TeamGB Judo athlete Ashley McKenzie who appeared on Celebrity Big Brother broke down in tears after he was eliminated from the Olympic Games today after just one fight.

McKenzie, 32, was one of the stars of the 2012 celebrity version of the reality TV show, appearing alongside former East Enders actress Cheryl Ferguson as well as glamour models Rhian Sugden and Danica Thrall and comedian Julian Clary and rapper MC Harvey.

But the veteran Olympian, who represented TeamGB at London 2012 and Rio 2016 in the 60kg category, failed to make an impression in Tokyo and was knocked out of the competition in his first fight.

Speaking after his defeat to Karamat Huseynov of Azerbijan, on Saturday, he teared up as he told of his disappointment.

He said: ‘At the moment, I’m mostly sad. I’ve put in a lot of work for this one tournament.

‘Loads of things went wrong when I got over here and I just pushed them aside and I tried to not let them affect me due to Covid and [stuff] like that.’

The heart-broken 2015 British Open Champion apologised to his supporters and said he wanted to go home to London.
