Shabby quits Big Brother!
Shabby quits Big Brother!

Shabby has decided to leave the Big Brother house. After 27 days in the Channel 4 house, the actress and professional squatter decided enough was enough and made her exit at 15.10pm on Monday afternoon. Shabby - real name Keeley Katchadourian - left through the diary room without saying goodbye to her fellow housemates. Describing herself as "the most unpopular housemate", Shabby said her time in the Big Brother house had come to an end. Earlier in the day, she told Josie: "While I fully respect your view that people shouldn't walk because they've been given this opportunity, people are spoiling my experience." On Sunday night, both Shabby and Caoimhe asked Big Brother if they could leave after an argument with Ife and a dispute with other housemates following a party for the five housemates who won the wheelchair basketball task. Shabby had requested to leave the house a number of times in the past couple of weeks. She faced eviction twice and last week made a pact to leave with Caoimhe should one have been evicted in the public vote. But both were saved on Friday night as Sunshine was evicted. Shabby will be remembered for crush on Caoimhe, her love of hats and numerous temper tantrums.
