Rapper Coolio has walked out of the Ultimate Big Brother house following a massive bust-up with fellow housemate Nadia, it has been confirmed.

Reports suggest that tensions had been simmering between the pair on Friday night, although things finally came to a head when Coolio was caught in the act of hiding some of Nadia’s clothes.

They were each ordered to the Diary Room following the incident, where the rap star decided it was time to leave the house.

A spokeswoman for the show was unable to confirm whether he would still be paid for his appearance on the show.

Coolio is the third person to leave the Ultimate Big Brother house in as many days.

Big Brother 11 winner Josie Gibson walked out of the house on Thursday after saying she felt “claustrophobic” in there. She later confessed to Davina McCall that being in the house had sent her “over the edge”.

And on Friday night John McCririck became the first housemate to be evicted by public vote.

The racing pundit had been determined to be the first person to get the boot and entered the house on Tuesday holding a sign which read ‘Evict me please’.
