'He's one to speak his mind': Tyla confeses that Jonny Mitchell, 26, may ruffle some feathers when he first gets into the Celebrity Big Brother house
Excited for it: Tyla Carr, 23, dished to MailOnline on how former flame Jonny Mitchell, 26, will do now he's headed for the Celebrity Big Brother house
On how the outspoken bad boy will fair once he's inside the currently all-female house, Tyla has no doubts he will 'ruffle a few feathers'.
She said: '100% Johnny's one to speak his mind. Johnny's one to speak his mind. Not in a mean way, but he'll definitely say what's on his mind so I reckon he'll ruffle a few feathers.'
Despite Jonny's intense clash with Islander and summer fling Camilla Thurlow about feminism in modern dating - which left him as the villain of the show - Tyla is sure there won't be a repeat of that discussion, at least not with any of the female contestants, but does see a friendly partnership with controversial comedian Dapper Laughs.
She added: 'I don't think Johnny really clashes with anyone particularly. Girl wise, I don't think so, no. I reckon Johnny will really get on with Dapper Laughs.'
No arguments here: She added: 'I don't think Johnny really clashes with anyone particularly. Girl wise, I don't think so, no. I reckon Johnny will really get on with Dapper Laughs'
Dapper Laughs, real name Daniel O'Reilly, shot to fame as a stand-up comedian and pick-up artist, for which he enjoyed widespread success four years ago before he fell from grace spectacularly when he made a joke about an audience member at a stand-up gig 'gagging for a rape' while also being accused of misogyny.
Stepping away from what could be a contentious friendship, Tyla gave a glimpse of what the Essex native was really like once the Love Island camera's stopped rolling, with his jet-setting lifestyle being a source of contention when locked up in confinement.
Tyla exclaimed: 'I think he's gonna do really well. The only thing he's going to struggle with is being in a house again and there being no way out. In Love Island, he was so moody because he travels constantly and he's always out so being stuck in one place just drove him insane.

'That's why I ended up leaving things because he was just so moody. So, I think he'll do well if he can contain his cr**py mood.'
What makes Celebrity Big Brother different from Love Island is the lack of pressured romance, said Tyla, who is looking forward to seeing Jonny be 'the real Jonny'.
'There's been so much that's gone on, especially on Love Island it's all about fighting for love, in Celebrity Big Brother it'll just be him and him generally, so I think it'll be a really nice way to get across the real Johnny.
'I think sometimes things can get the better of him and he doesn't really know how to deal with it. Sometimes he needs to think about how things are going to affect him in the next few days rather than how he feels in the moment.

'I know him on the outside of Love Island and he's a completely different Johnny so I'm actually really looking forward to watching it.'
It's not always been the highlife for the TV personality, who recently denied attacking his ex-girlfriend, Made in Chelsea's Stephanie Pratt after their turbulent split in December.
He finally broke his silence on the reality star's claims that she rang the police because she was 'terrified' of him - and continued to deny her cheating accusations.
He told OK! Magazine: 'I was completely baffled and still am. She also said she had video of me attacking her, but I categorically deny there was ever any abuse and I haven’t heard from the police.'
Stephanie had accused Jonny of being a 'pig with a violent temper' in a slew of tweets after they broke up last month and claimed her driver had recorded footage of him being abusive to her, all of which he denies.
