Celebrity Big Brother 2016: David Gest Has Quit The Show

It has been confirmed that David Gest has quit Celebrity Big Brother due to ongoing health issues.

The American producer, and friend to the stars, has been staying in Big Brother’s spare bedroom for the last few days as he battles an illness and he has now decided to leave the house.

A spokesperson for Channel 5 shared: “Due to medical reasons, David Gest has decided to leave the Celebrity Big Brother House.

“His exit will appear in tonight’s show on Channel 5 at 9pm.”

David leaving will no doubt be a blow for his fellow housemates, with the star being one of the most popular contestants in this year’s series of the show.

The 62-year-old’s exit comes less than one week after Jonathan Cheban decided to leave the Celebrity Big Brother house due to feeling claustrophobic and anxious in confinement.

It is thought that tomorrow night’s eviction will still go ahead, with John Partridge, Tiffany Pollard, Danniella Westbrook, and Kristina Rihanoff all facing the public vote.
