"I don't wear dirty underwear, Big Brother": See 5 angry stars who've quit

20 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Alexander O'Neal has revealed his reasoning for quitting Celebrity Big Brother following his dramatic departure over the weekend.

The singer became embroiled in two unpleasant confrontations with showbiz blogger Perez Hilton, which resulted in a formal warning from Big Brother over O'Neal's use of an offensive term.

Speaking to CBB host Emma Willis on Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On The Side, Alexander revealed why he walked, saying: "I did it for myself and for my housemates."

He added that "the stress became unbearable" prior to his exit, and was subsequently forced to accept that the 'Perez problem' was not going to go away.

But Alexander is not the only disgruntled celebrity housemate to voluntarily leave, and we doubt he'll be the last.

Some, like Claire King, withdrew from the show due to illness, while others have been removed by producers.

But can you remember some of the former CBB stars »

22:58Ooh, a snippet of live footage. Perez is speaking to Katie, which is presumably straining her ability to be nice. Although they are talking about her (and her horrible fat-shaming show) so maybe not...

Rylan Clark on Celebrity Big Brother line-up: 'It's not the usual'

4 January 2015 6:53 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Rylan Clark has hinted about this winter's Celebrity Big Brother line-up, calling it "very, very strong".

The Big Brother's Bit On The Side host told Metro that fans won't be disappointed with the line-up.

He said: "We've got a very, very strong line-up.

"We've pretty much got everyone, but a contestant is never confirmed until they walk through the doors because anything can happen up until the day they go in."

Clark also revealed that there will not be many reality stars appearing in this series, but he hinted that one unlikely reality figure may be involved.

He said: "We're trying to steer away from reality stars but there may be one. Maybe not one that's very well known, it's not your usual line-up!"

Stars rumoured to be appearing in the series include Perez Hilton, Keith Chegwin and Calum Best.
