Celebrity Big Brother 2014 housemate quits (and another goes missing!)

CBB contestants get cold feet

Celebrity Big Brother 2014

At least one 'A list star' has had cold feet ahead of tonight's Celebrity Big Brother 2014 live launch.

A total of fifteen celebs were set to enter tonight, the most in some seven years.

But one has already pulled out at the last minute, while a second has threatened to quit and a third left minders on a wild goose chase after going missing.

The Daily Star newspaper reports that one female celebrity backed out over fears the show "wouldn't be good for her career".

Meanwhile, an American female cast member is threatening to quit after having fears about the show.

“This housemate has really been struggling, didn’t like being in a confined space with lots of people and couldn’t seem to understand what was going on," a source told the newspaper. “That doesn’t bode well seeing as this person was about to be locked in a house with people he or she doesn’t know."

But that hasn't been the only headache for bosses over the weekend, who have worked non stop to revamp the house for tonight's live launch following last Friday's BBUK final.

A third housemate ended up going missing to get a spray tan when they were meant to be in hiding.

The source claimed: “She was supposed to be in hiding but we didn’t know where she was.

“When she did turn up we found out she had disappeared because she wanted to go to her favourite spa and get a spray tan!”

Celebrity Big Brother starts tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
