'Celebrity Big Brother' 2017 Line-Up: Plastic Surgery-Lover Rodrigo Alves Pulls Out To Have Operation

'I don’t want to have another operation, but I have no choice.'

Plastic surgery-lover Rodrigo Alves has been forced to pull out of an upcoming stint in the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house, for health reasons.

Over the weekend, Rodrigo was a surprise name on a supposed leaked ‘CBB’ line-up, but it seems he’ll no longer be appearing in the Channel 5 reality show.

An insider told OK! Online: “Roddy was supposed to enter the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house in 2018, but then things got moved around and he was scheduled to join the next series starting in August.

“But now, he’s decided to go off around the world and party for a month and also get some more surgery on his nose which he has wanted for a very long time.”

Opening up about the surgery in question, Rodrigo has admitted that it’s an important nose op to correct his breathing, rather than just another of his many cosmetic procedures.

He said: “I will be undergoing very painful and risky surgery to try to correct my breathing.

“I don’t want to have another nose operation, but I have no choice.”

'CBB' launches next week

Earlier this year, Rodrigo underwent his 50th cosmetic operation, and has made multiple media appearances in recent years to discuss his love of going under the knife for enhancements. 

He was previously rumoured to be heading into the regular series of ‘Big Brother’, but ultimately wound up linked with the celebrity version instead.

Other stars thought to be heading into the ‘CBB’ house when this summer’s series kicks off on Tuesday (1 August) are former ‘EastEnders’ actor Shaun Williamson, ‘Love Island’ star Paul Danan and ex-Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding.
