Will Perez Hilton be next to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house after Ray J’s exit?
Perez Hilton has offered to replace Ray J on this year’s series of Celebrity Big Brother.
It has been confirmed that Ray J has officially left the CBB house after being rushed to hospital due to “extreme tooth pain”.
A TMZ report stated: “[…] a dentist came to the set, gave Ray eight painkillers, four of which he was to take immediately and the remaining four the next morning.
“Ray woke up Tuesday in unbearable pain, took the remaining four pills and then pleaded for help. We’re told producers agreed to take him to the hospital but on the way out of the house he blacked out.”
Despite his pleas to return to the house, it looks like Ray J will be forced to exit the show for good now.
However, another candidate for the line-up has made his availability well known on social media.
American gossip blogger and reality television personality Perez Hilton took to Twitter upon hearing the news.

Perez was quick to offer his services but only “if the price is right”. Making a dig at this year’s line up, he said that the 2017 series has so far been a “boring season” and implied that he could be the one to spice things up again.
Perez explained why he had not made an appearance on the original line-up, saying: “The price was not right, okay! It was way off.
“I wanted to get paid double and I think I’m worth it.”
It has not been confirmed whether Ray J will actually be replaced in the house, but if Perez’s crazy antics in the 2015 series are anything to go by, he would definitely add some entertainment to proceedings.
Can you imagine Speidi and Perez in one house? Now that would guarantee some fireworks.
Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly at 9pm on Channel 5.
