Jonathan Cheban has sensationally quit the Celebrity Big Brother house!
The exact reason for his departure has not yet been confirmed but apparently the house left him feeling claustrophobic.
A statement released this evening by Channel 5 confirmed that Kim Kardashian’s BFF had left, but we will have to wait until tomorrow night’s episode before we find out why.
Jonathan previously told the diary room that he was feeling torn over whether or not to stay. Housemate Gemma Collins, who became close friends with Cheban since they arrived in the house, attempted to persuade him to stay explaining that it would help him build a profile in the UK, however Cheban seemed reluctant to believe that was necessary. He said, “It’s not that. I’m huge here. We’re on in 180 countries!” he added, referring to ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’.
In another conversation with the diary room, Cheban appeared anxious to leave explaining that he would not feel calm until he had left the house.
Celebrity Big Brother is on at 9pm tonight.
