“In agony”: CBB bosses fear Katie Price may quit show due to illness

There won't be any housemates left to win at this rate!

New Celebrity Big Brother contestant Katie Price may have only entered the house on Saturday night, but rumours of her premature departure have already started.

Katie is reportedly "in agony" after a scar from her recent boob reduction failed to heal properly and became infected, and she's delaying getting the problem sorted until after her time on the show ends.

The former glamour model discussed her worries herself on Saturday, and although she said she plans to stay in the house, Katie is apparently missing out on vital surgery which was booked in for today.

"The scar has gone septic," Katie told fellow contestant Cami Li when she tried to give her a hug.

"They were going to take them out on Monday because the implant was hanging out…I can only lift one of my arms because of all the swelling. But the pain wasn't enough to stop me from coming in here. It's not like I’m running around or anything."

Alexander O'Neal became the third housemate to leave the show without a public eviction yesterday, after receiving a warning for using "homophobic" language towards celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.

An inside source told the Daily Star that CBB bosses are worried about the fate of the show if any more housemates leave unexpectedly. "We can't possibly lose any more celebrities. We're cursed," said the insider.

With a £500,000 (€652,000) fee at stake for her time on the show, we reckon Katie would have to be in some serious pain to decide to leave… but it's certainly not a good idea to put her health at risk for the sake of money!
