They are dropping like flies over in Casa de Big Brother at the moment, with Nancy Dell'olio evicted on Friday night, Jonathan Cheban walking out last week, and now David Gest has left the show.

A Channel 5 spokesperson said: "Due to medical reasons, David Gest has decided to leave the Celebrity Big Brother House. His exit will appear in tonight’s show on Channel 5 at 9pm."

David Gest, who is the former spouse of Liza Minnelli, had been feeling unwell for a while - sure one housemate even thought he was dead, for crying out loud. (Too funny.)

Multiple housemates have also threatened to leave the house, with Angie Bowie also packing her bags last night but then changing her mind when she got to the Diary Room saying; "I'm sorry I'm so cranky, but when I don't sleep, I just, that's it."

Basically, they're all at the end of their tether... which is awful and all, but it's making for damn good TV.
