Celebrity Big Brother 2016: Jonathan Cheban has quit the show!

Tonight it’s been confirmed that Jonathan Cheban has quit Celebrity Big Brother 2016, nearly a week after entering.


Just minutes ago, a spokesperson from the show told TwitCelebGossip Jonathan had left the Celebrity Big Brother house in a short statement.

The spokesperson said: “Jonathan Cheban has decided to leave the Celebrity Big Brother house.

“His exit will appear in tomorrow night’s show on Channel 5 at 9PM.”

His exit comes days after he was talked out of leaving the house.

He told Big Brother in the Diary Room at the weekend: “I just wanted to talk to the producer. I am very anxious in the house and I am ready to go.”

Jonathan said the claustrophobia was getting to him and remarked: “There’s nowhere to hide… It’s becoming impossible, I don’t know where to sit… I can’t even enjoy it.”

He added: “I’m so anxious, I’m going to have a heart attack.”

“Obviously Big Brother doesn’t want that,” BB responded.

After an hour later and Jonathan had a change of heart, saying: “I’m going to try and give it another chance and see how I feel and tomorrow will be my big deciding day to see if I can hack it out or go home. I’m excited to give it one more shot.”

“Big Brother is excited you’re staying,” Big Brother replied.

“For now,” concluded Jonathan.

It seems, however, Jonathan could not stick it in the Celebrity Big Brother house and is now the second person to leave the house.
