Stuff this morning.
"I genuinely fear for them, they don't realise what they're letting themselves in for," he said of the new intake.
"[Producers] give you very little preparation for what's likely to happen. From my year, with the 15 of us, I know that four of them have tried to commit suicide after the show just because of the ramifications and impact that it has on your life."
Though he did not name the unhappy evictees, he added: "You're not prepared and you don't have the aftercare that perhaps you should be getting afterwards. The people that are going in tomorrow, they're not gonna hear this."
One positive, though, is that he is still in a relationship with Faye Palmer, with whom he had an explosive romance during the course of his stint in the Elstree compound.
"Big Brother is a game show, and everybody who goes in there plays a game, including myself. You come out and you're not sure if the person who you could have this relationship with was playing a game with yourself," he said.
"And I knew that I was very much in love with her and it turned out she was the same so it worked out brilliantly."
Big Brother returns tomorrow on Channel 5.
