Rodrigo Alves insists he 'quit' Celebrity Big Brother after bosses say he was removed

Celebrity Big Brother Summer 2018

Rodrigo Alves claims he quit Celebrity Big Brother 2018 - despite show bosses saying he was removed.

Channel 5 said this morning that Rodrigo was removed from the house following a "further incident".

Rodrigo was put on a 'final warning' just 24 hours into the series after his use of the 'N word'.

Today, Big Brother announced: "After a further incident, Rodrigo has been removed from the Big Brother House and will not be returning. #CBB"

But Rodrigo claims he wanted to leave after pal Natalie Nunn was evicted in Friday night's live show.

“The experience in the house was amazing but enough for me," he 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.

“All I wanted out of the show was to have fun and to show to the UK that I'm a nice and fun person.”

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, Rodrigo concluded: “I’m no longer interested in the show or anything to do with it. Simply because it wasn’t for me.”

Channel 5 have not yet revealed what "incident" led to Rodrigo's exit from the house or the exact circumstances of his departure.

In tonight's show, Rodrigo was simply seen entering the Diary Room before Big Brother cut back to the other housemates.

Big Brother told the group: "Rodrigo has left the Big Brother house and will not be returning. Would one housemate collect Rodrigo's suitcase from the storeroom and pack all of Rodrigo's belongings."

After one week, the Celebrity Big Brother line up is down three housemates after Rodrigo's unplanned exit, Natalie's eviction and Stormy Daniel's launch no-show.

Celebs currently left in the house are Hollywood actress Kirstie Alley, Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas and headline grabbing footballer Jermaine Pennant.

Joining them are model Chloe Ayling, soap star Roxanne Pallett, The Only Way Is Essex star Dan Osborne and Gabby Allen, a Love Islander from Season 3 in 2017.

Also on the cast are Comic, Radio and TV presenter Hardeep Singh Kohli, Married At First Sight star Ben Jardine, TV psychic Sally Morgan and rogue trader Nick Leeson.
