Jim Davidson will reportedly enter the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house after previously pulling out of the show following his arrest earlier this week
Jim Davidson will appear on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The 59-year-old comedian had pulled out of the show after being arrested on suspicion of sexual offences involving two women dating back 25 years but after discussions with his advisers and legal team, he has reportedly changed his mind and will enter the house at some point this series.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Jim is still in shock but hasn't done anything wrong and is determined to hold his head up high. He has vowed to clear his name."
Jim is on police bail until March but there are no legal reasons why he cannot take part in the show.
Meanwhile, on the show, Frankie Detorri has been sent from the luxury of the main house into the basement following a live vote with his pals.
The jockey - who along with Rylan Clark had been responsible for dividing up the housemates on launch night - then had to choose who to sent from the squalor to take his place and opted for Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, after Spencer had vowed not to speak to the group in the main house because he was so furious about the decision.
Explaining his selection, Frankie said: "I'm playing the game. I'm choosing Spencer and Heidi because a lady shouldn't be down here.
"You can go and muck up s**t upstairs."
The change was the second to affect the house after Paula Hamilton was removed from the basement on health grounds after suffering panic attacks.
The model complained she couldn't breathe and shouted she was having a heart attack, prompting doctors to enter the house to check her over, and it was then decided she should be moved into the luxury area.
A source said: "We knew there would be plenty of drama in this series but we had no idea it was going to happen so quickly.
"After speaking to the doctor and the care team Paula calmed down.
"She was moved into the main house to make her more comfortable. It's a real rags-to-riches story."
