DJ/producer Brandon Block has pulled out of Celebrity Big Brother, tearfully revealing to the housemates he was struggling with the experience
Brandon Block has left the Celebrity Big Brother house.
He is the second housemate to leave the reality programme in just two days, following American artist and songwriter Ray J Norwood.
Brandon, 49, looked emotional as he approached his co-stars after speaking to Big Brother in the Diary Room before asking to speak to them all.
He said: “Listen, I’ve not been happy for a few days. I love you all, I really mean that, I’m just not myself.
“It’s been a great experience but I’m just not feeling me, I don’t want to sit out there all day and, you know… smoke. Crack on everyone.”
On the outside he said: “I was incredibly honoured to have the experience, it was wonderful, but I wasn’t feeling myself. May the best man or woman win.”
A spokesman for the show said more information on his exit will be revealed on companion show Bit On The Side after the main programme is broadcast on Wednesday night.
Brandon made a name for himself as a DJ in the 1990s, and also became well known for his rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle.
Before entering the house, Brandon had said he was looking forward ‘to getting away from technology for a while and having a laugh with new people’.
Ray J, 35, left the house on Tuesday after he blacked out over pain caused by a cracked tooth. He has since threatened Celebrity Big Brother with legal action after he said he was prevented from re-entering the house following treatment.
The first live eviction for the series will take place on Friday.
