Big Brother’s Paul has said the edit of the reality show surprised him as he told Yahoo: "It’s been a massive shock to the system."

He continued: "I just wanted to have a good time. I feel like that’s what I’ve done. I wanted to push my mental health as much as I could. What gets aired compared to what’s entertainment for the show and what storyline shoots.

"It's all completely different. Coming out and knowing what I know now, it’s been a massive shock to the system, coming out especially what I came out to. But it’s been amazing, I’ve got support around me - especially from Big Brother. It's amazing. I've got my family and my girlfriend around me. It's been an amazing experience."

Before being evicted from the Big Brother house alongside Dylan, the security officer decided to cause mischief with his best friend in the house, Olivia, after they were not invited to Yinrun’s party.

The TV star decided to try tease his fellow housemates by throwing cling film balls.

Explosive scenes followed as a fiery Trish lashed out at Paul and she labelled him a "bully" for supposedly targeting Noky with his cheeky behaviour.

Afterwards when the vote was being announced, Paul said he had a gut-feeling he would be leaving the reality series in the first double eviction.

However, Paul confessed he was not prepared for the roaring reaction from the audience as he came out to the sounds of boos.

"We heard the boos and I’m not joking, it was one of the scariest moments in my life," he said. "I felt the most vulnerable I've ever felt in my life and I just wanted to call me mum.

"I was sat, there shaking. I had the cushion up against my face like I didn't know what I was coming out to.

"Everything was building up in my head, it was, I won't lie. It was one of the worst moments of my life. It was hard to take because I just didn't understand what I'd done.

"I didn't understand what had happened. I didn't understand, I just felt like I was just in there at the time of my life. I went in there to have a great time and push mental health as much as I could and speak to people.

"And have these amazing conversations and learn about people and different backgrounds. And that’s what I done. I don't want to set out to do, but obviously on the outside everything looks completely different and it was hard."

Emotions were running high for the star who has risen to overnight fame on Big Brother.

"It was a shock," he said. "I had to brace myself and as we see everyone was crying when I left, it was hard.

"I held the emotions back. There was definitely emotions there that I had to hold back, walking out on that stage and seeing my family and my girlfriend. It was hard."

Paul had imagined his exit would have been completely different and even had planned what he would have liked to have done.

He said: "My plan was to come out, take me T-shirt off, swing it around above my head and have a good time. But it wasn't the time or place to do that.

During his time in the house, there had been excitement over whether a romance would blossom between Paul and Olivia.

But Paul revealed his heart very much remained with his girlfriend who was never far from his mind while he was on the reality series.

Of scenes that were cut, he said: "Everyone got the picture and I didn't. I was in the dining room crying my eyes out. I was asking for me picture but that never got shown.

"When I was in bed, I was getting into bed with her teddy bear - my girlfriend's teddy bear."

He added: "The narrative got pushed for me and her from the get go but me and Olivia made it quite clear."

Despite being no romance, Paul revealed the pair had a genuine friendship that was real.

He said: "I've said to everyone, Glaswegians and Scousers have always had the similar banter.

"So we were always gonna get on, we were not, she likes the gym, you know, she likes to have a laugh. She laughed like me and she got involved with the banter."
