Celebrity Big Brother news! Rodrigo Alves leaves and latest from the house

Rodrigo Alves exit aftermath

Rodrigo Alves has bowed out of Celebrity Big Brother, although just why he left remains in dispute.

Channel 5 announced yesterday 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'.

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

However last night's highlights did not reveal why Rodrigo left. Instead, Rodrigo was simply seen entering the Diary Room before Big Brother cut back to the other housemates.

Big Brother then 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."

Rodrigo claims he quit rather than being removed, 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.”

Elsewhere in last night's show, Chloe and Jermaine's secret flirty notes were exposed to the group while Roxanne and Ben's closeness also became a house talking topic.

Roxanne lamented: "It seems like a boy and girl can't be friends."

Meanwhile, housemates have been taking on all sorts of challenges for this week's shopping task.

They've been taking on the 'Public Eye - a giant walking eyeball - which has asked them to do everything from stand up to a dance battle.

But the housemates are unaware that this week a luxury shopping budget is out of reach for them.

Instead, if they pass they'll receive only a basic budget while if they fail they won't even get that, reduced to eating just basic food rations.

The twist is a punishment for Chloe and Jermaine's rule breaking after writing notes to one another.

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 continues nightly on Channel 5.

The task highlights air from Sunday night at 9PM.
