It has been claimed the star had left the compound of the Channel 5 reality series while still a housemate, in order to fulfill commitments to ‘Geordie Shore’.
While viewers hadn’t been made aware of this on-screen, the Daily Star uncovered Chloe’s secret trip out of the house, with an insider claiming the other housemates felt she was getting preferential treatment because Channel 5 is owned by the same company as MTV, which airs ‘Geordie Shore’.
A ‘CBB’ spokesperson has now revealed Chloe did leave the house before she was evicted on Friday (20 January), but insisted she had minimal contact with the outside world - usually a fundamental rule of the show.
“Chloe left the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house for prearranged commitments,” a rep told HuffPost UK.
“At the time of leaving the house she was chaperoned by a member of production and had minimal contact with the outside world.”
However, it is not the first time bosses have allowed a contestant to leave the house during the series.
Rylan Clark-Neal was allowed to attend rehearsals for ‘The X Factor’ tour when he was a housemate, while Mario Falcone visited the American embassy to obtain a visa for ‘TOWIE’ filming in Las Vegas during his stint in 2013.
‘Celebrity Big Brother’ continues tonight (23 January) at 9pm on Channel 5.
