Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton has staged a "fake walkout" from the Big Brother house.
The controversial housemate will secretly live in a neighbouring room while the remaining housemates will be "blissfully unaware" that his walkout was not real.
A spokesman for the Channel 5 show said: "Earlier today, Big Brother asked Perez to stage a fake walkout of the Big Brother house. Perez will be living in secret while the other housemates are blissfully unaware of his ongoing influence on the events within the house."
Perez, 36, has clashed with his Celebrity Big Brother housemates including outspoken columnist Katie Hopkins and model Camila ''Cami Li'' Figueras during his time in the house.
It will appear to the remaining housemates that Perez has become the fourth person to leave the current series unexpectedly after R'n'B star Alexander O'Neal, former Coronation Street star Ken Morley and ex-Baywatch actor Jeremy Jackson all left in scenarios that were not usual evictions.
Alexander became the third person to leave the show unexpectedly, following the removal of Ken and Jeremy.
After his shock departure, which came on the heels of another heated row with Perez, Alexander , 61, said being in the famous house ''became unbearable''.
Ken, 72, was evicted from the show for using ''unacceptable language'' including repeated use of the word ''negro''.
Jeremy, 34, was booted out after former Page Three girl Chloe Goodman claimed he drunkenly tried to look at her breasts while the pair were alone in the toilet.
On Friday, Alicia Douvall, the glamour model known for having undergone a string of cosmetic operations, was evicted.
It was only the second proper eviction of the show, with Chloe the first to be booted out after a public vote.
