*UPDATE: This post has been updated at the end, with further information.*

Former Baywatch actor Jeremy Jackson has been removed from the Celebrity Big Brother house, following an ‘explosive incident’.

Whilst details of Jackson’s removal are still sketchy at this moment in time, Channel 5 have confirmed that tonight’s episode will tell more, and will feature “explosive drama between the housemates and includes [the] incident that results in Jeremy Jackson being removed from the house.”

Channel 5 have also confirmed that tonight’s episode has been moved from its originally fixed 9pm slot to a later time of 10pm (Saturday 10th January); meanwhile Celebrity Big Brother’s ‘Bit On The Side’ host Rylan Clark also confirmed the news in a series of tweets:

Meanwhile, Big Brother narrator Marcus Bentley continued to tease the incident, also via Twitter, saying that the ‘dramatic events’ had delayed the recording of his voiceover for the episode. “I’m not allowed to say what has happened but it’s ‘explosive’. The show is on at ten tonight.” commented Bentley.

Alexander O’Neal, Ken Morley and Chloe Goodman are the first celebrities to be up for the show’s weekly eviction which will take place this coming Tuesday (13th January). Channel 5 have yet to confirm whether the eviction will still go ahead following Jackson’s ejection from the house.
