Upen Patel, who was voted out of the ongoing reality show 'Bigg Boss 8', is back on the show.

The British actor-model entered the house on Sunday evening. However, the episode will only be aired on Monday.

Interestingly, media reports claimed that Upen paid money to the makers of the show to ensure his comeback.

On Sunday afternoon, Upen shared a video on Instagram, thanking his fans for all the support they have extended till date and requesting them to start voting for him again as he is re-entering Bigg Boss.

The British model-actor who had been a calm and composed person in the house for most part of his journey shocked viewers with his violent behaviour in the last week of his stay.

Upen was the lady charmer of Bigg Boss Season 8. Be it ex-contestants Soni Singh, Minissha Lamba, Natasa Stankovic, Deepshika and Diandra Soares or contestant Karishma Tanna, Upen was a favourite of all.

And the one person he often stood for was his best friend on the show – Karishma Tanna.

However, he had a rather infamous showdown with Gautam Gulati inside the confession room where he even threatened to kill the TV actor.

Following his outburst, Upen also had fallouts with his friends Ali and Dimpy who had supported him during his stay in the house.

While most of the contestants praised Upen for his grounded demeanour, he was often labelled 'cursed' as well - because his friends inside the house failed to stay in the show.

And if this was not enough, his attempts to stand up for his friends also earned him flak.
