Celebrity Big Brother 2017

Brandon Block has quit Celebrity Big Brother 2017 and here's exactly why.

Coming just a day after Ray J's exit, Brandon is the second celeb to leave this year's series before the first eviction.

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

Brandon revealed why he left in a press release, saying: “I was incredibly honoured to have the experience it was wonderful, but I wasn’t feeling myself."

He added: "May the best man or woman win.”

Channel 5 say more information will be revealed on Bit On the Side tonight at 10PM on Channel 5.

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

The Daily Star on Sunday newspaper claimed that Brandon had complained of chest pains and was first seen by an on-site medic before being taken to hospital.

“Brandon wasn’t well at all. It was pretty serious," a source told the tabloid. “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 given the all clear and returned to the house.

It's not clear if Brandon's exit today is related to the reported hospital dash.

90s DJ Brandon is the second housemate to leave the show this year, following in the footsteps of Ray J who departed the series last night.

Despite the exits, this Friday's first eviction is still going ahead, with Angie, Austin, Speidi, Stacy and James C all facing the axe.

Celebrity Big Brother airs nightly at 9PM on Channel 5.
