Koo Stark pulls out of Celebrity Big Brother?
Koo Stark has reportedly pulled out of 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The 59-year-old actress - who previously dated Prince Andrew - is said to have departed from the show only days before she was due to enter the house.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Koo has remained discreet about her fling with Andrew but bosses hoped the other celebs might get her chatting and she would spill some juicy royal secrets."
And whilst Koo - real name Kathleen Dee-Anne Stark - is set to miss out, the other housemates will be treated to a "theatrical and dramatic" theme.
Of the Vaudeville team, host Emma Willis previously revealed: "It's going to be quite a theatrical and dramatic theme. The house will look theatrical and plush. And the garden is like an old Whitechapel street, Jack the Ripper-style, which will be amazing.
"We're going to basically see an amazing period drama play out over the weeks. It's about testing how good they are as actors. Will their masks slip? There's always going to be a sinister side to any 'Big Brother' theme and I'm sure there was a sinister side to Vaudeville. So it's going to be Big Brother being naughty and messing with them."
