Could we be getting two new housemates on Big Brother 2017 soon?

With one housemate already making an unplanned exit, rumours are swirling of possible newcomers.


Arthur Fulford has quit the show and will NOT be back, Big Brother bosses announced earlier today.

A short statement released by Channel 5 this afternoon read: "Arthur has left the Big Brother house and will not be returning.

"See the housemates react on Big Brother tomorrow [Monday] night at 10pm, Channel 5."

Following Arthur's exit, it's been suggested we could get not one but two new housemates.

There's even been some rumoured names with Ellie Young's Ibiza Weekender co-star Hayley Fanshaw - who were originally meant to enter the house together - said to be 'on standby'.

The remaining contestants spotted a strong hint more people were on their way today as they inspected the screens of the housemates in the living area.

There are currently two free spaces awaiting faces, prompting speculation some newbies could be entering to make up the numbers.

Right now 14 housemates remain after less than a week into the run, which host Emma Willis has said is due to last for up to nine weeks.

Channel 5 has not yet officially confirmed if Arthur will be replaced or indeed why he left in the first place.


His exit from the house, which followed a number of rows with the other housemates, will play out in Monday night's highlights show on Channel 5 from 10PM.

For now, the latest highlights air at 9PM tonight (Sunday).
