‘Celebrity Big Brother’: Calum Best ‘Bit On The Side’ No-Show Leaves Rylan Clark To Find A Cheeky Replacement

We ️ Barbara.

Rylan Clark and the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side’ team were left stumped on Wednesday (1 February) night, when Calum Best failed to turn up to film the spin-off show.

As the latest ‘CBB’ evictee, Calum was due to appear on the programme, however, for reasons that aren’t yet clear, he didn’t make it to filming - which left Rylan searching for a replacement.

It didn’t take the host long to work out how to remedy the situation though, and in his typically cheeky style, Rylan introduced a blow-up doll, with Calum’s face stuck on it, along with the wonderful Barbara:

Shortly before Calum’s stand-in made its grand entrance, Rylan told viewers: We were supposed to have Calum Best on, but we genuinely don’t know where he is.

“This ain’t even a gag. This really ain’t!”

Calum is yet to reveal why he didn’t make it to the studio, but to be honest, Barbara was brilliant so we weren’t too fussed. Sorry Calum.

The current series of ‘CBB’ is about to come to an end, and the grand final will take place on Friday (3 February).

It’s fair to say that it’s been a dramatic month in the Borehamwood bungalow, thanks to housemates including Nicola McLean, Jedward, and of course, Kim Woodburn.
