A Channel 5 spokesperson said: "After being unwell for a few days, Angie Bowie has decided to leave the Celebrity Big Brother House. Her exit will be addressed in tonight's live show on Channel 5 at 9pm."

Angie's exit comes after viewers watched her rant in the Diary Room during Monday night's episode (17 January) as she packed her suitcase and demanded to leave the house.

The 66-year-old shouted and screamed at Big Brother and also banged on the door as she told them: "I want to leave now! Get me my stuff. Give me my stuff. Now! Get me out of here right now!"

Housemates could hear Angie from the living room as Big Brother did their best to calm her down. Still, she insisted: "'Get me a car, and let me get gone. If you wanna be cheap just get me an Uber."

The former model and ex-wife of the late David Bowie has threatened to quit the show several times.

She recently demanded Big Brother let her leave, asking for her passport, phone and a car to London, but in the end she decided to stay, staying: "I'm sorry I'm so cranky, but when I don't sleep I just, that's it."

Last week, Big Brother told Angie that she could leave whenever she wanted to following the news of her ex-husband David Bowie's death. After being told by her representatives off-camera about the sad news, she decided to remain in the house.

Angie is now the third person to quit following the departures of David Gest and Jonathan Cheban.

CBB airs at 9pm on Channel 5.
