Zak was the second contestant evicted from the house last week. The 28-year-old model was shocked to have been evicted from the house as he expected to be in there for longer. However, the BB UK viewers decided to keep Henry in the house for Jordan - who appears to be into Matty.

Zak is planning on having a successful media career as Big Brother wasn’t the only show ITV was interested to have him on. According to The Sun, Zak revealed that he was approached by ITV bosses multiple times to be on Love Island.

Since Zak has a girlfriend, they could never get him to be on the dating reality show. Zak confirmed:

They ask me every single year, they’ve been trying to get me on for so many years.
But I’ve said I got a Mrs and I love her, so that’s out of the question for now.
If I was single, I would think about it - I don’t know if Love Island is my kind of show, but I’d think about it, we’ll see.
All I’m going to say is this isn’t the last you’re going to see of me.

The former BB housemate hinted that he has set his sights on another challenge and is hoping to sign for I’m A Celeb. I’m A Celeb 2023 will be airing in November this year and the list of rumoured contestants is juicy from two former PMs to soap stars. Zak said:

I'm A Celeb has been on my bucket list for the last 10 years, I'm just one of those guys that float with what comes my way.
I take the opportunities and I don't try to force anything. What is meant for me, will be for me.
