Coolio quits BB after Nadia row
Rapper Coolio has sensationally walked out of the Big Brother house after having a huge bust-up with fellow contestant Nadia.
The pair spent Friday night bickering, with the simmering tension coming to a head when the Gangsta's Paradise singer was caught red-handed in the act of hiding the transsexual's clothes.
They were each ordered to the Diary Room where, after calming down, Coolio decided it was time to leave, a spokeswoman for the show explained.
She was unable to confirm if Coolio would still get paid for his appearance following his decision to walk out.
The move comes just hours after racing pundit John McCririck was evicted from the Big Brother house, having made no secret of his wish to be given the push.
He was the first celebrity evictee in the current series after losing out in the public vote to Coolio.
The eviction came after series winner Josie Gibson quit the show, moaning that she felt "claustrophobic".
McCririck, who had been wandering around with a small banner saying "Evict me please", was not upset at being kicked out.
He told host Davina McCall when he went into the house on Tuesday that he would like to be out as soon as possible.
He also said he was only in it for the money.
