Exclusive: AJ Odudu ‘Bit On The Side’ exit confirmed
AJ Odudu has left her role as a host of Big Brother spin-off Bit On The Side after just one series, bbspy can confirm.
A spokesperson for Channel 5 informed us this morning that the 25-year-old presenter ‘mutually agreed’ to her depature with show producers.
The news comes after it was announced that Iain Lee and Carol McGiffin have bagged roles on its psychology-themed sister programme Bit On The Psych, which AJ used to front.
Lee will co-host with Rylan Clark – who is returning to BOTS with Emma Willis – while Celebrity Big Brother finalist McGiffin will appear as the head panellist.
AJ joined the team alongside Rylan as replacements for Jamie East and Alice Levine for this summer’s series. Rumours of her exit first emerged a fortnight ago when the former X Factor contestant tweeted a picture from a CBB engagement featuring just him and Emma.
The thirteenth series of Celebrity Big Brother will take place in January, with a launch date expected to be announced next week.
