Breaking Celebrity Big Brother 2017 news this evening as Brandon Block has left the house.

"Brandon Block has left the Celebrity Big Brother House", Channel 5 confirmed in a very short statement issued to press this evening (Wednesday).

Brandon said in the press release: “I was incredibly honoured to have the experience it was wonderful, but I wasn’t feeling myself. May the best man or woman win.”

Channel 5 say more information will be revealed on Bit On the Side tonight.

Brandon's exit from the Celebrity Big Brother house follows reports at the weekend claiming he had to be taken to hospital last week.

Newspaper articles claimed that Brandon complained of chest pains and was first seen by an on-site medic.

However he was then taken to hospital over fears his condition could worsen.

“Brandon wasn’t well at all. It was pretty serious," a source told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper. “He immediately saw the medics that were on standby at the house.

“But there were concerns his condition could worsen and could even become critical so it was decided he needed to go to hospital.”

Fortunately, Brandon was eventually given the all clear and returned to the house with no mention of his hospital dash was made on the show.

However CBB sources said he was being monitored around the clock by producers.

It's not clear if Brandon's exit is related.
