Gay Big Brother 7 housemate, Shabhaz has shocked housemates after revealing that he was once a rent boy and spent time in jail.

The Glaswegian Muslim told fellow contestants that he had been jailed on suspicion of being a prostitute and fined £450 when found in a gay cruising area, and was once paid ten pounds for sex.

He admitted to being a rent boy for a week when he was homeless, “I did it for a tenner – the guy was disgusting, but I was starving.”

Shahbaz then told how he was beaten up by the client and had the money stolen.

He claimed he was jailed for three months and served a week after being a rent boy.

The 37-year-old has become isolated from the house after arguments over his personality and his food hiding antics.

Meanwhile Bonnie and Sezer have joined Richard, Grace, Lea, Shahbaz, Lisa and Pete in the Big Brotherhood, meaning they get access to their suitcases.

Gay Canadian Richard is currently second favourite to win the show behind Pete, according to the William Hill bookmakers.
