Ray J has left the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 house today, walking out after one week.

The rapper has been noticeably absent in updates from the house today (Tuesday) and now the official Big Brother website states that Ray J has "left".

A spokesperson for Channel 5 has confirmed that Ray J departed the series this week but did not reveal why he had left.

The spokesperson said that details about Ray's exit would be revealed in Bit On The Side at 11PM on Channel 5.

However Rylan Clark-Neal only said: "Ray J has left the left the Celebrity Big Brother house. I know, it’s sad, it’s sad.”

American musician Ray J was reportedly set to scoop one of Celebrity Big Brother's biggest EVER fees.

Singer Ray J previously dated Kim Kardashian and back in 2007 appeared in a leaked sex tape with her that hit the internet.

Show bosses were reportedly in talks to get Ray - who is cousin to fellow music star Snoop Dogg - to appear on Celebrity Big Brother for a while.

A 'CBB source' told The Sun newspaper previously: “Bosses are over the moon with how the negotiations are going.

“Kim is one of the biggest celebrities in the world and they were never going to get her but booking Ray J means they’ll get someone with proper insight into what goes on behind closed doors."

According to TMZ, Ray's deal was worth a cool $1 million which works out just over £800,000 at the time of writing.

In addition, he had apparently also been given a $30,000 allowance for flights and hotels while in the UK.

During his time in the house, we've seen Ray J speak about his time with Kim as well as his history with Whitney Houston and fellow housemate Stacy Francis.

Ray J was one of six housemates facing eviction this week however the eviction will continue as planned.

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 continues nightly on Channel 5.
