WATCH: Brandon Block says an emotional goodbye as he quits Celebrity Big Brother
Brandon Block is the second celebrity to walk from the Celebrity Big Brother house, following Ray J’s exit on Tuesday.
Brandon Block has bid an emotional farewell to his fellow celebrity housemates after deciding to walk away from the series.
Channel 5 released a statement yesterday evening (Wednesday) confirming the celebrity’s departure, saying: “Brandon Block has left the Celebrity Big Brother House”.
Brandon later spoke up about the decision for himself. He explained in a press release: “I was incredibly honoured to have the experience it was wonderful, but I wasn’t feeling myself. May the best man or woman win.”
That same night, the official Big Brother UK Twitter account posted a short clip showing the 90s DJ gathering his housemates round to tell them the news.

He said: “Can I speak to everyone please? I’ve not been happy for a few days, I love you… I really mean that, I’m just not myself… I just can’t…
“It’s a great experience but I’m just not feeling me and I didn’t want to sit out there all day… crack on everyone. Kick it’s a**e.”
The housemates appeared saddened but understanding, as Austin Armacost reassured Brandon: “You gotta do what’s best for you.”
Meanwhile, James Jordan broke down in tears as he hugged his fellow contestant.
Viewers will get to witness the exit in full in tonight’s episode of CBB, before yet another housemate is evicted in Friday’s live show.
Austin Armacost, Angie Best, Speidi, Stacy Francis and James Cosmo are the unlucky five facing the eviction and it is the public who get to decide who goes next.
But with three celebs gone, the house will certainly be feeling a little sparse. Might this mean a new housemate could be appearing soon?
