Brandon Block has left the Celebrity Big Brother house, a spokesman for Channel 5 has confirmed.

He is the second housemate to leave the reality programme in the space of two days as he follows American artist and songwriter Ray J Norwood, who left on Tuesday.

Of his departure, Block, 49, said he was not "feeling myself" but did not reveal further details on his decision to walk away from the series.

He said: "I was incredibly honoured to have the experience, it was wonderful, but I wasn't feeling myself. May the best man or woman win."

A spokesman for Celebrity Big Brother said more information on Block's sudden exit will be revealed on companion show Bit On The Side after the main programme is broadcast.

Block made a name for himself as a DJ in the 90s, and also became well known for his former rock 'n' roll lifestyle.

Ahead of taking part in the show, Block said he was looking forward ''to getting away from technology for a while and having a laugh with new people''.

Norwood, 35, left the TV lock-up on Tuesday after he blacked out over pain caused by a cracked tooth and has since threatened Celebrity Big Brother with legal action after he said he was prevented from re-entering the house. 

The first live eviction for the series will take place on Friday.
