Arthur Fulford has reportedly revealed just why he quit Big Brother 2017 in a first chat after his exit.
Arthur apparently said he did indeed choose to leave, as opposed to being ejected, saying it was because he felt "bullied and isolated".
Arthur left the show on Sunday but little was said about his exit on the nightly highlights episodes.
A short statement released by Channel 5 at the weekend read simply: "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."
Arthur's exit played out in last night's show but with no explanation offered as to why he had left.
Arthur was first seen going into the diary room. "After a confidential off-camera conversation," narrator Marcus Bentley then said, "Arthur will not be returning."
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Arthur is quoted as saying: “It all became way too much. I felt bullied and isolated."
He continued: "But at the same time I didn’t want to allow myself to become a victim.
“I knew what I was doing the whole time, winding people up, but it didn’t come from a place of malice.
“Every year Big Brother has a ‘cool group’ consisting of the young, good looking models. They treat the rest of us as their inferiors and that infuriated me!"
Arthur added: “One of my biggest fears in the house was how I was being perceived from the outside.”
Arthur was speaking to former Big Brother housemate Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace who went on to slam the housemates' treatment of him.
She said: "I felt SO uncomfortable watching Kayleigh go for Arthur by the sofas on Sunday, calling him all sorts and Chanelle laughing in his face saying 'look at him looking around for reassurance' YUCK! What nasty morons! Bunch of mean girls."
Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
