Injured Keely may be forced to quit BB

Keeley may be forced to quit ‘Big Brother’ following a second day in hospital.

Keeley may be forced to quit ‘Big Brother’ following a second day in hospital.

The petite travel agent has been kept out of the compound for the second day in a row, receiving hospital treatment for a fractured ankle after she injured herself during this week’s ‘Save and Replace’ task.

A spokesperson for the show said: "Keeley has fractured her ankle and is in hospital receiving treatment. She will remain in hospital for a couple of days as she needs an operation to mend the fracture.

"Together, Keeley and ‘Big Brother’ producers will discuss whether she will return to the show once she is feeling better. We all wish her a speedy recovery."

According to The Sun newspaper, her time out of the house could mean she is forced to drop out of the competition, because ‘Big Brother’ rules state that housemates in hospital will not be allowed to re-enter the house if they are absent for more than a day.

Earlier today, housemates received a notice from Big Brother about Keeley, but bosses on the channel decided to cryptically cut the sound from the live video stream.
