'Big Brother': Why Did Arthur Fulford Leave? Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace Explains

He was fed up of being treated like an 'inferior' by the 'cool group'.

As ‘Big Brother’ viewers speculate over Arthur Fulford’s exit in last night’s (12 June) show, it seems his motivation for leaving has been revealed - and bizarrely, it’s former housemate Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace who has spilled the beans.

Prior to the revelation that Arthur had walked from the show, viewers were told he’d had a confidential talk with producers in the Diary Room, leaving many to ponder why he’d decided to leave via the back door.

Writing in her column in The Sun, Aisleyne has revealed that she “wasn’t going to rest” until she found out what had gone down, and after tracking him down on Twitter, she’s shared what he had to say.

According to Aisleyne, he told her: It all became way too much. I felt bullied and isolated. But at the same time I didn’t want to allow myself to become a victim.

“I knew what I was doing the whole time, winding people up, but it didn’t come from a place of malice.

“Every year ‘Big Brother’ has a ‘cool group’ consisting of the young, good-looking models. They treat the rest of us as their inferiors and that infuriated me!”

During his week in the ‘BB’ house, Arthur repeatedly got on the wrong side of his housemates, including former ‘Ex On The Beach’ star Kayleigh Morris, who he accused of “bullying” when she imitated his accent.

The two later clashed again when he moved the house’s food supply into the storeroom, with Kayleigh getting so angry producers called her into the Diary Room to cool off.

Following Arthur’s exit, it’s been revealed that six housemates are facing this week’s ‘BB’ eviction, which comes after the first round of nominations this series.

‘Big Brother’ airs nightly on Channel 5.
