Kimberly has left the Big Brother house.
The contestant was temporarily removed from the house and excluded from eviction after falling ill.
Big Brother told housemates that while Kimberly was feeling better, she is still receiving treatment and is too ill to return to the show.
Kimberly’s love interest Steven Goode described the news as “f**king horrible”.
He added: “I knew she was very sick yesterday when she woke up. She would never have given it up.”
The details of Kimberly’s illness remain a mystery and it is not yet known whether she will be replaced on the show, or return at a later date.
Big Brother continues tonight on Channel 5.
