Claire King has left the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.
The former 'Emmerdale' actress - who starred as man-eater Kim Tate on the ITV soap for a decade before taking on the role of Karen Betts in 'Bad Girls' - has been forced to leave the reality show house due to a health scare.
A spokesperson for Channel 5 told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Due to ill health Claire has had to leave the Big Brother house to receive medical attention."
It is unknown why the 51-year-old star has been forced to leave the house and bosses are said to be unsure when, if ever, she will be ready to return.
Claire has been popular with viewers since entering the house last month but she recently revealed that she thought being evicted was a "win-win" situation.
During a conversation on CBB, she said: "It's a win-win though as you can go home and eat steak."
Meanwhile, former 'Will and Grace' actor Leslie Jordan was the second celebrity house mate to be evicted on Friday (29.08.14), following the voting off of Kelly Brook's fiancé David McIntosh earlier in the week.
Leslie said he had been "so naïve" about joining the show, which he'd never seen before, and compared the experience to a "boot camp".
He added: "I thought I was going to come in and it was going to be an endless cocktail party."
