Rylan Clark ‘sad’ over AJ Odudu Big Brother exit
Rylan Clark has spoken out about AJ Odudu’s departure from Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side, saying he’s ‘really sad’ to have lost his presenting partner.
Last month Channel 5 confirmed to bbspy that the 24-year-old Blackburn personality had ‘mutually agreed’ to leave the late-night spin-off show after only two series.
Rylan – who joined the Big Brother team alongside AJ in May – has since spoken of his disappointment at the decision, telling The Daily Star: “It’s going to be really sad without AJ. I love her and we’re such good friends on and off screen.
However, he resolved: “But I’ve been given this opportunity and I have to do it on my own and I’m hoping I’ll do as good a job as I did last time.”
The former X Factor contestant added that he’s ‘looking forward’ to seeing how Carol McGiffin does as head panellist on the Saturday psychology-themed show ‘Bit On The Psych’, which will now be co-hosted by Iain Lee following AJ’s exit.
Meanwhile, Rylan – who is now dating former Big Brother 2013 housemate Dan Neal – teased that the launch twist for the new series of Celebrity Big Brother will result in some housemates forming ‘false friendships’.
The show returns to Channel 5 on Friday 3rd January at 9.00pm on Channel 5.
