The reason why Rodrigo Alves left the Celebrity Big Brother 2018 house has reportedly been revealed.
Rodrigo was put on a 'final warning' just 24 hours into the series after his use of the 'N word'.
Big Brother announced: "After a further incident, Rodrigo has been removed from the Big Brother House and will not be returning. #CBB"
However, Rodrigo claimed he wasn't removed but quit after he "demanded to leave" when pal Natalie Nunn was evicted in Friday night's live show.
In an interview with The Sun, Rodrigo said: “I was not coping very well to be without my mobile phone and not being in contact with my family and friends. After Natalie left I felt very upset because she was the life and soul in the house and got very much misunderstood."
He concluded: “I’m no longer interested in the show or anything to do with it. Simply because it wasn’t for me.”
In Saturday's show, Rodrigo was shown entering the Diary Room before Big Brother cut back to the housemates. His chat with Big Brother was not aired.
Now insiders have claimed that Rodrigo allegedly behaved "seriously inappropriately" in scenes not aired.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Rodrigo behaved seriously inappropriately inside the house. It came to the attention of producers who watched the footage back.
"After a discussion they decided the only course of action would be to remove him from the house. Producers wanted minimum disruption to the show after making their decision."
They added: "Rodrigo left the house in the early hours of Saturday morning following the live eviction on Friday."
Housemates were not told of Rodrigo's reasons for exiting, with Big Brother simply announcing that he had left and would not be returning.
Celebrity Big Brother 2018 continues nightly on Channel 5.
The next live eviction takes place on Tuesday night.
