'Shameless' star Jody Latham has reportedly quit 'Celebrity Big Brother' only hours before the launch is due to air
Jody Latham has reportedly quit 'Celebrity Big Brother' just hours before it is due to air.
The 'Shameless' star - who has had a rocky time of it recently after he was cleared of harassing former 'Apprentice' contestant Adam Hosker - was mysteriously absent from the rumoured line up, which has been unveiled just hours before the launch.
A source told The Sun Online: "He told other housemates he was pulling out a couple of days ago."
It comes after a source previously revealed Jody, 35, was looking forward to joining the 19th series of the show.
They shared at the time: "Jody hasn't had it easy this year and after a series of dramas he wants people to remember him for good things again. He was one of the nation's most promising actors during his time on Shameless and he's hoping he'll be able to recreate that success again after going on Celebrity Big Brother."
Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have made a list of "diva demands" ahead of their stint on the show.
A source shared: "We're hours away from launch and now Speidi have thrown a spanner in the works. They're clearly up to their old tricks again."
The couple - who have been dating for eight years - are said to have demanded they get fish and chips whenever they want and are threatening to not take part in the launch if they are not given their wishes.
The 'All Star vs New Stars' special - which is rumoured to be featuring the likes of Calum Best, Coleen Nolan, Kim Kardashian West's ex-boyfriend Ray-J and Khloe Kardashian's best friend Malika Haqq - is reportedly set to be the "raunchiest" yet.
A source shared: "The production team had a meeting about changes they wanted to make to the house. Even the smallest change can make a big difference in how the series will develop.
"One of the new things this series is that the beds will be smaller. It's a clear indication that they want to see the housemates get close and encourage intimacy. There's a lot of potential for bedroom action this series. It could be the sexiest yet. They will be getting close to each other right from the start."
'Celebrity Big Brother' kicks off on Tuesday evening (03.01.17).
