Richard Arnold quizzed Bradley on GMB, asking: “When you left the house, you had to go dark didn’t you, longer than any normal housemate would normally have to?”

Bradley explained: “When I left, I left on Wednesday night and it got aired on Thursday night.

“And the whole of Wednesday I was with a chaperone in lockdown. No phone, only an iPad with Netflix on it but that was it.”
