Celebrity Big Brother: EVERY housemate who has left without being evicted!

We've had THREE housemates quit the current series of Celebrity Big Brother so far; that's more than the amount that have left through actual evictions!

It's always a shock when a housemate decides they've had enough and leaves – or gets kicked off by CBB - but it's happened quite a few times over the years…

Here is every housemate who has left without being evicted:
