Big Brother’s Scott Mason has temporarily left the house today to be told about the death of a loved one.

The 20-year-old ‘celebrity historian in the making’ was called out of the house on the Channel 5 show and informed of the sad news, but returned almost immediately to the compound.

It has not yet been revealed if the death is of a family member or close friend, but if Scott stays in the house it is likely that he’ll reveal the news to housemates.
