A Celebrity Big Brother contestant has popped into a Leeds paper shop.

American reality TV star Austin Armacost, who appeared in both the 2015 and 2017 series, was pictured shopping in Carol's Newsagents in Wortley by owner Carol Roe.

He popped in to buy a EuroMillions ticket on his way to London to meet up with fellow contestant Bianca Gascoigne, and told Carol that he would be a regular customer after recently moving to Wortley.

The model and gay rights campaigner, who is famous for having dated fashion designer Marc Jacobs, first moved to Yorkshire in 2009, when he set up home with husband Jake Leeds in Huddersfield. The pair have since separated.

Austin is originally from Indiana and has also lived in New York, where he starred in the reality series The A-List: New York, which followed the lives of gay and bisexual men living in the city.
