Celebrity Big Brother branded "fake" after Ray J's mysterious exit

Celebrity Big Brother 2017

Viewers have branded Celebrity Big Brother 2017 "fake" following last night's show.

It follows Ray J's departure from the house, which was first announced on Tuesday night.


A spokesperson for Channel 5 confirmed that Ray J departed the series earlier this week but did not revealed why he had gone, saying that details about Ray's exit would be revealed in Bit On The Side.

However host Rylan Clark-Neal only said on the spin-off show: "Ray J has left the Celebrity Big Brother house. I know, it’s sad, it’s sad.”

In last night's show, little more was said about Ray J's apparent decision to leave, among rumours he was 'forced' out.

"This stinks. It's become such a fake show now. Shame on Channel 5. Obvious now why we get No Live Feed...” one viewer tweeted, in a message retweeted by Ray J himself.


"Erm... they could have explained Ray J's exit more than 'He left the Big Brother house for medical reasons' #CBB" another wrote online.

Since Ray J's exit, a story by website TMZ has claimed that Ray J was taken from the house to hospital because of "extreme tooth pain".

Ray J went on to speak up himself, accusing show bosses of 'ignoring' his pain and claiming other housemates even went 'on strike'.

"I’ve been complaining about my tooth for 3 and half a days," he said, "It got to the point where me and some of the housemates felt Like was I being ignored...

"We took petitions to say we wouldn’t do any more tasks until Ray J gets his tooth fixed."

Ray J said he eventually blacked out and was taken to hospital, where a quick treatment saw him bounce right back but he was 'banned' from returning to the house.


"I end up in the hospital, 45 minutes and I’m cool, I'm feeling fine and ready to go back in the house and they won let me back in," he alleged in a chat with TMZ. "I'm really hurt by it because it sucks because I was having such a good time."

Ray J said it was "really sad" to not be allowed back and branded the decision "unfair".

Rylan appeared on ITV's This Morning yesterday but didn't have a lot more to say.

He responded to Ray's claims by saying: "I'm sure that's not the full case..."
