Jonathan Cheban has left the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house, it has been confirmed
Jonathan Cheban has left the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.
The PR maven, and Kim Kardashian's best friend, had been struggling to cope during his time on the reality television show, and regularly complained of feeling claustrophobic.
On Monday night (11.01.16) it was confirmed that the 41-year-old had given in and exited the famous house.
A Channel 5 spokesperson says: "Jonathan Cheban has decided to leave the Celebrity Big Brother House. His exit will appear in tomorrow night's show (12.01.16) on Channel 5 at 9pm."
During a chat in the Diary Room, Jonathan had explained he was feeling incredibly claustrophobic.
He said: "Right now I'm feeling a little bit edgy and claustrophobic. I'm definitely a little bit torn on whether to stay. There's a point when my mental stability is more important that entertaining.
"I know Big Brother would not want me pain especially when I give 24 hour entertainment."
Later talking to his best friend in the house, former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Gemma Collins, the bubbly blonde encouraged him to stick it out, adding that it would help boost his UK profile.
But Jonathan responded: "It's not that, I'm huge here. We're ['Keeping Up With the Kardashians] on in 180 countries!"
He agreed to stay for another day and see if it improved, but later told a producer in the Diary Room: "I feel like it's closing in, there's no room to hide so until I get out of here I'm not going to be calm."
