Olympian Ashley was the second housemate to be evicted from the Big Brother house in the finals finishing his Celebrity Big Brother 2012 experience in fifth place.
Speaking to Brian Dowling after his exit tonight, Ashley said: “I’m alright, the crowd are behind me today. It feels amazing, it makes me feel the public are behind me which is great.
“I am a bit gutted that I didn’t win, but I’ve made it to the final and had an experience.”
Discussing his relationship of sorts with Rhian, Ashley said: “Well, at the start I thought she was kind of… on it. I found out she was off it… but she’s an amazing girl, but I hope she and her girlfriend get married and get their OK magazine deal.
“I think she’s a good girl, she’s come in the house with a bit of reputation, but she left a good girl.”
