The ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ housemates are getting ready for the first eviction in the current series, with five of the famous contestants facing the public vote.
Gary Busey and reality star Angelique ‘Frenchy’ Morgan were the first two contestants to be put up for eviction in the ‘Celebrity Scrapheap’ challenge by Leslie Jordan, who had been voted ‘Star of the Show’ by the British public.

The ‘Will and Grace’ actor later chose former boxing coach Kellie Maloney to join them, claiming Kellie was not there for “entertainment” but to go on a “personal journey”, which was news she did not take well, eventually being reprimanded for branding Leslie a “little queen”, and then threatening to “knock [him] sparko”.

A day later, despite him putting on a show that got Leslie (and us!) a little hot under the collar, David McIntosh was still chosen as the fourth housemate to face the boot in the show’s first eviction.
During Monday night’s highlights show, the four potential evictees went head-to-head in a fake game-show called ‘More Or Less A Celebrity’, which saw Frenchy emerging victorious, and therefore saved herself from elimination, instead choosing to put former ‘Strictly’ pro James Jordan up in her place.

Finally, Leslie was then asked by Big Brother to choose one last member of the group to go up for eviction, choosing ex-‘Emmerdale’ star Claire King, claiming he felt she was “the strongest” person.
However, she was quick to insist that this was “so not true”, adding she’d been “on the verge of crying for three days”. Oh dear…
One of them will be leaving the house during Wednesday’s live eviction, but with the public voting to save rather than to evict, we’ll be interested to see whether it’s the most unpopular housemate who leaves or someone who has avoided drama - particularly after the results of the ‘regular’ series of ‘Big Brother’ earlier this month.
