We’re only a few days in to Celebrity Big Brother and it’s already kicking off – Jeremy Jackson has been REMOVED from the house.
Show bosses confirmed today that the American actor has left the show after an explosive incident.
Channel 5 is remaining tight-lipped about the exact reason for the former Baywatch star being given the boot but they have been forced to move tonight’s programme back to a later time slot as a result.
A statement read: “Tonight’s episode of Celebrity Big Brother has moved to the later time of 10pm on Channel 5.
“This episode features explosive drama between the housemates and includes an incident that results in Jeremy Jackson being removed from the house.”
At the time of writing, it had not been confirmed if Jeremy’s removal was permanent or temporary.
The other housemates have spoken to Jeremy – who rose to fame as a teen, playing the son of David Hasselhoff’s character Mitch Buchannon on Baywatch – about his eccentric behaviour inside the house.
Television presenter Nadia Sawalha said to him: “You literally inhabit a different character every day.”
Jeremy replied: “It’s called prismatic… It means there’s multiple shades to me. I have multiple dynamics to my personality. I don’t just fit into one box.”
Nadia responded, saying she thought he might have been given a challenge by Big Brother: “We thought you had a task to wear as many different clothes as possible. And we would get a reward.”
Before entering Celebrity Big Brother, Jeremy made no secret of his personal issues and has admitted to having a severe drug problem during his time on Baywatch.
He says he beat his addiction after he was arrested in a methamphetamine raid and a long stay in rehab.
Jeremy remained clean until 2000 but in 2011 appeared on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew in a bid to beat a steroid addiction.
He has also appeared in a sex tape with adult video star Sky Lopez.
Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight on Channel 5 at 10pm.
