Alex: "I'm A Role Model For Youngsters"
Cauliflower-eared cage fighter Alex Reid has insisted that
he is a role model for young lads.
During a chat with oldest housemate Stephanie, he was told
by the sexagenarian actress that his appearance on Celebrity
Big Brother would help make his name.

and his fight record of 8 Wins, 8 Losses and 1 Draw doesn't
exactly mark him out as a champ, despite the fact that Vinnie
calls him 'Rocky!'
