A Ribble Valley rapper has entered the Big Brother house to take part in the current series of the Channel 5 reality TV show.

Cristian MJC, aka Matthew James Clarkson (20), from Mellor, is a former Clitheroe Royal Grammar School pupil studying biomedical science at University College, London.

Receiving a mixed reaction on his way into the infamous house, the self-confessed “ladies man” told Big Brother host Emma Willis: “I play tennis at county level and I go to one of the best universities in the world – number four to be exact. In terms of achievements, I’m pretty established and getting established in music.

“If something happens and I don’t want to do music, I could just be a doctor or a surgeon.”
