Big Brother UK Contestant Scott Mason Will Stay In House Despite Sister’s Death

While we continue to wait on the Big Brother 14 premiere next month and anticipate the launch of the Big Brother 2012 live feeds early bird special on Monday, we’ve been following along with the trials and tribulations of the Big Brother UK 2012 contestants a bit. It’s always fascinating to see how the game is played across the pond.

Sadly, we saw this week that Big Brother UK contestant Scott Mason left the Big Brother 2012 house temporarily on Wednesday after being informed of his sister’s death. The 21-year-old student left the Big Brother house for approximately 90 minutes but has decided to stay on the show despite his obvious grief.

Scott Mason was called into the Big Brother UK Diary Room on Wednesday and then taken out of the house by show staff to be informed someone close to him had died. For privacy reasons, the name of the person was not been released to the public, but it has since been revealed the person who died suddenly was his sister.

In response to the news, Big Brother UK contestant Scott Mason decided to leave the Big Brother house for about 90 minutes. During that time, he reportedly made the decision to continue on in the competition and return to the Big Brother house.

“Scott has suffered a bereavement of someone close to him,” a post on the official Big Brother UK Facebook page read. “After leaving the House temporarily to receive the news, he has decided to rejoin the House for the time being.”

Although he did decide to return to the house and the competition, Scott Mason told his fellow Big Brother UK contestants that the death was “a family matter and I don’t want to talk about it.” There was no further information revealed about how his sister died, only that it was sudden.

Very sad.
