Big Brother bosses are reportedly fearing for Scott Mason, after he threatened to commit suicide if his nan passes away while he's on the show.
The 20-year-old is said to have shocked the other housemates after telling them bluntly: “She had better still be alive. If she’s died then I’ll commit suicide.”
He added: “I’d want to, though. She’s like my best friend.”
A spokesperson for Channel 5 didn't respond to the comments.
Scott previously took time out of the house after being told of a death in his family earlier in the series.
It had been reported that his sister had suddenly died, however it was later revealed to have been a 'family friend'.
The death certainly shock Scott however, and some housemates have expressed fears over the youngster's drinking habits.
Big Brother issued the History student with a warning last month after he was spotted downing perfume when the group were given an alcohol ban.
