Instead, he's quit the show, saying it was the right time to leave - and he was hungry! So, we'll just have to watch some Kardashian repeats to get our Cheban fix.

He's appearing on Bit On The Side tonight to chat about his experience in the house and perhaps give a bit more info about why he left. In the meantime, catch up on your Chebs knowledge with our handy A-Z of all things Jonathan!
