Pre-BB: CBB Star forced to pull out of show due to cancer

Big Ang has been forced to pull out of the upcoming summer edition of Celebrity Big Brother after being diagnosed with cancer

Big Ang – who first found fame on US Reality show Mob Wives – has been forced to quit the line up for Celebrity Big Brother, missing out on a deal worth £200,000.

The Sun reports that the american – who’s real name is Angela Raiola – has undergone surgery to remove a tumor the size of a lemon from her throat. An insider said “Big Ang pulling out is a huge blow. She would have been a great housemate”

“Producers are scrambling to find a replacement”

While she isn’t a big name here in the UK, CBB bosses were hoping she would cause fireworks in the Big Brother House. Other stars reportedly set to enter the House include Janice Dickinson.
