Shabby (Keeley) Katchadourian has quit the game and left
the Big Brother House, the first person to do-so this series.
to follow Caoimhe out the door if she got evicted on Friday
night, both nominees survived possible eviction when Sunshine
got the boot, and so they remained in the game.
However, the pair threatened to quit last night after they
had words with Ife and clashed with the group, following a
party for the wheelchair-basketball task winners. So, Caoimhe
and Shabby gave Big Bro notice of their intentions
to go, and asked the entity to sort it out.
The pair have been in-and-out of the Diary Room today and
were urged not to make a joint decision about quitting. Shabby
went for another chat with the BB Top Bods this afternoon
and was told that they couldn't let her go yet because she
was too emotional.
However, after a chat in the toilet with Caoimhe wherein
she expressed concern at her own rage, the former actress
walked into the Diary Room for the last time just after 3pm,
without saying goodbye to her peers.
Despite her volatile behaviour, Shabby was slowly gaining
popularity over the weeks, and her supporters hoped that she
would perform a turnaround and become more likeable if Caoimhe
got evicted. Indeed, she was the bookies' fifth-favourite
to win just a couple of days ago.
That said, it's true to say that Shabby was something of
a hate figure, and seeing as it's very hard for a housemate
to recover when they reach that status, she was unlikely to
last the distance anyway.
The hat-wearing squatter lasted 27 days and leaves ten people
in the game. She is likely to be replaced by a number of new
housemates at the end of this week.
