BREAKING Big Brother 2017 news this afternoon as Channel 5 have revealed Arthur Fulford has left the house.
Arthur has quit the show and will NOT be back, show bosses have announced.
A short statement released by Channel 5 moments ago reads: “Arthur has left the Big Brother house and will not be returning.
“See the housemates react on Big Brother tomorrow [Monday] night at 10pm, Channel 5.”
It’s not yet been revealed the reasons behind Arthur’s exit but it follows a number of rows with his fellow housemates over the past week.
There was an explosive clash on Friday night between Arthur and Kayleigh where she branded him a f**king weirdo, which was then followed by another row between Arthur and Rebecca.
Then yesterday Arthur rowed with Lotan and Imran in another bust up, this time over DUST.
Arthur had accused some of the housemates of bullying him on last night’s episode before his exit from the house today, for as yet unknown reasons.
But while the housemates have quickly grown tired of Arthur’s antics, they had won over many viewers.
Before news of his exit, Arthur’s odds of winning the show were cut to make him the second favourite.
Aoife Heffron, Spokeswoman for bookies BoyleSports commented “Ellie Young is the current favourite to win, but Arthur Fulford is most certainly one to watch after his odds were cut from 16/1 to 5/1.
“The housemates may not be a fan of Arthur’s antics, but punters most certainly are as they are happy to back him to win.”
Arthur had entered the house on launch night before his exit today, making a stay of six days inside the house.
Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
The latest episode airs tonight (Sunday) at 9PM although Arthur’s exit won’t be shown until Monday night’s show at 10PM on Channel 5.
