Brandon Block has left the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.

The 49-year-old DJ has quit the show just a day after Ray J left the famous abode after suffering from a severe toothache.

Speaking after his exit, Brandon said in a statement: "I was incredibly honoured to have the experience it was wonderful, but I wasn't feeling myself. May the best man or woman win."

It comes after it was claimed Brandon was rushed to hospital with "chest pains" last week.

A source said at the time: "Brandon wasn't well at all. It was pretty serious. He immediately saw the medics that were on standby at the house. But there were concerns his condition could worsen and could even become critical so it was decided he needed to go to hospital."

However, a message posted to his Twitter account played down the incident, writing: "Checked in with producers last night and It's been a bit fabricated! The tests were routine (sic)."

Brandon - who is the founding member of techno group The Aloof - was popular in the 80s and 90s but is well known for storming the BRIT Awards in 2000 after his mates told him he was to collect an award and allegedly getting into an altercation with Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood.

Of Brandon signing up to enter the house, a source previously said: "Brandon was a huge name in 90s. He was on radio constantly and his hard-partying ways were all over the papers.

"Not only was he a successful DJ but also a big producer throughout the 80s, too. When 'CBB' offered him a spot this year he was well up for it."
